• Conforms to anatomy and maintains surface contact

Indications

AmnioBand® Membrane is processed to maintain the integrity of the matrix with the intent to address the issues of the specific and non-specific inflammatory responses. AmnioBand® Membrane is used as a wound care scaffold for the replacement of damaged or inadequate integumental tissue such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, or for other homologous use. It is intended for single use only.

Contraindications

The presence of severe vascular compromise, active or latent infection or uncontrolled infection may compromise the usefulness of the tissue.

Warnings and Precautions

Do not sterilize. Prescription use only. No known sensitizing agents are present in this tissue. NOTE: No antibiotics were used in the processing of this tissue.

Do not use if container seal is not intact or damaged, if container label or identifying barcode is severely damaged, not legible or missing or if expiration date shown on container label has passed.

AmnioBand® Membrane should be stored at ambient temperature. Do not refrigerate or freeze. It is the responsibility of the transplant facility or clinician to maintain the tissue intended for transplantation in the appropriate recommended storage conditions prior to transplant.

Extensive medical screening procedures have been used in the selection of all tissue donors for the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF) (please see MTF's Donor Screening and Testing document). Transmission of infectious diseases such as HIV or hepatitis, as well as a theoretical risk of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD) agent, may occur in spite of careful donor selection and serological testing.

Adverse Effects/Reactions

Possible adverse effects of using human tissues include but are not limited to: infection of soft tissue and/or bone (osteomyelitis), fever, disease transmission and undesirable immune response.

Storage Requirements

Store at ambient temperature. Do not refrigerate or freeze.

Mode of Use/Application

AmnioBand® Membrane is packaged in a sterilized foil pouch that is designed to be passed directly into the sterile field. Use standard aseptic/sterile technique to open package.
1. Prepare wound area using standard methods to ensure wound is free of debris and necrotic tissue.
2. Peel open chevron seal of outer Tyvek pouch and pass inner foil pouch to sterile field.
3. Peel open chevron seal of inner pouch and remove tissue from inner pouch using sterile gloves/forceps.
4. In a dry state, use sterile dry scissors to trim AmnioBand® Membrane to fit dimensions of application site. It is recommended no more than 0.5mm-2mm overlap over the wound margin.
5. Apply AmnioBand® Membrane directly to patient site. If needed, membrane may be hydrated with sterile saline.
6. Anchor AmnioBand® Membrane with tissue adhesives or by suturing the sheet, ensuring first that graft overlaps adjacent intact skin.
7. Use appropriate, non-adherent, primary dressing and secondary dressing to maintain a moist wound environment and the placement of the tissue.
NOTE: Ensure wound site is free of debris and necrotic tissue. Debride if necessary prior to graft placement. NOTE: Once foil pouch is opened, tissue should be used promptly. The opened innermost pouch alone is not intended for storage of tissue, as it may not provide an adequate moisture or sterile barrier.

Removal & Change Frequency

Dressings covering AmnioBand® Membrane should be changed weekly or as needed.

Additional Recommended Dressings

Primary Dressing: AmnioBand® Membrane should be covered with a non-adherent dressing.

Secondary Dressing: AmnioBand® Membrane requires a moist wound environment. Use appropriate moisture management dressings for the wound type and treatment ideology.

To further encourage healing, patient should be appropriately offloaded following each visit as per institution's standard protocols.
