We offer two nerve guides, NEUROLAC® and NEUROLAC® Thin Wall (TW), which are indicated for reconstruction of peripheral nerve discontinuities of up to 20 mm, typically in the hand and wrist. NEUROLAC® Thin Wall (TW) features a reduced wall thickness to facilitate handling and needle penetration if required. An additional application of NEUROLAC®, NEUROLAC WRAP® is currently being investigated.
Our devices guide and protect nerves as they regenerate from the proximal stump towards the distal, preventing neuroma formation and ingrowth of fibrous tissue to the nerve gap. Such tensionless nerve repair improves healing and function recovery without the need for autologous transplants, reducing operation times and potential for donor site morbidity.
NEUROLAC® and NEUROLAC® TW are fully synthetic, biologically safe and non-immunogenic. They are flexible, allowing easy and comfortable suturing and improving patient comfort, and have sufficient mechanical strength to resist kinking and collapse, enabling early flexion of joints. They are also completely transparent to allow for efficient nerve stump positioning and early observation of blood clots.
