AxoGuard Registered trademark Nerve Protector
Wrap And Protect
 
 

AxoGuard® Nerve Protector is an implant that provides protection for peripheral nerves. It is designed to protect and isolate the nerve during the healing process after surgery. AxoGuard® is a multi-laminar extracellular matrix that separates and protects the nerve from the surrounding tissues during the healing process. The patient's own cells incorporate into the extracellular matrix to remodel and form a tissue similar to the nerve epineurium. AxoGuard® Nerve Protector is provided sterile, for single use only, and in a variety of sizes to meet the surgeon’s needs.

AxoGuard® Nerve Protector can be used to:
  • Wrap injured nerves up to 40 mm;
  • Minimize risk of entrapment in compressed nerves;
  • Protect partially severed nerves; and

  • Reinforce a coaptation site.
