Compress made from non-denatured, freeze-dried, resorbable type I native collagen, extracted from calf hides.
Sterile white compress, integrity preserved in a damp atmosphere, allowing the compress to be handled with ease during application.
- HEMOTESE® has a high haemostatic capacity, as the manufacturing process keeps the helicoidal structure of the collagen intact. In its native form, collagen has a specific effect on haemostasis. When collagen comes into contact with platelets, it causes them to cluster and form clots of fibrin.
- HEMOTESE® is a fast-acting local haemostatic. When applied on a haemorrhage site, HEMOTESE® stops blood flow in 2 to 6 minutes depending on the amount of bleeding.
- HEMOTESE® is resorbable. It may be left in situ after bleeding stops if conditions warrant. It is nevertheless recommended that excess compress be removed once haemostasis is complete. Animal studies have shown that HEMOTESE® resorbs in less than 8 weeks.
- HEMOTESE® has good resistance on the haemorrhage site. It is flexible and easily handled.
HEMOTESE® compresses are indicated for local haemostasis during surgical operations, when control of bleeding by ligaturing or other conventional means is ineffective or impractical. They may be used to stop capillary, venous and arterial haemorrhage.
Instruction for use:
HEMOTESE® must be used in sterile operating conditions after adequate preparation of the site to be treated.
HEMOTESE® is applied dry directly on the surface to be treated, pressing gently. The duration of application varies depending on the haemorrhage to be treated; in general, 2 to 6 minutes is sufficient.
HEMOTESE® may be cut to size for improved application.
As HEMOTESE® is resorbable the compress may be left in situ after achieving haemostasis. It is nevertheless recommended that excess compress be removed.
HEMOTESE® remains intact in the presence of blood and does not disintegrate once damp.
Single-use product, discard any unused and remaining product in compliance with current regulations for biological hazards.
Do not use the compress if the double wrapping is damaged.
