Osgide® is a bioresorbable barrier membrane for use in guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and guided bone regeneration (GBR). The bioresorbable Osgide® membrane is used as protection for bone replacement material to assist bone regeneration for periodontal bone defects and bone augmentation. Osgide® is a highly pure membrane that is manufactured from porcine raw materials under controlled and standardized processes and consists of a fibre network of collagen and elastin.

The membrane creates a protected environment for bone regeneration in the defect area, by presenting a barrier against the migration of soft tissue and assists the ingrowth of osteogenic cells in the bone defect. The fibre network of Osgide® prevents the migration of bone replacement material and provides mechanical stability in the region to be reconstructed.
Benefits of Osgide®
• High therapeutic safety due to reliable barrier function
• Excellent biocompatibility and cell compatibility
• High modelling
• High tensile strength
• Ideal combination with different bone replacement materials
• Simple and reliable application
Osgide® is a bioresorbable membrane so that a second surgical procedure to remove the membrane is not required. The stability compared with degradation is of great importance for reabsorbable membranes. Many studies show that the barrier function is often only guaranteed for a relatively short time for non-cross-linked collagen membranes and can vary widely. For this reason, great importance was attached to reproducible high stability during the development of Osgide® where good tissue integration and vascularisation of the non-cross-linked membrane are preserved. Due to the slowed biodegradation of Osgide®, the barrier function of the membrane is not interrupted prematurely and is preserved for more than 12 weeks.
Osgide® is also safe and easy to handle in a wet state. It is characterized by simple and universal handling and can be cut with scissors or a scalpel to the size of the defect. Depending on the size, several small defects can be treated with one membrane. Due to the high stability, it does not break. It does not stick and ideally adapts to the tissue and bone replacement material used. As a result, you save valuable time!
The use of membranes for bone augmentation
The use of barrier membranes has become the clinical standard for GTR and GBR procedures. To achieve a safe treatment success in bone augmentation, professional societies recommend the use of barrier membranes in combination with bone replacement materials. Scientific studies show that more bone is formed the bone regeneration process and the implant survival rate increases when membranes are used. In the USA, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that suitable membranes are to be used for bone development to prevent the migration of bone replacement materials.
What happens when osgide® is reabsorbed?
Osgide® is initially integrated with the surrounding tissue and resorbed by the body‘s processes. No toxic degradation products are released during this resorption process. It does not result in the release of contaminants such as cross-linked substances or pH value changes that are observed for synthetic polymer membranes.
Is Osgide® chemically cross-linked?
No, chemical cross-linking was entirely dispensed with Osgide®. In the literature, strong chemical cross-linking is associated with an increased incidence of dehiscence.
Is there a risk of confusion of the membrane sides during application?
No, Osgide® has two different sides which can not be confused. The smooth side should be positioned towards the mucosa in order to assist soft tissue healing and to avoid migration in the augmentation (GTR). The rough side facing the bone serves as a guide for the osteoblasts in the GBR and enables rapid development of the bone graft.
Does osgide® has to be rehydrated before using or even washed?
No, Osgide® is very hydrophilic and wets in a few seconds. Osgide® is not cross-linked. For this reason, it does not contain potentially toxic residues that could result from a chemical cross-linking process.
Should osgide® only be combined with certain bone replacement materials?
Osgide® can be combined with all commercially available bone replacement materials and autologous bone. To gain a stable implant location, the combination with Osbone® bone replacement material can be recommended.

The membrane creates a protected environment for bone regeneration in the defect area, by presenting a barrier against the migration of soft tissue and assists the ingrowth of osteogenic cells in the bone defect. The rough side facing the hard tissue acts as guideway of osteoblasts, smooth side facing soft tissue to promote the healing process.
