Biological and synthetic dura substitutes
Dura substitutes are used to cover holes in the cerebral / cerebellar and spinal dura mater to restore a liquid-tight closure after neurosurgical interventions with dural incision. Aesculap offers three different dura substitutes: Lyoplant® Onlay, Lyoplant® and Neuro-Patch®. The high liquid-tightness of these implants supports the prevention of CSF leakage in neurosurgery. Lyoplant® Onlay is an Onlay dura substitute of bovine origin and enables a fast, easy and versatile application and a reliable treatment. Lyoplant® is a biological suturable dura substitute and Neuro-Patch® is a synthetic suturable dura substitute.
