Procedure Guide for SERI® Surgical Scaffold

Your resource for surgical techniques in soft tissue support and repair

The SERI® Surgical Scaffold procedure guide provides helpful principles on product preparation, suturing, postoperative management and more. This resource also includes a step by step guide with soft tissue support and repair techniques as well as clinical case studies with actual results.

This guide was developed based on information from published literature and input from leading plastic surgeons with extensive experience using SERI® Surgical Scaffold and soft tissue support and repair products generally.

The guide is provided for our information only and is intended to serve as a component of a comprehensive educational training program; it is not intended to be a stand-alone instruction. As with other surgical and medical decisions, it is the responsibility of surgeons to use sound medical judgement in utilizing the procedures best suited to the needs of each patient and to the skill and experiences of the surgeon.

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.
