What is it? What does it do?
This is an elastomeric band that encircles blood vessels, grafts or anastomoses in order to prevent suture-line bleeding and restore homeostasis post-surgery. This novel band device features a patterned internal surface that utilizes an optimized cellular structure in order to isolate each bleeding point, concentrating leaking blood to a small area.
Why is it better?
Low-cost adjunct to sealants and pledgets.
The treads in the band’s internal surface isolate the bleeding to a confined area.
Effective in heparinized patients
Customizable for shape, size, geometry
Simple, rapid application
What is its current status?
Patent pending in the US.
