EPICORD® EXPANDABLE is a dehydrated, non-viable cellular human umbilical cord allograft intended for homologous use to provide a protective environment for the healing process.
EPICORD® allografts should not be used on (1) areas with active or latent infection and/or (2) a patient with a disorder that would create an unacceptable risk of post-operative complications.
EPICORD® allografts remain suitable for transplantation in an unopened, undamaged package, under proper storage conditions.
Please inspect the integrity of the package upon receipt. If package and contents appear defective or damaged in any way, immediately contact the distributor.
This allograft is intended for single-patient use only. Discard all unused material.
The procedure should be performed by an authorized medical professional.
Strict donor screening and laboratory testing, along with dedicated processing and sterilization methods, are employed to reduce the risk of any disease transmission. However, as with all biological implants, an absolute guarantee of tissue safety is not possible. This allograft has the potential to transmit infectious disease to the recipient.
The reaction of the body to any biological implant is not completely understood.
Caution should be used when treating patients with a known sensitivity to aminoglycoside antibiotics.
Discard all damaged, mishandled or potentially contaminated tissue.
This product has not been tested in combination with other products.
Do not re-sterilize.
As with any procedure, the possibility of infection exists.
Proprietary processing and validated sterilization methods are employed to eliminate potential deleterious components of the allograft. However, as with all biological implants, the possibility of rejection exists.
Any adverse reactions, including the suspected transmission of disease attributable to this allograft, should be reported immediately to MIMEDX®.
EPICORD® allografts should be stored in a clean, dry environment at room temperature. EPICORD® allografts have a five year shelf life. Check the label for the expiration date.
