Next Generation Wound Care Products for the World
Over the last 6 months I had numerous opportunities to evaluate the hemostatic properties of BloodSTOP® iX and to compare it to a number of similar products available in the surgical market place.
This product was successfully used for control of epistaxis (both anterior and posterior), postoperative hemostasis following sinus surgery and postoperative hemostasis/artificial barrier following adult tonsillectomy.
BloodSTOP® iX was simple to use, less expensive than other hemostatic products and was well tolerated by the patients. In my experience, there were no complications related to the use of the product. No surgical site infections were observed.
