Avance Nerve Allograft
Avance nerve allograft (AxoGen) is a human nerve allograft that is processed to remove cells while preserving the connective tissue structure. The tissue structure of human nerve is retained throughout processing, so recovering nerve is able to regenerate across existing structural elements.
Avance allografts are used in nerve repair to bridge a gap when direct repair is not possible, or when there is tension when the cut ends are approximated. They are available in various lengths and diameters to conform to various gap lengths and injured nerve sizes.
