Our BioSIS products provide a scaffold for native cells to repair the damaged cornea. A naturally occurring matrix, this bioscaffold provides a natural healing environment.
Vetrix® BioSIS ECM Ocular 15mm Discs conveniently come in packages of 4 discs, restoring native tissue to ophthalmic wound sites. After hydration, each disc may be sutured directly to the cornea. Use tack sutures to secure the Ocular Disc to the bulbar conjunctiva, via tarsorrhaphy, or nictitating membrane flap.
“SIS is an inexpensive, easy-to-handle biomaterial that appears to be suitable for the repair of full-thickness corneal wounds in dogs, cats, and horses. Results of our study support the conclusion that this relatively new product is an effective alternative to traditional implantation materials utilized in veterinary ophthalmology.”
