What is FASTCLOT®?
FASTCLOT® is a unique therapeutic platform technology. In its first application, SURGICLOT®, supplemental clot-forming proteins are dispersed on a bleeding injury site.
SURGICLOT® has a dual mechanism of action to control cancellous bone bleeding. The dextran component achieves initial hemostasis by tamponade. As the dextran dissolves, the clotting proteins, thrombin and fibrinogen, are activated to form a human protein-derived clot that seals the surface.
The fibrin clot is highly efficacious and, therefore, cost-effective. Hemostasis is achieved quickly and the clot becomes tenacious and translucent, allowing the surgeon to continue to work in the area without re-bleeding.
The dextran, once solubilized, is removed as part of normal suctioning. The remaining clot initially shrinks a small amount, eliminating problems associated with swelling, and is resorbed by the body similar to a normal hematoma.
We believe that SURGICLOT® will become the standard of care for treating orthopaedic surgical bleeding.
Our first focus is treating cancellous bone bleeding during orthopaedic surgery. Once CE Mark is achieved, it will be the only hemostatic dressing approved for cancellous bone bleeding during surgery that can be left in the body.Additional Applications
Research & Technology
FASTCLOT® technology performance has been explored in a broad range of hemostasis applications.
19 pre-clinical studies have focused in three basic medical areas: (1) spine and orthopaedic procedures; (2) control of high-volume arterial/venous bleeding; and (3) soft tissue / liver & spleen coagulation.Read The Research
