Axoguard HA+ Nerve Protector™

Axoguard HA+ Nerve Protector™ (HA+) combines a remodeling extracellular matrix base-layer for long-term protection with a short-term resorbable hyaluronate-alginate gel coating for enhanced nerve gliding and minimization of soft tissue attachments.

innovative protection

  • Resorbing Axogen HA+ gel coating provides short- and long-term protection during the critical period of scar formation.1,2
  • Extracellular matrix layer vascularizes and remodels into the patient’s own new site-specific tissue.1
  • Double-sided Axogen HA+ gel coating to reduce friction and enhance nerve gliding through traumatic tissue beds.
  • Nerve can glide through tissue bed throughout healing without attachment to adjacent soft tissues.2
  • Formulated for optimized handling and flexibility of surgical application—quick hydration, flat sheet configuration and is easy to suture if needed.
