MTF Biologics Launches Large FlexHD Pliable Perforated for Pre-Pectoral Breast Reconstruction



EDISON, N.J., Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MTF Biologics is unveiling its latest innovation in breast reconstruction: a new, larger size of its FlexHD Pliable Perforated acellular dermal matrix (ADM). Created in response to requests from plastic surgeons, the ADM is designed for use in pre-pectoral breast reconstruction. The larger FlexHD Pliable will be introduced at Plastic Surgery The Meeting, which is taking place October 6-10, 2017, in Orlando, Fla.

"FlexHD Pliable was designed exclusively for breast reconstruction in partnership with plastic surgeons and has been continuously refined to meet their needs," said Tom Shaffer, Executive Vice-President, Global Sales & Marketing at MTF Biologics. "This new option, the largest ADM for breast reconstruction, was created specifically for the growing number of surgeons performing pre-pectoral breast reconstruction procedures. It is an example of MTF Biologics' commitment to the surgeons and patients we serve and our dedication to innovation that saves and heals lives."

FlexHD Pliable is the most innovative ADM available. It reflects MTF Biologics' three-decade legacy of driving advances in the science of tissue transplantation. It is the only ADM that uses MTF Biologics' patented deep-cut method. This method takes donated tissue from deep in the dermis, creating an ADM with consistent thickness and no sidedness that enables easier cell adhesion and incorporation. FlexHD Pliable also is elastic, pliable and conformable, with exceptional handling in the operating room. 

A driver of new standards in breast reconstruction, FlexHD was the first prehydrated ADM, making it a more convenient choice for surgeons. It also was the first ADM available in bi-lateral breast kits from the same donor in the same thickness, which may reduce complication risks for patients.  

FlexHD Pliable has been proven safe and effective for breast reconstruction and receives high patient satisfaction ratings. Published studies have shown that it has a low complication rate for issues such as infection, seroma, reconstruction failure, hematoma, and delayed wound healing that is on par with or better than other ADMs on the market.

The large FlexHD Pliable Perforated ADM will be shown at MTF Biologics' booth, #301, at Plastic Surgery The Meeting.  It also will be discussed at the Satellite Symposium, "Building a Better Breast Through Innovative Pre-Pectoral Techniques," with Dr. Garrett Wirth and Dr. Aldona Spiegel on Saturday, October 7, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Orange County Convention Center, S. Concourse, Destination Lounge.
