SURGISPON® Absorbable Hemostatic Gelatin Sponge is a quick and effective hemostatic which stops bleeding fast.
It reduces intra operative bleeding and surgery time. SURGISPON® is non-toxic, non-allergenic, non-immunogenic, and non- pyrogenic. SURGISPON® is already gamma-sterilized, and thus does not need to be resterilized.
It is available in a convenient, ready to tear sterile blister/envelope.
SURGISPON® unlike many haemostatic agents, does not require special storage conditions. The uniform porosity of SURGISPON® guarantees a favourable haemostasis. When implanted in vivo, it is completely absorbed within 3-4 weeks, with no residue and no encapsulation.
How does Surgispon® work?
SURGISPON® adheres to the bleeding site and absorbs approximately 45 times of its own weight of blood. It has a porous structure which activates the thrombocytes at the moment blood comes in contact with the matrix of the sponge. This causes the thrombocytes to release a series of substances which promote their aggregation at the same time as their surfaces change character, thus enabling them to act as a catalyst for the formation of the fibrin, which stops the bleeding. When implanted in the tissues, it is absorbed within 3-4 weeks.
