INTRODUCTION Fibrin sealants (FS) have been used for many years to facilitate hemostasis and to provide suture support and sealing/adhesion of tissues after surgery. While their composition is similar, different formulations, application devices, and varying concentrations of key components mean that the properties of clots formed by individual FS can be diverse. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed several studies, including animal models, to compare the properties of 12 different commercially… CONTINUE READING
