Biological, suturable dura substitution

Lyoplant® is a pure collagen implant that is produced from lyophilized bovine pericardium. It is a functional, tearproof and absorbable dura substitute.


  • High liquid tightness of the implant prevents CSF leakages [1]
  • Tissue tolerant [2,3]
  • High tensile strength of the implant prevents suture pull out [3,4]
  • Good suturability [1,4]
  • Adaptable to anatomical structures [1,5]


Lyoplant® is indicated for the replacement and extension of connective tissue structure in neurosurgery.
