Allograft is typically used to help the recipient regenerate healthy tissue and return to normal function.
This tissue contains active cells that contain regenerative molecules as well as growth factors. The Allograft allows faster and more efficient wound healing.
Allograft tissues have been shown to improve surgical outcomes and wounds by reducing fibrosis, preventing adhesions and providing growth factors that aid the healing process.
