The Vivostat® application system possesses a number of features that are highly beneficial in neurosurgery: The Vivostat® application system offers different spray modes, e.g. “No Air” which means that it has low impact on tissue and vital organs/nerves in the skull. Furthermore, Vivostat® is applied with extreme accuracy through precision spraying.

Neurosurgeons most often choose Vivostat® for:

  • Dural closure
  • Repair of dural defects
  • Spinal fusions
  • Tumor resections
  • Filler in “dead spaces”

One of the main challenges in neurosurgery is cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. Infections are another challenge. The risk of infections increases due to “dead spaces”. It is therefore preferable to fill
these with a sterile and autologous product.

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

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.
