BloodSTOP® iX Hemostatic Advanced WoundHeal® Matrix for Burn Surgery

Immediate Hemostasis with BloodSTOP® iX

Re-healing of donor site at 7 days from 2nd operation

“We used BloodSTOP® iX on patients’ donor sites and we’re seeing 7 days healing and have used this same site for reharvesting.”

– Dr. Poulakidas, MD, FACS

Director of the Burn Unit at Cook County Health and Hospital System

BloodSTOP® iX is a next generation hemostatic and wound healing matrix made from water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl nanocellulose. It is used by medical professionals and hospitals. It is a fully biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrix of natural cellulose. It absorbs blood and exudates, transforms into a gel and adheres to any wound and, upon contact with blood, initiates blood coagulation, stops bleeding fast, and forms a protective layer that creates an autologous moist wound healing environment.

It has European Union CE Certification for internal and surface use, including with anticoagulant medications. BloodSTOP® iX currently has US Market Clearance for surface wound hemostasis.

A Novel Approach to Maintain Hemostasis and Achieve Improved Wound Healing

BloodSTOP® iX was placed over the entire wound followed by a layer of non-adherent dressing and then the left forearm was placed into a wound VAC. Upon takedown of the entire dressing on postoperative day five, it was noted that the patient’s wounds were completely epithelialized and his wound care was transitioned to lotion.
