Multiple studies have shown the positive effects of fibrin and platelets1,2 when used in the following applications:

  • Common challenges within orthopaedic surgery are bleeding and regeneration of tissue and bone. The successful handling of these challenges will have a positive effect on complications and re-operations, leading to faster rehabilitation, shorter hospital stay and lower overall procedure costs.Joint replacements
  • Connective tissue repair
  • Bone Repair

Vivostat offers the surgeon a choice of two products which can help overcome these challenges. If achieving haemostasis is the primary goal, Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant is an excellent choice. If the primary challenge is connective 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.
