Your health care provider may perform basic allergy testing to ensure that you have no allergic reaction to the material. Allergic reactions to porcine material are a very rare occurrence.
*Not all wounds will heal, even with an advanced wound matrix such as Geistlich Derma-Gide®. Please work closely with your health care provider to optimize the chance of wound healing.
