Presents the results of the spectral analysis using the method of Raman scattering spectroscopy (RS) of dura mater (DM) samples, manufactured by technology “Lioplast” practised in the clinic in the area of atrophic processes at multiple gum recessions. The method of Fourier deconvolution and selection of the spectral profile by the method of least squares is used to increase the resolution and informativity of the spectrum. With the help of mathematical methods of separation of overlapping spectral contours, the main bands corresponding to the main components of the implants were found: amides, proteins, glycosaminoglycans, DNA/RNA. On the basis of the two-dimensional spectral analysis, the coefficients reflecting the composition of the dura mater with different methods of its treatment were introduced. It has been established that Raman spectroscopy can be used to evaluate implants from the dura mater.
