The pericardium barrier membrane
The original collagen structure of porcine pericardium is retained in the BEGO Collagen Membrane. The natural cross-connections of the collagen fibres guarantee excellent compatibility and a long-lasting barrier function. The collagen fibres create a 3D network which gives the BEGO Collagen Membrane its multi-directional stability and suppleness.
The BEGO Collagen Membrane is cell-occlusive, has a smooth side for adaptation of the soft tissue and a rough side as a guiding structure for blood vessels and bone cells.
The BEGO Collagen Membrane boasts a chameleon effect. When dry the pericardium membrane is stable, when wet its properties change and it becomes flexible and supple. The chameleon effect means that the membrane is ideal, for example, for the “stick & flip” technique for lateral augmentations according to PD Dr. Dr. Daniel Rothamel.
