  • OBJECTIVE: To develop a standardized porcine epistaxis model and evaluate the hemostatic effects of octyl-cyanoacrylate (OCA). STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: Twenty-four standardized full-thickness wounds were created on the nasal septae of 7 pigs with a 4-mm surgical punch. Wounds were randomized to no treatment or topical OCA before and after full heparinization. The rate of hemostasis, time to hemostasis, and number of applicators of OCA required to achieve complete hemostasis were determined and… CONTINUE READING
