Cytoflex® Tefguard® is a non-resorbable membrane for use as a space-making barrier in guided tissue regeneration procedures. Composed of a proprietary micro-porous polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) thin film, Cytoflex® Tefguard® has a surface texture and porosity suitable for adhesion of host cells to the material while blocking passage and integration of bacteria within the interstices of the material. The supple membrane conforms easily to tissue contours, and yet offers sufficient stiffness to maintain a space over the bony defect.
Composed of a proprietary micro-porous polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), the textured version of Cytoflex® Tefguard® has superficial macro texture overlapping the micro pore texture on both surfaces. The cellular level micro texture is invisible to the naked eye, but can be seen at high magnifications. The macro texture provides additional grips for flap attachment
The micro porous surface is designed to improve flap attachment but prevent tissue and bacteria ingrowth. Cytoflex® Tefguard® is for use as a barrier membrane for guided tissue regeneration procedures.
Excellent handling and rigidity
Easily retrieved as one piece
Resists fibroblasts and bacteria penetration
Better tissue attachment with fewer flap dehiscenes
Facilitates tissue regeneration despite flap recessions, or incomplete primary closure
