BACKGROUND Collagen barrier membranes are commonly applied in periodontal and bone-regenerative procedures. Membranes differ in their resorption pattern following implantation, thus influencing clinical outcome. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the biodegradation of three different commercially available collagen membranes. METHODS Collagen membranes were cut into 5-mm-diameter disks and labeled with aminohexanoyl-biotin-N-hydroxy-succinimide ester. One membrane disk…

Effect of systemic tetracycline on the degradation of tetracycline-impregnated bilayered collagen membranes: an animal study.

Immersion of collagen membranes in TTC solution prior to their implantation and systemic administration of TTC significantly decreased the membranes' degradation, indicating possible alternatives to reduce the biodegradation of native collagen membranes.

In vivo degradation of collagen barrier membranes exposed to the oral cavity.

Marked differences in membrane integrity were found between the three tested membranes after 10 days in the oral cavity, and these differences may be part of the important factors determining the outcome of the regenerative treatment modality in cases of premature membrane exposure.

The Role of Two Different Collagen Membranes for Dehiscence Defect Around Implants in Humans.

The authors concluded the success of guided bone regeneration was performed simultaneously for dehiscence defects around the implant, regardless whether collagen membranes were cross-linked or noncross-linked.

The efficacy of a double-layer collagen membrane technique for overlaying block grafts in a rabbit calvarium model.

It is demonstrated that the collagen membrane used here can reduce graft bone resorption and the double-layer technique using non-cross-linked collagen membranes (BioGide((R))) can enhance the efficacy of the onlay block bone graft technique in terms of both bone res orption and augmentation compared with a single-layer collagen membrane.

Differences in degradation behavior of two non-cross-linked collagen barrier membranes: an in vitro and in vivo study.

After 20 weeks, the thickness of RX decreased only slightly, whereas BG showed a thickness loss of around 50% and stronger degradation than RX, which was confirmed in the animal study.

Guided bone regeneration produced by new mineralized and reticulated collagen membranes in critical-sized rat calvarial defects

No significant difference was found among the groups regarding myeloperoxidase activity and interleukin 1beta levels, although the GA, 25GA, and 75GA groups presented decreased levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha compared with the control group.

Degradation pattern of a porcine collagen membrane in an in vivo model of guided bone regeneration

The collagen membrane investigated was biocompatible and able to promote bone regeneration, however, pronounced signs of degradation were observed starting from day 30, and the suitability of collagen membranes in cases where long-lasting barriers are needed needs to be further reviewed.

Comparative In Vivo Analysis of the Integration Behavior and Immune Response of Collagen-Based Dental Barrier Membranes for Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR)

It can be concluded that the sugar crosslinked collagen membrane may be suitable for application in GBR as a biomaterial with exclusive barrier functionality, similar to non-resorbable options.

Biodegradation pattern and tissue integration of native and cross-linked porcine collagen soft tissue augmentation matrices – an experimental study in the rat

It was concluded that ethylene dioxide seems to be not suitable for stabilization of collagen matrices for soft tissue augmentation procedures, and native dermal Type I and III collagen showed an increased inflammatory response and compromised tissue integration.



Membrane durability and tissue response of different bioresorbable barrier membranes: a histologic study in the rabbit calvarium.

All collagen membranes showed similar tissue integration characterized by fibrous encapsulation with differentiation of a periosteumlike tissue upon the external bony surface and one prototype collagen membrane displayed clearly longer membrane integrity.

Regeneration of rat calvarial defects using a bioabsorbable membrane technique: influence of collagen cross-linking.

The results showed that augmenting the degree of collagen cross-linking diminished the membrane resorption rate, and the efficacy of collagen membranes in guiding bone regeneration, as well as the importance of the type and degree of cross- linking.

Tetracycline impregnation delays collagen membrane degradation in vivo.

Soaking collagen membranes in 50 mg/ml TCN solution is a useful, practical, and simple tool to slow membrane degradation.

New attachment formation following controlled tissue regeneration using biodegradable membranes.

The results suggest that the establishment of a connective tissue attachment is clearly favored by the placement of a polylactic acid membrane to exclude the epithelium and gingival connectives tissue during healing.

Collagen membranes: a review.

The use of grafting material in combination with collagen membranes seems to improve clinical outcomes for furcation, but not intrabony, defects when compared to the use of membranes alone, and the properties that make collagen membranes attractive for use in regenerative therapy will be addressed.

The effect of a deproteinized bovine bone mineral on bone regeneration around titanium dental implants.

Testing of the effect of a deproteinized bovine bone mineral (Bio-Oss) on guided bone regeneration (GBR) in dehiscence defects around implants found it exhibited osteoconductive properties and hence can be recommended for GBR procedures in deHiscence defect procedures with respect to horizontal growth of bone.

Partial regeneration of periodontal tissues using collagen barriers. Initial observations in the canine.

Collagen membranes have the capacity to support regeneration of periodontal tissues and collagen membranes are either incorporated within the healing tissues or degraded by these during the healing process, suggesting that collagen membranes may be of value in reconstructive periodontAL therapy.

Observations on a new collagen barrier membrane in 16 consecutively treated patients. Clinical and histological findings.

In cases of membrane exposure, gingival dehiscences always disappeared in the following weeks without affecting the healing process, and Histologic results showed barrier stability over a 6-month period, promoting bone regeneration.
