For more than a decade, Vivostat® has been used in cardiac surgery. Cardiac surgeons find Vivostat® most useful for the following surgical procedures:

  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • Aortic anastomosis during CABG
  • Congenital heart surgery
  • Implantation of vascular prostheses
  • Operation for active endocarditis of the aortic root
  • Type A aortic dissection
  • Sternal wound healing
  • Surgery in high-risk patients, i.e. patients in anticoagulation therapy,
    Plavix therapy and diabetic patients

All though great advances in cardiac surgery have been made challenges still exist – some of these are:

  • Haemostasis of diffuse bleedings
  • Sealing of suture lines
  • Regeneration of tissue

Vivostat® offers the surgeon a choice of two products that can help with the above challenges. If haemostasis and/or sealing are the primary challenges, Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant is an excellent choice. If the primary challenge is tissue regeneration, Vivostat PRF® is the best choice

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.
