Human fibrinogen, human thrombin, composite patch (PG910 (VICRYL) and ORC)
EVARREST® is a fibrin sealant patch indicated for use with manual compression as an adjunct to hemostasis in adult patients undergoing surgery, when control of bleeding by conventional surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature, and cautery) is ineffective or impractical.
After appropriate application and manual compression for 3 minutes, blood passes through the patch, rather than pooling beneath it. Activation of fibrinogen and thrombin results in clot formation at the bleeding surface and within the patch. Adhesive strength forms a physical seal with tissue and maintains a flexible barrier to bleeding.
