OBJECTIVE We evaluated the safety and efficacy of the fibrin sealant Beriplast P (FSBP; Aventis-Behring) for hemostasis in anastomosis of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) grafts to the femoral artery. METHODS In a single-blinded randomized prospective multicenter clinical trial, FSBP was compared with thrombin-soaked gelatin sponge (TSG) for efficacy in stopping bleeding from needle or suture holes in PTFE grafts after anastomosis to the femoral artery. Patients were randomized to FSBP… CONTINUE READING
