Provide safer, effective primary and secondary peripheral nerve repair and reconstruction with the GEM Neurotube from Synovis MCA. It's a single-use, absorbable woven polyglycolic acid mesh designed to replace and improve upon the traditional nerve graft technique for gap repair. Corrugated walls deliver strength and permeability while preventing the tube from collapsing under normal physiological soft tissue pressures. Impressive flexibility easily accommodates joint and associated tendon gliding movements. Neurotube resorbs in eight months; no need for removal. Since Neurotube is synthetic instead of a graft, there's no donor-site morbidity. There's no hydration required prior to use and no special storage requirements; shelf life up to five years.
