Strattice is a type of acellular dermal matrix- basically radiated pig skin which doesn’t contain any actual cells.  It is used in breast surgery to support the breast tissue and/or implants and prevent and treat complications, such as capsular contracture.  I have had really good success with it being used in this capacity.  Strattice is very expensive, however, so I use it sparingly.

The human equivalent (made with cadaver skin) is called Alloderm.  Alloderm is a workhouse for all types of reconstructive surgeries.
