I’m curious to get readers opinions on Amnion-chorion membrane. What has been your experience with these membranes, positive or negative? Which types of cases are using these on?
Paul R comments:The theory behind them is good...I used a few of them...not too user friendly. I cannot say I saw significant results over other membranes
Lucky Universe comments:I've been using BioXclude for the last 3 years and have been happy with the results. Especially in augmentation cases where I can't achieve primary closure. I feel confident to leave it exposed in the oral cavity. Recently I used it as a post-extraction dressing over the mesiobucccal root area of a very deep impacted 3rd molar. Patient feedback was very encouraging.
envoy comments:Amnion membranes handle quite differently that the collagen membranes most clinicians are used to. Once more dentists are trained on them, I think they will become quite popular as the results are fantastic.
osseonews comments:Interesting comments. Amnion membranes are certainly different in terms of handling.
