Indications & Application
Hypro-Sorb® F is a bilayer collagen membrane for application in dental surgery and in GTR/GBR (Guided Tissue Regeneration/Guided Bone Regeneration).
Due to the hydrophilic property the membrane shows an easy handling as well as a perfect adaptation to the defect. The arrangement of the collagen fibers results in a great tensile strength and resistance to tearing. Therefore the membrane can be held in position by sutures or pins.
- Segmental growing of alveolar tissue
- Sinus floor elevation
- Resection of root upper part
- Filling of the alveolus after resections in prosthetic surgical practice
- Peri implant defects
- Maxillofacial surgery

Application of Hypro-Sorb® F
- Hypro-Sorb® F is trimmed to the desired size using scissors
- Membrane should overlap the walls of the defect by at least 2-3 mm in order to achieve complete coverage of the bone and thus to prevent a lateral ingrowth of gingival tissue
- Defect cavity is filled with a bone substitute material
- Hypro- Sorb®-F-is applied over the defect with it's smooth side to the gingival tissue and the rough side to the bone defect and held in place with moderate pressure. The saturation of the membrane with blood permits perfect adaptation to the bone surface. Additional stabilisation by disposition of pins may be indicated for complex defects.
- The flaps are sutured over the Membrane closely and free of tension (e. g. using single sutures, mattress sutures). The wound should, whenever possible, be completely closed.
- During the healing phase stress in the wound area stem from prosthetic pressure or palpation should be avoided. Intensive mechanical oral hygiene should be replaced by antibacterial rinsing for the first 3 weeks. Antibiotic therapy is prescribed at the discretion of the clinician.
