SURGIFLO® Hemostatic Matrix Kit

SURGIFLO® Hemostatic Matrix with thrombin provides a matrix for platelet adherence, accelerating the formation of the platelet plug and aids in fibrin clot formation.

Economic Benefits

As surgery time increases, so does the value of SURGIFLO® Hemostatic Matrix

The use of a flowable gelatin with thrombin such as SURGIFLO® may reduce surgical blood loss, operating time and hospital length of stay. For an average 4 hour spinal surgery, using SURGIFLO® Hemostatic Matrix with thrombin was associated with cost reduction of $150 per surgery versus Floseal.

Visualization and control

Effective performance and utilization

In blind testing, surgeons prefer the consistency of SURGIFLO® over Floseal®,‡

When compared to Floseal®, the use of SURGIFLO® resulted in preferred product consistency that remains uniformly flowable for 8 hours, quicker and easier preparation, and lower cost.

Improved efficiency

Fast hemostasis with staying power

Designed with a thicker matrix to stay where placed even during active bleedingβ

SURGIFLO® stops bleeding in less than 2 minutes when mixed with thrombin. Its lightweight design allows for optimal control and ease of use, and its applicator allows for precise placement to address bleeding in tight and difficult-to-access sites.

Ease of preparation and safety247,263

SURGIFLO® is faster to prepare versus Floseal and requires no measuring

SURGIFLO® has significantly shorter thrombin reconstitution time versus Floseal (57 seconds vs. 90 seconds), plus a vial adapter designed to eliminate needle sticks. OSHA Guidelines recommend the use of needle-free medical devices to reduce sharp injuries in the surgical setting.262

EVITHROM® Thrombin, Topical (Human) for Topical Use Only

Lyophilized Powder for Solution

EVITHROM® is a topical thrombin indicated as an aid to hemostasis whenever oozing blood and minor bleeding from capillaries and small venules is accessible and control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature or cautery) is ineffective or impractical.

EVITHROM® may be used in conjunction with an Absorbable Gelatin Sponge, USP.

Important Safety Information

  • For topical use only.
  • Do not inject.
  • Apply EVITHROM® on the surface of bleeding tissue only.
  • The amount of EVITHROM® required depends upon the area of tissue to be treated and the method of application. In clinical studies, volumes up to 10 ml were used in conjunction with Absorbable Gelatin Sponge.
  • Do not use for the treatment of severe or brisk arterial bleeding.
  • Do not use in individuals known to have anaphylactic or severe systemic reaction to human blood products. Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, may occur.
  • There is a potential risk of thrombosis if absorbed systemically.
  • May carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents such as viruses and theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent, despite manufacturing steps designed to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
  • The most common adverse reactions during clinical trial (reported in at least 2% of subjects treated with EVITHROM®) were prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time, increased INR, decreased lymphocyte count, prolonged prothrombin time and increased neutrophil count.
  • None of the patients treated with EVITHROM developed antibodies to human thrombin or to human Factor V/Va. The clinical significance of these findings is unknown.

For complete indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse reactions, please reference full package insert.
