BLOODCARE matrix is a sterile haemostatic preparation based on oxidised cellulose.

BLOODCARE matrix is a firmly woven haemostatic fabric with high tensile strength for heavier bleeding, made of natural origin from highest Alpha grade selected cotton.

It provides excellent endurance and an outstanding strength of the material, while the sufficient flexibility is maintained.

The haemostatic effect of BLOODCARE matrix is almost immediate, the full haemostasis is achieved by 2 minutes after application. Higher density provides exceptional endurance enabling to control also more extensive haemorrhaging.

Special characteristics

  • due to the structure of the material it is possible to fix it by stitching
  •  it has bactericidal and bacteriostatic features against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative organisms, due to the presence of carboxyl groups
  • due to its ability to regulate the activity of fagocytes, it brings an effective support in healing process by protecting the site against secondary toxic effects

Dimensions

BLOODCARE matrix is manufactured in different dispensing forms which can cover any need for an effective haemostasis in different types of surgery. It can be cut to a required size and shape for use in a particular surgical procedure.

Sizes available:
50 x 50 mm, 50 x 70 mm, 50 x 100 mm, 100 x 100 mm, 100 x 200 mm
(other dimensions are subject to individual agreement)

BLOODCARE matrix in full details

EXCELLENT HAEMOSTATIC FEATURES: IMPROVED OPERATIVE TECHNIQUE = REDUCED COSTS

  • the haemostatic effect is almost immediate, the full haemostasis is achieved by 2 minutes after application
  • higher density provides exceptional endurance enabling to control also more extensive haemorrhaging
  • it is easy to fix the material in one place by stitching

TOTAL ABSORPTION: MINIMAL RISK OF POST-OPERATIVE SIDE EFFECTS

  • it is fully absorbed by 12 – 72 hours, depending on the application form and wound extent
  • entirely eliminated from the body within 7 – 21 days, leaving no deposit behind it in tissues and cells

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS: STRENGTH WITH ENDURANCE AND FLEXIBILITY

  • excellent endurance and an outstanding strength of the material, while the sufficient flexibility is maintained
  • due to the structure of the material it is possible to fix it by stitching
  • it has bactericidal and bacteriostatic features against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative organisms, due to the presence of carboxyl groups
  • due to its ability to regulate the activity of fagocytes, it brings an effective support in healing process by protecting the site against secondary toxic effects

ADDITIONAL FEATURES: MAXIMUM SAFETY

  • is biocompatible, biodegradable, non-acidifying haemostat preparation of natural origin
  • is hypoallergenic – no sensitive features have been reported, no immune-reactions have been initiated, even after repeated application
  • is well tolerated by the organism and has a significant effect on healing process in wounds
  • causes no irritating reactions on the application area, no granuloms are formed
  • is an ideal alternative to bovine fibrins and collagens

Area of Application

AREAS OF APPLICATION: EXCEPTIONAL INSTRUMENT IN MANY AREAS OF SURGERY

  • is suitable for use in general surgery and digestive surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, gynaecology, urology, stomatology, traumatology and all other branches of surgery
  • it could be applied into cavities (after extirpation of tumors) as well as endoscopy surgical interventions
  • is also indicated for use in dental application – oral surgery, exodontia, tooth extraction and other procedures in the oral cavity
  • is suitable for use in veterinary applications, both surgical and superficial treatment

Method of Use

EASY HANDLING: CONVINCING AND RELIABLE HANDLING

  • the material could be applied immediately on to the bleeding area
  • it is easy to form or cut the material into a required shape for optimal handling and adjustability to the bleeding surface
  • only necessary size/volume could be applied
  • the material provides maximum flexibility enabling an excellent adaptation to anatomical structures, while an exceptional strength and endurance makes you feel confident upon application

METHOD OF USE: IMMEDIATE STERILE APPLICATION

  • open the outer/secondary packaging, and take the inner/primary packaging out
  • take the sterile piece out of the primary package
  • adjust/cut by sterile instruments to the requested application size if desirable
  • apply onto the bleeding area
  • suture to the tissue if recommended
  • do not remove – it will be fully absorbed
  • apply another layer in case the blood still oozes through

 WARNING: NOT SUITABLE FOR PRESSURE BLEEDING

  • is not suitable for the control of arterial or venous pressure bleeding where appropriate prior ‘tying off’ or cautery of blood vessels must be carried out
  • it may be used to control small arterial or venous bleeding in combination with application of short time digital pressure or pressure packing

Dimensions and Packaging
