BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostatic for ENT Otolaryngology
BloodSTOP® iX in ENT
BloodSTOP® iX provides a high degree of efficacy for bleeding control, and can be utilized in the varied topical bleeding situations encountered in a surgical setting. Its fabric-like matrix conforms to all wound surfaces and, when transformed to gel, seals the wound with a protective layer. BloodSTOP® iX is a sterile product ready for immediate use out of the package, and can quickly and easily be cut or packed to appropriate size to fit in tight spaces, such as nostril. It is odorless and tasteless, making it more palatable for the patient, and is easily rinsed away with sterile water or saline solution. Multiple pieces can be placed on a wound site to stop wide area bleeding. Unlike cauterization, BloodSTOP® iX eliminates negative impact to tissue. Its reliability and fast-acting nature frees up the surgeon to focus on the operative task at hand with the confidence of knowing that bleeding is under control.

“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.”

Technique Tip for Surgeons
Apply BloodSTOP® iX on wounds with dry instruments! The hydrophilic properties of BloodSTOP® iX will cause it to adhere to wet instruments or wet gloves, making application difficult.
