Product Information



SEAMDURA is an absorbable artificial dural substitute made of P(LA/CL) (Poly(Llactideaand ε-caprolactone) copolymeric film layered with PGA (Polyglycolic acid) felt to give strength, elasticity and a leak resistant seal.
SEAMDURA is degraded gradually by hydrolysis and is completely absorbed in approximately 8 months.
As SEAMDURA degrades in the body, it's collagen layer is replaced by dural material. Unlike non-absorbable dural material, when using SEAMDURA there is no risk of reactions from foreign bodies.
The three layered structure that combines flexibility and elasticity is effective to close suture holes. Because of the semi-transparency of the product the condition of the brain's surface can still be observed after suturing.
