The analysis of the biomechanical properties of collagen membranes

This study evaluates the properties of different commercially available resorbable collagen membranes for guided bone regeneration, upon addition of plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF). The structural and morphological details, mechanical properties, and enzymatic degradation were investigated in a new approach, providing clinicians with new data in order to help them in a successful comparison and better selection of membranes with respect to their placement and working condition. Particular characteristics such as porosity, fiber density, and surface topography may influence the mechanical behavior and performances of the membranes, as revealed by SEM/AFM and nanoindentation measurements. The mechanical properties and enzymatic degradation of the membranes were analyzed in a comparative manner, before and after PRGF-modification. The changes in Young modulus values are correlated with the ultrastructural properties of each membrane type. The enzymatic (trypsin) degradation test also emphasized that PRGF-modified membranes exhibit a slower degradation compared to the native ones.
