For decades fibrin sealant has been used for burns as a scaffold for re-epithelialization. Vivostat PRF® provides this scaffold and combines it with a high concentration of platelets relevant for tissue regeneration. Moreover, it offers the surgeon the opportunity to co-deliver skin cells/stem cells with the Vivostat PRF® solution.

The high concentration of fibrin found in Vivostat PRF®, furthermore, acts as a glue enabling the surgeon to use Vivostat PRF® for graft fixations. Using Vivostat PRF® to fixate the graft allows the surgeon to use less staples or none at all depending on the location of the burn. The fibrin also acts as a haemostatic reducing the risk of haematoma formation, which may cause graft loss. Any remaining Vivostat PRF® can be applied to the graft harvest site to speed up tissue regeneration and reduce pain for the patient.

Vivostat® Co-Delivery

Skin cells/stem cells are expensive and it is crucial that they do not run off the burn or stick to the dressing. By using the Vivostat® Co-Delivery system it is possible to co-deliver skin cells/stem cells to the burn with the Vivostat PRF® solution i.e.

Vivostat PRF® is used as a carrier of the cells. Co-delivering the cells with the Vivostat

PRF® solution ensures that the cells stay where they are applied as the fibrin found in Vivostat PRF® polymerizes upon application.
