What is Novosorb MTX?
Synthetic Monolayer Dermal Matrix
NovoSorb® MTX equips clinicians with a flexible reconstructive tool for the treatment of varying complex wounds. Leveraging from tried and tested technology, NovoSorb MTX is designed to reliably facilitate a reinforced dermal bed with a one- or two-stage reconstruction.
Breakthrough in Regenerative Medicine
The aftermath of the 2002 Bali terrorist attack drove the need for an improved dermal matrix that would perform reliably should another catastrophic event occur. This surgeon-led effort resulted in a regenerative medicine breakthrough that became the birth of our flagship technology, NovoSorb®, and the establishment of the world’s first synthetic dermal matrix, NovoSorb BTM.
The subsequent clinical outcomes achieved in the hands of surgeons across the globe leaves PolyNovo® responsible for expanding this first-of-its-kind technology with other product offerings to continue providing patients with worldwide access to safe, effective, and reliable solutions.
NovoSorb MTX is a highly porous synthetic dermal matrix designed to facilitate rapid tissue growth for the reconstruction of complex surgical, traumatic, or irregular wounds. Wound closure may be achieved in a one- or two-stage reconstruction (e.g., re-epithelialization, subsequent skin graft).
• Fully synthetic that does not contain biologic material
for bacteria to metabolize
• Supports rapid cellular infiltration and tissue integration
• Ready straight from the package with a three-year shelf-life
• One- or two-stage wound closure
• Designed to convert a macro-wound into interconnected
micro-wounds for organized healing
• Highly conformable, making it ideal for irregular anatomic areas
• Partial and full thickness wounds
• Pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, chronic, and vascular ulcers
• Surgical wounds (donor sites/grafts, post-Moh’s surgery, post-laser surgery, podiatric, and wound dehiscence)
• Trauma wounds (abrasions, lacerations, partial thickness burns, and skin tears)
• Draining wounds
