The purpose of TSV Gel is to provide mechanical stability to bone substitutes and barrier membranes. TSV Gel is sterilized by Gamma irradiation and is radio-transparent. It contains heterologous type I and III collagen gel with polyunsaturated fatty acids diluted in aqueous solution containing a biocompatible synthetic copolymer that gives TSV Gel thermo-reversible and thermo-gelling properties. At low temperature (4°C) the gel is relatively flowable and easy to mix and manipulate with the graft but it becomes more viscous when in situ and exposed to body temperature.
TSV Gel can be used in GBR procedures together with OsteoBiol® bone substitutes and membranes to enhance graft stability. The viscosity reached by TSV Gel at body temperature improves the stability of Gen-Os® or Apatos granules and has proven particularly beneficial in cases where there is little bony support around the defect i.e. lateral augmentation, sockets with a compromised buccal wall, dehiscences and periodontal two and one wall defects. Additionally, the viscosity of OsteoBiol® TSV Gel improves the stability and handling of Evolution membranes, particularly during the delicate phase of flap closure.
