The NEUROTUBE is an absorbable woven polyglycolic acid mesh tube, which is designed for primary or secondary peripheral nerve repair or reconstruction. The tube replaces the classic nerve graft technique for the repair of nerve gaps. The walls are corrugated for strength and flexibility. The corrugations prevent the tube from collapsing under normal physiological soft tissue pressures. The Neurotube is resorbed through the process of hydrolysis.1
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
- Ideal for both primary or secondary peripheral nerve repair or reconstruction
- Repairs nerve gaps
- Replaces the classic nerve graft technique
INDICATIONS FOR USE:
The NEUROTUBE is intended for single use in patients with an injury to a peripheral nerve, in which the nerve gap is more than or equal to 8 mm, but less than or equal to 30 mm.
