CLINISPONGE®

Absorbable Haemostatic Gelatin Sponge


Clinisponge is a sterile, implantable, absorbable gelatin sponge with haemostatic effect. Clinisponge is indicated for surgical procedur to stop capillary, venous bleeding and oozing when conventional methods are impractical and inefficient.
Clinisponge is produced from pharmaceutical purified gelatin. The sponge has an uniform porosity and reacts naturally to coagulation process. Due to its structure, blood platelets are caught and the coagulation cascade is activated; transforming soluble fibrinogen into a net of insoluble fibrin which stops the bleeding.

Clinisponge is absorbed completely within 3-4 weeks when implanted into the tissue, however; the amount of usage, depending on the applied field to absorb may change. Clinisponge is a natur and biocompatible product; well tolerated by the tissue.

Clinisponge is double blister packaged and sterilized by gamma irridiation.
