The amniotic membrane (or amnion) is the innermost layer of the placenta that surrounds and provides essential nutrients and immunological protection to the developing fetus. The special composition of cellular components that protect and aid in the development of a baby also provide specific functions that aid in the regeneration and healing process for a wide variety of wounds. Amnion has been used for various types of reconstructive surgical procedures for nearly 100 years, and is now used to treat difficult-to-heal wounds and soft tissue injuries
The extra cellular matrix creates the foundation of the human body’s various tissues. This complex cellular ecosystem contains all of the necessary biologic components to support the cells in proper tissue remodeling and function, including fibrous proteins for structural support and scaffolding; highly regenerative growth factors to assist in modulating inflammation, revascularization, tissue formation, and remodeling.
Degeneration and patient biology can lead to uncontrolled inflammation and poor tissue remodeling, increasing the risks of failure in the healing process of acute and chronic wounds. If a wound becomes infected, it can lead to a loss of limb or life. Injuries can stall in the body’s inflammatory phase.
CellGenuity is driven to improve outcomes for physicians and their patients. AmnioAMP allografts provide a natural scaffold structure along with abundant growth factors. When applied our allograft work to limit the body’s secondary inflammatory response associated with most tissue grafts and to support the body’s proper healing and remodeling process.
