Efficient & Effective Ways to Manage Lower Extremity Wounds
Two recent retrospective studies, published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by Stephen J. Kovach, M.D., FACS, and John P. Fischer, M.D., MPH, FACS, compared the effectiveness and cost of three modalities commonly used for complex lower extremity reconstruction: Integra® Bilayer Wound Matrix, local tissue rearrangement and free flap.
In this webinar, Drs. Kovach and Fischer present study data as well as their clinical insight and case examples to discuss:
- The correlation between surgical outcomes and specific patient populations
- The impact of cost, operating room time and patient length of stay between each modality

Introducing the Product Performance Pledge, our new guarantee program for soft tissue reconstruction.
At Integra, we value the trust surgeons place in the Integra Dermal Matrix products and our goal is to offer unparalleled support for every case.
To that end, if an Integra Dermal Matrix or PriMatrix product does not incorporate into the wound bed within 21 days of implantation, Integra will replace a sufficient quantity for reapplication at no cost, provided that certain terms and conditions are met.
