SURGICEL Powder Absorbable Hemostat is used in surgical procedures to efficiently and effectively control broad-surface oozing. The unique powder structure penetrates the surface of the blood to get to the sources of bleeding, with a proven in vitro bactericidal activity against a broad range of gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. SURGICEL Powder Absorbable Hemostat may be used during surgical procedures to assist in the control of capillary, venous, or small arterial hemorrhaging when litigation or other conventional methods of bleeding control are ineffective. The absorbable adjunctive hemostat stops continuous, broad-surface oozing, even on friable or raw tissue.
