Designed with surgeons in mind

We know ease of use is important in a surgical setting, which is why SERI® Surgical Scaffold was created with the following attributes:

  • Proprietary knit design is tear resistant and easy to cut in any direction without unraveling1,2
  • Large pores for suture retention and enhanced visibility while suturing1,2
  • Easily drapable over the defect site during implantation1
  • No rehydration necessary—SERI® Surgical Scaffold is ready for immediate use out of the package.2 However, a brief dip (minimum 2 to 3 seconds) in standard sterile rinse solution is recommended prior to implantation2
  • Does not require refrigeration; SERI® Surgical Scaffold should be stored at room temperature in a dry area2
  • The shelf life of each SERI® Surgical Scaffold package is 3 years from the date of sterilization1; there is an expiration date printed on each package

SERI® Surgical Scaffold is easy to cut in any direction without unraveling1,2

Indications for Use
SERI® Surgical Scaffold is indicated for use as a transitory scaffold for soft tissue support and repair to reinforce deficiencies where weakness or voids exist that require the addition of material to obtain the desired surgical outcome. This includes reinforcement of soft tissue in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and general soft tissue reconstruction.
