HYALONECT®: Improving Outcomes of the Final Phases of Orthopedic and Trauma Reconstructive Surgical Procedures
Surgical Mesh to Maintain Relative Position of Engrafted Bone Tissue
HYALONECT is a bio-resorbable knitted mesh used in orthopedic and trauma reconstructive surgeries. It is composed of HYAFF®, a benzyl ester of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of the extracellular matrix. The mesh is resorbable and may be kept in place by application of sutures. HYALONECT is available in two sizes, 5×5 cm or 5×10 cm.
