What is Strattice™?
Strattice™ Reconstructive Tissue Matrix (RTM) is a sterile, structurally intact, reconstructive tissue matrix made from porcine skin tissue. Strattice is often referred to as a type of “internal bra,” which holds tissue in place and firmly keeps the implant in place, incorporating itself into a patient’s body tissue in roughly 24 months. As a matrix comprised of the patient’s tissue, it provides a foundation that allows cells to grow inward as breast tissue heals, preventing capsular contracture. It may also be used to provide coverage for the implant to compensate for any lack of breast tissue.
