Feline Surgical Case Report Using Vetrix SIS

Vetrix BioSIS was used in interesting feline surgical case report performed at University of Zurich.

Vetrix BioSIS ECM is a perfect solution for soft tissue repair. We are constant learning of interesting procedures where Vetrix SIS was used to repair a defect. A perfect example is the feline case report submitted several years ago by Dr. Angelo Andreoni and Dr. Katja Voss from our good friends at the University of Zurich. Remember, when you are faced with a soft tissue injury, use Vetrix BioSIS to not only prevent scarring, but actually regenerate new organized tissue. Just like in Dr. Andreoni and Dr. Voss’s study, Vetrix BioSIS is scientifically proven to regenerate a variety of host tissue

CASE REPORT: Reconstruction of a large diaphragmatic defect in a kitten using small intestinal submucosa (SIS)

Angelo A. Andreoni, Dr Med Vet, Katja Voss, Dr. Med Vet Diplomate ECVS

Abstract:

A double-layer sheet of small intestinal submucosa (SIS) was used to reconstruct a large chronic diaphragmatic defect in a 4-month-old kitten. The SIS graft was easy to use, postoperative recovery was uneventful, no side effects of the SIS implant were observed, and the SIS graft resulted in restoration of normal clinical function while allowing growth of the kitten without restriction of chest wall development. Herniation of fat through the caval hiatus was diagnosed 29 months postoperatively on a CT scan. The cat was free of clinical signs.

Once implanted, Vetrix acts as a net or magnet for naturally circulating stem cells. These stem cells have the potential to become all types of tissue within the body; they simply need the correct signals to differentiate. Currently, injuries scar and leave the body with a desert-like environment where cells cannot flourish. Vetrix provides a fertile environment where they may receive proper signaling from the surrounding environment. This environment, that is Vetrix, uses these cells to completely remodel the damaged site.

With Vetrix, veterinarians all over can regenerate an animal’s injury to healthy, organized tissue. From skin to intestinal tissue to muscular reconstruction, Vetrix enables a patient to fully heal itself using its natural healing mechanisms.

The History of Vetrix

Before there was VETRIX, the use of extracellular matrix (ECM) has widely infiltrated the human field of medicine. Vetrix ECM BioscaffoldsmallOriginally developed at Purdue University, a team of researchers discovered the regenerative capabilities of small intestinal submucosa (SIS) ECM as a material able to fully regrow tissue of various kinds. As the team of scientists imagined the possibilities of regenerative medicine, the rights to SIS were farmed to various companies throughout the human medical industry. To one company the cardiovascular rights were granted, to another SIS was given for use to treat burn and dermatologic patients, and still to another, Cook Biotech, the material has essentially been adopted as the standard of care for hernia repair. As the various applications were researched for human implications, there was a void in veterinary medicine. While the FDA requires animal clinical testing prior to human use, all applications for SIS ECM were proven through published studies in various journals of medicine. Built upon the shoulders of proven research, VETRIX was born. Today VETRIX serves as the gold standard in veterinary regenerative medicine, offering the most scientifically proven biological scaffold on the market.
VETRIX harnesses the natural capabilities of the patients existing stem cells, to fully migrate into the biological scaffold. Once the patients native stem cells have migrated into the VETRIX bioscaffold, the cells lay down collagen which, in turn, share signals to differentiate the cells into the appropriate tissue. With this site specific healing capability, VETRIX can fully regenerate tissue ranging from skin, muscular defects, intestinal lining and others. Even a damaged cornea can be fully restored using VETRIX Ocular Discs.

Fixing Heart Defects In Children Using SIS Extracellular Matrix

Vetrix SIS Extracellular Matrix material is used far and wide within the human medical field. Vetrix uses the same technology to regenerate tissue in the veterinary medical field. While this technology has the capability to regenerate heart valves, in the veterinary field, Vetrix is used from everything involving dermal injuries to internal soft tissue reconstruction.

Medical-biomaterial-company CorMatrix Cardiovascular, based in Georgia, had developed an extracellular matrix material, a collagen framework that cells could attach to and hold the organs together.  It has the structure, shape, and signaling properties to attract stem cells.  “If you put this sub-mucosal tissue anywhere in the body, it functions like a fisherman’s net.  It captures stem cells flowing through the bloodstream right where you want them. It’s like having the framework of a house that can actually recruit all the bricks and wood need to create a perfect house,” Redmond Paul Burke, MD, Chief, Division of Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery at Miami Children’s Hospital, was quoted as saying.  The stem cells that are captured morph into the tissue needed for the malfunctioning organ to work properly.

See the video of a young girl who’s life was changed when a new heart valve was fashioned using only extracellular matrix.

Injured Bald Eagle Healed Using Vetrix ECM

Rehabilitated Bald Eagle Released by UC Davis

Woodland Daily DemocratBald Eagle

August 30, 2013

An adult bald eagle brought to the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine will be released back into the wild near Redding today. The eagle will be released by Bret Stedman, manager of the California Raptor Center, at 11 a.m. near the city’s Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay Exploration Park. Stedman will put on leather gloves, remove the eagle from its enclosure and hold it before tossing it into the air for release. “To treat the eagle, UCD veterinarians worked with Cook Medical, which donated a device known as Small Intestinal Submucosa Extracellular Matrix that was used to heal the eagle’s flesh wounds that accompanied its fractures,” said UCD’s Rob Warren in a statement.

Science Network Article Explains How Extracellular Matrix Is Key To Healing

Researchers at Curtin University in Australia are confirming the science behind Vetrix, and how extracellular matrix, or ECM, helps stimulate tissue regeneration. Vetrix ECM, creates an environment in which native stem cells can regenerate damaged tissue.

Over the years, scientists and doctors alike have been trying to make stem cells work to regenerate damaged tissue. It is true that stem cells have incredible capabilities, but the key is the environment around these cells. An example that we use here at Vetrix is the analogy of an acorn and an oak tree. If you take an acorn and place it on a slab of pavement, the environment does not allow the acorn to naturally respond to grow an oak tree. You can place thousands of acorns on that slab of pavement, but you will still not be able to effectively grow an oak tree. Now, imagine taking an acorn and placing it into fertile soil. The environment that the soil provides triggers natural mechanisms within the acorn to spawn a tree. This is the same movement that Vetrix provides. The body already has stem cells circulating throughout the blood stream. The acorns are already there. We simply provide an environment for these cells to flourish and regenerate damaged tissue.
