Vitasure Absorbable Hemostat has been shown to safely and effectively enhance normal clotting reactions to create a stable hemostatic plug. Comprised of many powerful polysaccharide spheres, this unique, biocompatible material is derived from purified plant starch. As such, it is non-toxic, non-irritating, non-hemolytic, and non-immunogenic and is absorbed in 24 to 48 hours. When applied directly to the source of bleeding, the Vitasure spheres begin working on contact and can achieve complete hemostasis within minutes.1 The flowable particles allow for complete coverage on rough surfaces and in small, hard to reach spaces. Packaged within a bellows applicator, there is no preparation required with Vitasure; just open and apply.
Features & Benefits
Vitasure is indicated in surgical procedures (other than in neurosurgical and ophthalmic) as an adjunctive hemostatic device to assist when control of capillary, venous, and arteriolar bleeding by pressure, ligature and other conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical.
