Z-Medica Announces Expanded CE Indications for Quikclot Hemostatic Dressings Supporting Broader Use in Surgical Wound Care
Apr 24 13
Z-Medica Corporation announced newly expanded CE indications for QuikClot(R) Hemostatic Dressings. The expanded indications support the use of QuikClot(R) products as an adjunct to manual pressure for the temporary control of moderate external bleeding from surgical wounds or cuts and lacerations during operative and postoperative care. The expanded indications for QuikClot(R) Hemostatic Dressings position these products for use within subcutaneous tissue which will impact how bleeding is controlled in procedures such as cosmetic plastic surgery, breast augmentation and reconstruction, dermatological procedures like Mohs micrographic surgery and punch biopsies, epicardial pacemaker placement, and burn and wound debridement. According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 230 million surgical operations. QuikClot(R) products for hemostasis are now in their third generation and are impregnated with a mineral called kaolin that has been clinically shown to accelerate the body's natural coagulation cascade, without causing any exothermic reaction. Kaolin is a naturally-occurring, inert mineral that does not contain any botanicals or biological material. QuikClot(R) Hemostatic Dressings present many advantages in the surgical setting. They are engineered to be flexible in order to conform to any size or shape wound, and are non-adherent so they can be removed without disturbing the integrity of a clot that has been formed. They also offer easy storage with no need for refrigeration and do not require extensive training to use.
