Adjunctive hemostasis to control mild-to-moderate intraoperative bleeding. Do not use for the treatment of major arterial or venous bleeding.
TachoSil® patch harnesses the efficacy of a fibrin sealant in the convenience of a surgical patch for targeted bleeding coverage. The coating of active biological ingredients fibrinogen and thrombin on one side of the collagen patch promote hemostasis by triggering the last stage of the coagulation cascade to create a fibrin clot.
*Preclinical results may not correlate with results in humans.
Indicated for use with manual compression in adult and pediatric patients as an adjunct to hemostasis in cardiovascular and hepatic surgery when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature or cautery) is ineffective or impractical.
Not for use in place of sutures or other forms of mechanical ligation in treatment of major arterial or venous bleeding. Not for use in children under one month of age.
