What is ThoraGraft?
ThoraGraft is a multi-functional bone graft technology with a singularly unique patented design. Our proprietary tissue form is implanted between the surgically separated halves of a sternum when the surgeon closes a patient’s chest wound following an open thoracic procedure.
ThoraGraft acts as a bone “gasket” implanted just prior to the surgeon closing the chest wound. Traditionally, postoperative complications associated with this wound and the post-operative challenges it creates frequently are costly and complicated for the patient and the healthcare system.
What Are the Benefits?
ThoraGraft was designed to create a simple and effective solution that dramatically improves patient outcomes by addressing numerous post-operative challenges per the following:
Significantly lessens pain,
Promotes healing and sternal bone fusion,
Reduces time in ICU,
Shortens hospitalizations, and therefore,
Substantially Lowers patient treatment costs for the hospital.
