Baxter Launches HEMOPATCH, An Innovative Sealing Hemostat, In European Union


HEMOPATCH Sealing Hemostat is intended as a hemostatic device for surgical procedures when control of bleeding by pressure, ligature, or conventional procedures is either ineffective or impractical.

Important Risk Information

HEMOPATCH Sealing Hemostat is not intended to be used in pulsatile, severe bleedings. The use of HEMOPATCH Sealing Hemostat is not recommended in the presence of an active infection. When used in, around, or in proximity to foramina in bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, and/or the optic nerve and chiasm, care should be exercised to avoid overpacking (collagens do expand upon absorption of liquid, and may create the potential of nerve damage). HEMOPATCH Sealing Hemostat is not intended as a substitute for meticulous surgical technique and the proper application of ligatures or other conventional procedures for hemostasis.

Do not compress HEMOPATCH Sealing Hemostat into blood vessels or use intravascularly. The device must not be used in patients with known hypersensitivity to bovine proteins or brilliant blue (FD&C #1, blue dye).
