creos xenoprotect - a membrane with outstanding handling that facilitates bone gain.

creos™ xenoprotect

A membrane with outstanding handling1,2 that facilitates bone gain.2-7

A resorbable collagen membrane for guided bone regeneration and guided tissue regeneration procedures.

Why creos xenoprotect?

Implant survival rate and implant success rate are excellent8 with a high percentage of defect fill.4

Active role in regulating bone-healing dynamics in vivo6

In a comparative in vivo study, creos xenoprotect demonstrated significantly higher new bone formation in the central portion of the defect. This increase in bone formation was associated with significantly increased expression of the growth factor Bmp2, which has a strong role in osteogenesis.6

Uneventful wound healing7

Low rates of wound dehiscence and membrane exposure have been reported in clinical studies.2,4,7

Designed to perform with low rates of complications2,4,7


Does not stick to instruments

Repositioning in-situ possible

Low surface expansion when hydrated

Both sides can face the defect


Excellent suture retention

Highly tear-resistant



Manufacturing process intended to preserve the natural structure of the collagen fiber network, to confer a high resistance to degradation

*As shown in an animal model (rat, subcutaneous)


“What I like is that the handling is very easy. The mechanical stability is very high and when it is rehydrated it adapts very well to the underlying bone.”

Facilitates new bone formation2-7

In a randomized controlled clinical trial, 24 patients were treated with creos xenoprotect and 25 with a reference membrane. In the creos xenoprotect group, the defect height reduced at 6-month re-entry by 81%. In the reference membrane group, the defect height reduced at 6-month re-entry by 62%.4

This schematic shows the defect height prior to treatment and 6 months after GBR.

A natural barrier with outstanding handling properties

Composed of a network of interwoven, highly purified porcine collagen and elastin fibers, providing the membrane with high mechanical strength.


“I use the creos xenoprotect membrane combined with creos xenogain particularly in cases of guided bone regeneration. The membrane, stabilized by pins, offers significant strength and stability."
