Absorbable Hemostatic Gelatin Sterile Sponge USP
PREVASPONGE is manufactured from highly purified first-extract grade collagen material.
It can be used in a wide range of surgical procedures, especially when traditional hemostatic measures are irrelevant, or cannot result in an appropriate manner.
PREVASPONGE is manufactured from hydrolyzed collagen (gelatin) this pharmaceutical gelatin effectively helps the wound to stop bleeding.
In addition to serving as a mechanical obstruction to bleeding, PREVASPONGE affects the coagulation process.
The sponges may be used in combination with antibiotics, Thrombin, and chemotherapeutics without reduction of the sponge’s hemostatic effect.
PREVASPONGE may be used either dry or moist having the same effect.
How it Works
PREVASPONGE has a porous structure that activates the thrombocytes at the moment when blood comes in contact with the matrix of the sponge.
The thrombocytes have an immediate response reaction which stimulates their aggregation.
They begin to act as a catalyst and change the surface character for the formation of new fibrin.
PREVASPONGE may be left at the bleeding site, when necessary.
It absorbs the wound secretions and effectively helps the wound to start healing.
