Formulated To Control Bleeding & Facilitate Healing Using the Patient's Own Biology

Vitagel Surgical Hemostat is the only product of its kind to combine microbibrillar collagen with thrombin, fibrinogen, and platelets1 . This unique combination of components is formulated to produce a safe and effective hemostat by forming a 3-D scaffold of collagen and fibrin enhanced with activated platelets.

Features & Benefits

Optimized Formulation:

The Vitagel formulation contains four essential components for effective hemostasis, none of which are sourced from pooled human donor, thereby eliminating the risk of viral transmission associated with products containing pooled human donor components.

The Microfibrillar Collagen Advantage2

An Effective Hemostat for Surgery

Proven Blood Management in Primary TKA Surgery

 

Vitagel is indicated in surgical procedures (other than in neurosurgical and ophthalmic) as an adjunct to hemostasis when control of bleeding by ligature or conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical.
