Bi-Layer Matrix

The choice for aesthetic and functional results in loss of substances

Skin Expertise with a new collagen technology

I

NEVELIA® structure

NEVELIA® is a three-dimensional porous matrix of stabilized bovine origin type I Collagen.

NEVELIA® is made of a specific native collagen with a large fibrous proportion to keep cell adhesion signals and mechanical structure to support regeneration.

In vitro tests demonstrate an optimized colonization as fibroblasts recognize collagen fibers.

Colonization mainly on the surface, few cells, poor collagen neosynthesis

Additional NEVELIA® features are :

  • Optimized pore size3 (average pore size 100 μm) and open-cell structure promoting nutrients flow and fibroblasts migration

  • Crosslinking rate for a balanced absorption / regeneration process
  • No GAG added to keep cells attachment potential

NEVELIA® is composed of medical-grade silicone elastomer reinforced with a polyester material.

NEVELIA® utilizations

NEVELIA® is used for dermal regeneration in skin loss, especially in:

  • Burns surgery (third and deep second degree burns and burns sequelae)
  • Chronic wounds surgery (including leg ulcers and diabetic foot)
  • Traumatology
  • Skin tumors surgery
  • Reconstructive plastic surgery

NEVELIA® can also be used in children.

NEVELIA® is used in combination with a thin split thickness skin graft to recreate skin close to normal skin in terms of function and appearance.

NEVELIA®, an alternative to

  • Skin Expansion (Single or sequential)
  • Flaps (Local, distant, free …)
  • Split-Thickness or Full-Thickness skin autograft
  • Dermal graft (Allografts, Xenografts…)

NEVELIA® dermal regeneration process

Day 0

Contracted Scar - Symatese Aesthetics

Contracted scar

The surgery can be scheduled as soon as the patient is stabilized.

Day 1

Contracted Scar - Symatese Aesthetics

Excision of the wound

All the dead tissue on and around the graft zone must be removed. For the success of NEVELIA® Bi-layer Matrix, all necrotic and scar tissues must be excised down to the viable tissue.

Day 1

Nevelia Bi-Layer Matrix Application - Symatese Aesthetics

NEVELIA® BI-LAYER MATRIX APPLICATION

NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix must be cut to fit the excised wound size exactly. The collagen matrix must be in direct contact with the excised wound. The matrix will be fixed in place with surgical staples or sutures.

Day 1 to 21

Neoderm formation - Symatese Aesthetics

Neoderm formation

The collagen matrix is quickly colonized by the patient’s cells and is gradually replaced by an autologous neoderm.

Day 21+

Removal of the silicone layer - Symatese Aesthetics

REMOVAL OF THE SILICONE LAYER

When the neoderm is formed, the silicone layer is removed. The reconstructed dermis has a distinctive orange-yellow or light yellow colour and may present with slightly reddish areas, sign of a good revascularization.

Day 21+

Harvesting of the graft - Symatese Aesthetics

HARVESTING OF THE GRAFT

A thin split thickness skin graft must be taken, if possible from an area similar in colour to the reconstructed area. It must be removed with dermatome and may be meshed.

Day 21+

Thin Split Thickness Skin Graft - Symatese Aesthetics

THIN SPLIT THICKNESS SKIN GRAFT

The graft is placed on the neoderm and it is fixed with staples or suture.

Day 45+

Regenerated skin - Symatese Aesthetics

REGENERATED SKIN

Epidermization. Complete healing of the wound.

NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix

clinical benefits for specific indications

Burns Surgery Nevelia - Symatese Aesthetics

Burns surgery

  • Waiting donor site availability for extended burns
Chronix Wounds Surgery Nevelia - Symatese Aesthetics

Chronic wounds surgery

  • Good trophicity especially necessary in areas of friction, pressure
  • Adapted to prolonged healing time
Traumatology Nevelia - Symatese Aesthetics

Traumatology

  • Good trophicity especially necessary in areas of friction, pressure
  • Adapted to prolonged healing time to combine other treatments
Skin tumors surgery Nevelia - Symatese Aesthetics

Skin Tumors Surgery

  • Wise choice awaiting anatomopathologist results
  • Facilitates monitoring of cancer recurrence
  • Ease of care for the elderly through faster mobilization

VII

Additional benefits

NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrixcan improve treatment in a number of situations.

  • Immediate availability
  • Efficiency of the surgical technique
  • Creation of a thicker protective tissue and reestablishment of the gliding plan in noble elements coverage like muscles, bones, tendons
  • Better functional and aesthetic results compared to common dermo-epidermal graft
  • No additional scars in traumatology (versus flaps)
  • Reduction risk sequelae of donor site
  • Does not prevent alternative treatments
  • Reduction of hypertrophic scars and keloids occurrence
  • Faster procedure which can be performed in ambulatory room for specific indications (hand, skin tumors)

Children : allows better adaptation of tissue to child growth (less tensions & flanges)

INDICATIONS

NEVELIA® is indicated for dermal regeneration in individuals with skin loss, particularly in the following fields :
– Burns surgery (third and deep second degree burns)
– Reconstructive plastic surgery
– Traumatology
NEVELIA® is used in combination with a thin split thickness skin graft to recreate skin resembling normal skin in terms of function and appearance.

NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix is particularly useful for :
– patients who are unable to supply sufficient donor skin for an autograft at the time of excision

– When the physiological condition of the patient does not allow the autograft

CONTRAINDICATIONS

NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix must not be used in patients presenting with :
– clinical signs of wound infection
– an allergic predisposition or known allergy to bovine collagen or silicone
