SPONGOSTAN™ Powder, MS0008
SPONGOSTAN™ Absorbable Haemostatic Gelatin Powder is a sterile, water-insoluble, porcine gelatin absorbable powder intended for haemostatic use by applying to a bleeding surface. The powder is off-white in appearance. It is for use only by healthcare professionals who are trained in the surgical procedures and techniques requiring the use of this haemostatic device.
SPONGOSTAN™ Powder has haemostatic properties. When the mixed SPONGOSTAN™ Powder comes in contact with blood, the Powder provides an environment for platelets to adhere and aggregate triggering the patient’s natural coagulation cascade.
SPONGOSTAN™ Powder, saturated with sterile sodium chloride solution, is indicated for surgical procedures (except ophthalmic) for haemostasis, when control of capillary bleeding, oozing bleeding, venous and arteriolar bleeding by pressure, ligature and other conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical. Although not necessary, SPONGOSTAN™ Powder can be used with thrombin to achieve haemostasis†.
†Note: The use of thrombin is not covered by the EC certification and the H.S.A. approval of SPONGOSTAN™ Absorbable Haemostatic Gelatin Powder.
