Endoform™ Antimicrobial Restorative Bioscaffold and Endoform™ Natural Restorative Bioscaffold are unique extracellular matrix (ECM) products for the management of acute and chronic wounds. Endoform™ products support all phases of wound healing and are appropriate for use early in wound management to restore protease balance and advance healing to the proliferative phase.(1)
- Provide a natural porous ECM bioscaffold for rapid cell infiltration(2)
- Contin more than 150 ECM proteins known to be important in wound healing(3)
- Contain residual vascular channels to support the establishment of new vasculature(4)
- Can indicate the presence or absence of proteases and help restore protease balance and guide re-application(5)
- Can be used by any wound care provider from day 1(1)
Endoform™ Antimicrobial Restorative Bioscaffold contains 0.3% ionic silver, appropriate for use in early acute and chronic wound management where there is an elevated risk of infection.
- Provides broad spectrum antimicrobial activity for up to 7 days*(6)
- Prevents biofilm formation(6)
- Is non-cytotoxic to dermal cells(6)
*Endoform™ Antimicrobial contains 0.3% ionic silver to protect the dressing from microbial colonization
Ionic silver has been included in Endoform™ Antimicrobial to protect the device from microbial contamination. Reduction in colonization or microbial growth on the device has not been shown to correlate with a reduction in infections in patients. Clinical studies to evaluate reduction in infection have not been performed.
