Learn About Ethicon SURGICEL Original Hemostat, 4" x 8"

Ethicon Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat is a sterile absorbable knitted fabric prepared by the controlled oxidation of regenerated cellulose. The fabric is white with a pale yellow cast and has a faint, caramel-like aroma. Surgicel is strong and can be sutured or cut without fraying. Ethicon Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat is stable and should be stored at controlled room temperature. A slight discoloration may occur with age, but this does not affect performance.

When to Use Ethicon SURGICEL Original Hemostat?

  • Used adjunctively in surgical procedures to assist in the control of capillary, venous, and small arterial hemorrhage when ligation or other conventional methods of control are impractical or ineffective

How to use Ethicon SURGICEL Original Hemostat?

  • It should be cut to the appropriate size for endodcopic placement. Standard endoscopic procedures should be used to the point of placement of the absorbable hemostat. Grasp the Ethicon Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat at one corner.
  • Slowly push the grasping instrument and material into the cavity.
  • With the use of grasping instruments in a second and/ or third auxiliary site, placement can be made and the material repositioned as needed.

    When not to use Ethicon SURGICEL Original Hemostat?

    • Although packing or wadding sometimes is medically necessary, SURGICEL Absorbable Hemostat should not be used in this manner, unless it is to be removed after hemostasis is achieved.
    • Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat should not be used for implantation in bone defects, such as fractures, since there is a possibility of interference with callus formation and a theoretical chance of cyst formation.
    • When Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat is used to help achieve hemostasis in, around, or in proximity to foramina in bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, or the optic nerve and chiasm, it must always be removed after hemostasis is achieved since it will swell and could exert unwanted pressure.
    • Should not be used to control hemorrhage from large arteries.
    • It should not be used on non hemorrhagic serous oozing surfaces, since body fluids other than whole blood, such as serum, do not react with Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat to produce satisfactory hemostatic effect.
    • Surgicel Absorbable Hemostat is an absorbable hemostat, and should not be used as an adhesion prevention product.
