Functional description

Veritas Collagen Matrix is an implantable biological mesh comprised of non-crosslinked bovine

pericardium which allows for neo-collagen formation and neo-vascularization of the implanted

device and permits replacement of the device with host tissue, or remodeling. Veritas Collagen

Matrix also minimizes tissue attachment to the device in case of direct contact with viscera.

Intended purpose

Veritas Collagen Matrix is intended for use as an implant for the surgical repair of soft tissue deficiencies:

abdominal and thoracic wall repair, muscle flap reinforcement, and repair of hernias (e.g., diaphragmatic,

femoral, incisional, inguinal, lumbar, paracolostomy, scrotal, umbilical). Veritas Collagen Matrix minimizes

tissue attachment to the device in case of direct contact with viscera.
