Mohs

EPIFIX® is a dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane allograft that provides a protective barrier to support the healing cascade.

BENEFITS:

  • Protects the wound bed to aid in the development of granulation tissue
  • Provides a biocompatible human extracellular matrix (ECM)
  • Retains 300+ regulatory proteins1-3
  • Easy to apply
  • 5-year shelf life and room temperature storage

CONSIDER EPIFIX WHEN:

  • Patients are not good candidates for skin grafts or flaps
  • Incisional repair options are limited
  • An advanced therapy is needed for moderate and high-risk Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS) defects in cosmetically sensitive areas

NEW PEER REVIEWED RETROSPECTIVE STUDY IN FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY & AESTHETIC MEDICINE4

This study is the first to compare the outcomes of placental allografts with skin grafts and flaps in the management of complex MMS.

Analysis of several outcomes in case-control comparisons between
autologous flap/FTSG groups and placental-based allografts:

CONCLUSION

Placental-based allografts can be helpful in supporting closure for MMS defects of the face, head, neck, and dorsal hand in a subset of patients who are not good candidates for traditional methods of autologous tissue reconstruction. 

KEY CHALLENGES

Many factors may complicate healing in Mohs procedures and other dermal excisions and closures.
