Tissue treatment with 100% aldehyde free technology
Velum® is part of the new generation of Labcor products, preserved by the exclusive L-Hydro® technology. This new preservation process presents the recipient organism with a non-cellular matrix very similar to native tissue. In addition, it allows cell growth to be carried out under the conditions in which the tissue would perform its functions.

- Pulmonary Stenosis;
- Pulmonary Atresia;
- Tetralogy of Fallot;
- Truncus Arteriosus;
- Transposition with intraventricular communication.
Also indicated for replacement of homologous conduits or valved conduits previously implanted not functioning.
