*Methodology: In a full-scale animal (ovine subcutaneous thoracic wall implant) model study designed to measure the strength and thickness
of newly generated native tissue at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months after implantation of SERI® Surgical Scaffold.1
†Methodology: In a study using SERI® Surgical Scaffold in a rat model abdominal wall defect.1
Indications for Use
SERI® Surgical Scaffold is indicated for use as a transitory scaffold for soft tissue support and repair to reinforce deficiencies where
weakness or voids exist that require the addition of material to obtain the desired surgical outcome. This includes reinforcement of soft tissue
in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and general soft tissue reconstruction.

Patients with a known allergy to silk
Contraindicated for direct contact with bowel or viscera where formation of adhesions may occur
SERI® Surgical Scaffold must be placed in maximum possible contact with healthy well-vascularized tissue to encourage ingrowth and tissue remodeling
Caution should be used when implanting SERI® Surgical Scaffold in pregnant women. The use of a device that can impede tissue expansion may be hazardous during pregnancy
