In a study titled “Macrophage phenotype as a predictor of constructive remodeling following the implantation of biologically derived surgical mesh materials,” published by researchers from the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, it was found that out of fourteen extracellular matrices that were compared to determine which was the most effective, ACell’s MatriStem medical devices have the best response for constructive remodeling.
As opposed to the healing process of scarring, which is the typical physical response to any injury that produces harder tissue that does not have nerves or a blood supply, constructive remodeling creates new tissue that is appropriate for the injured area. This method of treatment and healing is considered optimal as it reproduces healthy tissue that is most similar to the tissue that was damaged.
In the Des Moines area, Dr Bergman’s team is the only medical team to use this method of reconstructive surgery.
