BIORESORPTION COMPATIBLE WITH THE TISSUE HEALING CASCADE
NeuroShield’s chitosan hydrogel structure supports and protects the underlying nerve structure during soft tissue healing. Over time, the chitosan membrane naturally resorbs, degrading into compounds that may be beneficial for nerve regeneration.1-3
