Wound Dressing Complements Invasive Vessel Closure

The SafeSeal Hemostasis Patch topical wound dressing decreases the time it takes to control bleeding from the puncture made into a blood vessel to perform an endovascular procedure. Designed to assist manual pressure and complement invasive vessel closure techniques, the patch specifically targets the more than seven million diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed annually in the U.S. for coronary and peripheral applications.
The SafeSeal Patch employs a micro-bead material used extensively to control bleeding in humans in trauma, postoperative surgical wounds and other difficult bleeding situations.
The design features a clear window that aids in positioning the patch and viewing the condition of the wound. The adhesive positioning strip and pull-tab delivery of the MPH beads allow easy and accurate deployment by one person.
