Abdominal surgery covers a vast number of procedures. Many of these are performed with minimally invasive techniques, and the ability to use the Vivostat® Endoscopic Applicator has proven very useful. Vivostat® is being used in a wide range of these procedures - such as:

  • Liver part resections
  • Pancreas
  • Spleen
  • Hernia mesh fixation
  • Fistulas

Some general challenges that apply to most abdominal procedures are listed below:

  • Haemostasis
  • Sealing of the treatment area
  • Gluing e.g. hernia mesh fixation
  • Regeneration of tissue

Vivostat offers the surgeon a choice of two products which can help overcome these challenges. If haemostasis, sealing or gluing are the primary challenges, Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant is an excellent choice. If it is a combination of haemostasis, sealing, gluing and regeneration of tissue, Vivostat PRF® is the ideal product.

Vivostat Autologous Fibrin Sealant is an autologous sealant that outperforms other fibrin sealants on parameters such as polymerisation, elasticity, adhesion and impact on tissue.

Vivostat PRF® is a second generation platelet enriched product acting both as a haemostat/sealant while at the same time supporting tissue regeneration and wound healing.
