A Simply Remarkable Tissue for ENT / Dental Apllications !

Amnion is the placental tissue that surrounds and protects the fetus during development in utero. The properties of Amnion that benefit teh fetus also make it an effective material for providing barrier protection in a number of surgical settings. Repurposing this versatile tissue to improve surgical outcomes is supported by studies in published literature which describes its successful and safe clinical use.

Amnion consists primarily of fibrillar and membranous collagens, elastin, and a mix of growth factors and cytokines that provide the properties unique to placental tissues.
