Immediately prior to use: remove and discard the protective plastic sheeting from both sides of the device using aseptic technique. Do not allow implant to dry out prior to implantation. Tension should be avoided if suturing the SYNTHECEL Dura Repair. Ensure the edges of the implant are not folded. SYNTHECEL Dura Repair should be used with caution in restricted areas of the skull, (e.g., posterior fossa) due to the potential for local mass effect.
