Available in solid and 2:1 meshed configuration, Revize/Revize-X Collagen Matrix are derived from fetal bovine dermis which contains high levels of Type III collagen. Per the company, Revize/Revize-X will aid in implanting and strengthening weak soft tissue along with surgical repairing of damaged or ruptured soft tissue membranes.

In the same month, the company announced the European launch of Dermal Regeneration Template Single Layer "Thin" for dermal repair defects reconstruction through a "one-step" procedure.

Interestingly, the company’s Orthopedics and Tissue Technologies segment accounted for 43.3% of the company’s total revenues in the last reported quarter. The latest launch is expected to boost the segment’scontribution.

Integra’s efforts to grow in the plastic and reconstructive surgery market seem to be strategic as per Technavio data published in Business Wire. Per the report, the global plastic surgery products market is expected to reach a value of around $15 billion, at a CAGR of 9% between 2016 and 2020.

We believe growing consciousness about appearance among individuals, increasing awareness and rising expenditure in healthcare and technological advancements are likely to drive demand for cosmetic surgeries. Thus, the latest launch will help Integra cash in on the opportunities in this niche market.
