Instructions for Use

Indication for Use

HEMOPATCH is intended as a hemostatic device and surgical sealant for procedures in which control of bleeding or leakage of other body fluids or air by conventional surgical techniques is either ineffective or impractical. HEMOPATCH may be used to close dural defects following traumatic injury, excision, retraction or shrinkage of the dura mater.

Contraindications

Do not compress HEMOPATCH into blood vessels or use intravascularly. The device must not be used in patients with known hypersensitivity to bovine proteins or brilliant blue (FD&C Blue No. 1 (Blue 1)).

Warnings

HEMOPATCH is not intended to be used in pulsatile, severe bleedings. The use of HEMOPATCH is not recommended in the presence of an active infection. When used in, around, or in proximity to foramina in bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, the brain and/or cranial nerves, care should be exercised to avoid overpacking, creating the potential for neural damage. HEMOPATCH is not intended as a substitute for meticulous surgical technique and the proper application of ligatures or other conventional procedures for hemostasis and sealing.
