On contact the ultra hygroscopic STARSIL® HEMOSTAT particles rapidly absorb fluid from the blood. The process leads to a local concentration of corpuscular blood particles such as erythrocytes, thrombocytes as well as serum proteins and thrombin, accelerating the natural coagulation cascade. It forms a dense gel matrix that seals the wound and further blood flow from the wound is inhibited.

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is not affected by the patients clotting status, therefore it is also suitable for patients under anticoagulation therapy.

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is 100% plant based and biocompatible. Unlike many other surgical hemostats it is absorbed without residues within 48 to 72 hours through endogenous amylase, preventing foreign body reactions or granuloma formation and once fully irrigated, will not swell post operatively.

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is a CE-marked class 3 medical device that can be used to achieve rapid hemostasis for profuse and diffuse bleedings as well as reliable adhesion prevention - even in difficult to reach regions.

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is available in the European Union and in many countries worldwide.

The UniTip (14cm) and UniTip XL (38cm) spray applicators provide accurate delivery of the STARSIL® HEMOSTAT powder into distand or difficult to reach regions.

Application Technique

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT can be stored in the OR at room temperature and doesn‘t need preparation or assembling.
Break and remove the cap and STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is ready to use.

Please read the Instructions for Use (IFU) for detailed information about the usage of STARSIL® HEMOSTAT, indications and contraindications.

WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

Today, STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is used in almost all surgical disciplines to achieve fast and reliable hemostasis. Because of its ease of use and benefits it is widely used from open surgery through laparoscopic intervention up to robotic-assisted surgery.

SAFE AND BIOCOMPATIBLE

Unlike many other surgical hemostats or products for adhesion prevention STARSIL® HEMOSTAT DOES NOT carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents, such as viruses or prions that can cause diseases.

And STARSIL® HEMOSTAT DOES NOT carry a risk of causing allergic/anaphylactoid reactions to bovine, porcin or human derived substances or proteins.

Stasil Hemostat - Adhesion Prevention

Why is Adhesion Prevention important?

  • Adhesions are the primary causes for long-term complications after any type of abdominal surgery.
  • Complications include bowel obstruction, infertility, difficulties at reoperations and chronic (pelvic) pain.
  • Minimal invasive surgery alone does not fully alleviate the burden of adhesion-related complications.
  • Reduction of postoperative adhesion formation is highly demanded: Each year more than 440,000 interventions were performed for removal of abdominal and pelvic adhesions in the United States, creating numerous risks to the health of the patient and costs of $ 1.2 billion/year.

ADHESION PREVENTION BARRIER

Unlike many other anti–adhesive products STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is easy to administrate both during open and laproscopic surgery. The STARSIL® HEMOSTAT powder is simply generously applied on the mesothelial defect or tissue that needs protection subsequently moistened with sterile saline solution. The polysaccharide particles absorb the fluid and form a dense gelatinous barrier preventing the contact with other tissue during the critical postoperative healing phase.

DUAL USE STRATEGY

The use of STARSIL HEMOSTAT® as topical hemostat provides atraumatic bleeding control and can minimize the use of electrocautery limiting thermal injury to the tissue.

When complete hemostasis is achived a second application of STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is used to form a gelatinous adhesion prevention barrier covering the whole affected tissue before closure.
