Healing Potential of Amniotic Membranes

The Healing Potential of Amniotic Membranes

Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes are a safe, effective treatment for a variety of eye injuries and other conditions. This potentially practice-changing tissue has the ability to boost your quality of care, emergency responsiveness, patient satisfaction, and practice revenue.

Tissue grafts are well known for their ability to promote rapid healing in victims of burns and other injuries. Amniotic membranes (AMs) have long been used to treat a variety of eye injuries and corneal conditions. With better and more numerous options available, they’re quickly becoming more popular throughout the eye care community.

A Superior Solution for Eye Injury Treatment

Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes are collected from the innermost layer of the placenta, and are procured from a strictly-vetted, single donor following a pre-scheduled C-section procedure. This means that the membranes you place on the eye have histocompatibility antigens and are universally tolerated, making for a faster and more comfortable treatment with fewer risks.

These membranes have anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties and promote epithelial growth, meaning that they don’t just act as bandages — they promote healing.

AMs Can Be Used to Treat a Variety of Eye Conditions

A unique thing about amniotic membranes is how broadly they can be used, allowing you to customize the ways in which you use them to the focuses of your practice. Here are just a few of the conditions that AMs have been used effectively to treat in the past:

  • Bullous keratopathy
  • Chemical or physical burns to the eye
  • Conjunctival reconstruction
  • Corneal degeneration
  • Corneal ulcers/Neurotrophic keratitis
  • Dystrophy
  • Epithelial abrasions, defects, and erosion
  • Keratitis
  • Limbal stem cell deficiency
  • Neurotropic ulcers
  • Post-keratoplasty
  • Pterygium
  • Severe dry eye
  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome/Lyell’s syndrome
  • Stromal ulcerations

Benefits of Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes

The Benefits of Using Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes

For years, frozen (cryo-preserved) amniotic membranes have been standard for doctors who use AMs to treat patients; however, the industry has improved upon AM treatments to produce another solution with its own set of benefits.

Frozen membranes can be effective, but they come with some significant drawbacks. They’re costly, difficult to store (-80 degrees), and they don’t have a very long shelf life, even when stored correctly. Since most cases in which AMs are used are emergencies, it’s difficult to pre-order them. It can be difficult to keep them stocked without wasting expensive frozen tissue.

Additionally, some patients find treatment using frozen membranes to be extremely uncomfortable — and in some cases, completely intolerable — due to the ring that must be placed in the eye during treatment with a conventional frozen AM.

Here are a few of the benefits of using dehydrated membranes in your practice, either as your sole method of AM treatment or in combination with frozen membranes.

Save Money & Maximize Profits

One frozen amniotic membrane can cost upwards of $700, much more expensive than a single dehydrated membrane.

The potential for boosted revenue with Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes is enormous. The average Medicare allowable reimbursement is $1,400 and if a case needs more than one application, AM treatment is subject to a zero-day global, meaning there is no “waiting period” if additional reimbursable treatments are needed.

Convenient Storage Options

Many practitioners are familiar with the potential of amniotic membranes, but may not adopt AM treatment in their practice because of the difficulties (and waste) associated with long-term storage. But dehydrated amniotic membranes don’t require special storage conditions. They can be placed nearly anywhere within your practice. Since they don’t contain live cells, the shelf-life of dehydrated amniotic membranes is far greater than that of frozen membranes.

Perform Quick, Effective Treatments

In the case of an eye care emergency, speed is often essential, which is why so many doctors appreciate that dehydrated AMs can be applied so quickly and easily to the eye. Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes are bi-directional, so the treatment can be applied regardless of the membrane’s orientation.

Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes come in two different sizes: 9mm and 12mm disks. The 9mm disks adhere to a bandage lens, which can be easily applied to the eye. The slightly larger 12mm disks are typically placed directly on the eye and the bandage lens is placed subsequently. These size and application variations allow you to customize each patient’s treatment by providing them with an amniotic membrane that meets their specific needs.

Increase Patient Comfort & Satisfaction

The frozen membranes use a ring that’s inserted in the patient’s eye during treatment. While the inner membrane is absorbed in a few days’ time, the ring remains and must be removed later by the doctor. Dehydrated membranes don’t contain a ring, making it more tolerable for patients.

Triad Dehydrated Amniotic Membranes simplify providing your patients with superior medical treatment and better your practice eye health emergencies. I’d love to speak with you more about the potential of amniotic membranes and how they can instantly improve your ability to treat more patients and drive more revenue.
