Hemostatic Agents, Surgical, Non-Absorbable

Definition : Surgical hemostatic agents designed for intraoperative control of organ and/or tissue bleeding (i.e., hemorrhage) during surgical procedures and are not absorbed by the body. These agents may consist of adhesive products (e.g., biological glues) that create a mechanical barrier to decrease blood flow. Products that polymerize after application, as well as products consisting of sterile foams (e.g., sponges) or collagen that are frequently impregnated with thrombin, are also available. Non-absorbable surgical hemostatic agents are intended mainly for permanent bleeding control in the main vasculature. They are designed to facilitate recovery after surgery and to help avoid additional surgical procedures. They may be also used in some emergency situations (e.g., to stop hemorrhage in open wounds).
