BIOVANCE 3L Ocular Pending Review - Verséa


Almost 40% of patients (37.4%) undergoing cataract surgery experienced significant postoperative dry eye.¹

Both incidence and severity of dry eye symptoms increase even further after cataract surgery2. In cataract surgery, Li et al showed that dryness peaks at 1 month¹. There are many factors that might contribute to dryness post cataract surgery:2-5 BAK in drops,3 exposure to intense light,4 and corneal nerve denervation.4-5

Corneal epithelial defects are focal areas of epithelial loss most frequently caused by mechanical trauma, corneal dryness, neurotrophic keratitis, post surgical changes, or infection.10

Amniotic membrane graft applications as a cover or barrier may include, but are not limited to, corneal and conjunctival related injuries or defects such as corneal epithelial defects, pterygium repair, fornix reconstruction and other procedures.

Common diagnoses resulting in or associated with corneal defects include:


Human Amniotic Membrane Allograft

Indications For Use

BIOVANCE 3L Ocular is an allograft intended for use as a biological membrane covering that provides an extracellular matrix. As a barrier membrane, BIOVANCE 3L Ocular is intended to protect the underlying tissue and preserve tissue plane boundaries. Applications include, but are not limited to, corneal and conjunctival related injuries or defects such as corneal epithelial defects, pterygium repair, fornix reconstruction, and other procedures.

BIOVANCE 3L Ocular is a pure human amniotic tissue with an intact basement membrane¹:

  • Devoid of cells, hormones, growth factors and cytokines
  • Retention of natural proteins (e.g. collagen, laminin, fibronectin)
  • Serves as a cell-friendly structure for cell attachment²
  • Cell attachment is a natural stimulus for the orderly release of growth factors and cytokines¹

Designed for Premium Handleability

Biovance® 3L Ocular is a three-layer decellularized, dehydrated, human amniotic membrane.

Cut and assembled as a unique laminated tri-layer design with the stromal side of amniotic membrane on both sides of the scaffold facing out to ensure the correct side interfaces with the ocular surface regardless of the  orientation of the scaffold.

Biovance® 3L Ocular’s three layer design enhances its handling properties, without the need for a ring.

Benchtop Study Findings

BIOVANCE 3L Ocular vs. ChAM & DhAM*

Cell attachment is a natural stimulus for the orderly release of growth factors and cytokines¹.

With its unique 3-layer amnion basement membrane construction, BIOVANCE 3L Ocular is designed for superior handling and creating an optimal matrix for cell viability, adhesion, and proliferation, providing a cell-friendly environment as demonstrated in a comparative benchtop study²’³:

  • Ocular epithelial cell viability significantly greater than ChAM and DhAM (p<0.001)²
  • Ocular epithelial cell adhesion significantly greater as compared to ChAM and DhAM (p≤0.011)²
  • Ocular epithelial cell proliferation rate significantly greater than ChAM (p<0.001)²

* ChAM=cryopreserved human amniotic membrane;  DhAM=dehydrated human amniotic membrane

Visual Comparison of Amniotic Membrane Grafts - Day 4

Ocular epithelial cell viability with Biovance 3L Ocular is significantly greater than ChAM or DhAM at day 4.

Human corneal epitheal cells were seeded on the different scaffolds, cultured, and stained with Calcein AM to visualize viable cells at Day 4 (A). The morphology of human corneal epithelial cells on scaffolds was monitored by actin staining on Day 4 (B).

Post procedure BCVA improved in all patients with an initial BCVA less than 20/25.
