SURGISPON® is non-toxic, non-immunogenic, non-allergenic, non-pyrogenic and
biocompatible surgical haemostatic sponge. It is manufactured using from
highly purified first extract grade gelatin material to use in various
surgical procedures. SURGISPON® is
similar to Cutanplast, Spongostan, Abgel, Gelspon, Equispon, Curaspon,
Gelitaspon, Vetspon, Willospon, Surgispon, Safespon, Surgifoam,
Spongostan Dental, Spongostan Standard, Hemospon. SURGISPON®
can easily absorb about 40-50 times and adhere to the bleeding place.
The consistent porosity of SURGISPON® promises favorable haemostatic.
fixed in vivo, it is totally absorbed in 3-4 weeks. SURGISPON® gelatin
sponge has a porous arrangement that activates the thrombocytes when
blood comes in contact with sponge matrix. This leads to the release of
substances that encourage aggregation as the surfaces vary character,
therefore allowing them to perform like a catalyst for the creation of
SURGISPON® DIRECTIONS TO USE:
use disinfected technique to remove SURGISPON®Sterile Sponge from
packaging. Cut it to the preferred size either dry or drenched with
sterile, isotonic sodium chloride solution (sterile saline) and apply
directly to the bleeding site with pressure.
apply dry, use a single piece of SURGISPON® manually to the bleeding
site. Hold it with moderate pressure till homeostasis results.
apply sterile saline, immerse SURGISPON® in the solution and squeeze
between gloved fingers to eject air bubbles. Then replaced it in saline.
It should be returned to original size with juts a slight increase in
thickness and form within the solution. If this does not happen, remove
it again and knead strongly until the air is completely expelled and it
expands to its original size.
it sued wet, it can blotted to dampness before application. Always hold
it with moderate pressure with a cotton or small gauze sponge. Wetting
pledget or gauze with sterile saline makes their removal easy that also
prevent the pulling of SURGISPON®.
suction over the cotton or gauze to draw blood into the SURGISPON® is
needless, as SURGISPON® draws up sufficient blood through capillary
action. SURGISPON® usually controls bleeding, but if it does not, extra
applications may be done. Use fresh pieces only in the minimum amount,
cut it to suitable size. The SURGISPON® might be left at the bleeding
site, if necessary.
Since SURGISPON® leads to more cellular reaction; the wound is closed over it.
SURGISPON® can be successfully used in a variety of surgeries such as:
- Dental Surgery: SURGISPON®
is used in dental surgery either dry or saturated with thrombin
solution that control bleeding in extractions and apicenctomics.
- Malignancy: SURGISPON®
that is moistened with physiological salt solution or thrombin solution
can stop bleeding from tumor beds following section or from tumor beds
- Abdominal Surgery: SURGISPON®
is used in Abdominal Surgery as dry, saturated with physiological salt
solution or thrombin solution. It stops bleeding of the denuded visceral
surfaces of the liver, gall bladder, and spleen.
- Orthopedic Surgery: Moistened SURGISPON® in physiological salt solution or thrombin solution is used
in Orthopedic Surgery to control bleeding from the bone tissues. It does
not obstruct the healing process with its readily absorbed feature.
- Neuro Surgery:
Moistened SURGISPON® with thrombin solution is highly effective in
healing torn Dural venous sinuses in stopping oozing from the dura under
the bone flap edges to control bleeding in herniated disc operation,
in osseous bleeding and epidural bleeding in laminectomy.
- Genito- Urinary Surgery: SURGISPON® controls the bleeding in Genito- Urinary Surgery without any interfere with the curing process.
- Anorectal Surgery: SURGISPON®
is tolerated as a haemostatic dressing to control anal bleeding during
plastic of an imperforate anus, and subsequently hemorrhoidectomy and
- Gynecological Surgery: SURGISPON®
control bleeding during veginal plastic operations, cervical
amputation, extensive pelvic dissections, biopsy and secondary bleeding
after abdominal hysterectomy.
- Otolaryngological Surgery: Saturated SURGISPON® with physiological salt solution eradicates post operative
bleeding in sub mucous resections. Place SURGISPON® in the nose and hold
for a few seconds to prevent bleeding and removing nasal polyps. The
same process can also be utilized to control bleeding after
adenoidectomy, sinus operations, and tonsillectomy.
