Product Information



DURA WAVE is an absorbable artificial dural substitute made of PGA (polyglycolic acid) nonwoven fabric, and is used as a prosthetic material for dura mater defects.
By applying DURA WAVE in combination with biological tissue glue, surgeons can perform the operation without suture, easing the burden on the patients.
In the first days after the operation it will act as an substitute of the dura mater.
DURA WAVE gradually degrades by hydrolysis and will be absorbed completely after approximately 15 weeks. As the hydrolyis progresses within the body, the molecular weight & strength of the PGA decreases.
Unlike non-absorbable dural material, when using DURA WAVE there is no risk of reactions to foreign bodies.
