  • Suitable for neurosurgery
  • It could be left in situ without increased risk of bone infection or non- union of the sternum.
  • Absorbs completely, leaving no reside or encapsulation.
  • After mixing to desired dilution,Surgispon® Putty can be fashion into many shapes as a putty or instilled into those hard to get to crevices or sinuses. Putty configuration maximises adherence and stops venous and spongy bone oozing.

  • Used dry or soaked with physiological solutionell adhering ability to the bleeding site
  • Absorbs completely within 4 weeks, 2-5 days in mucous membrane.

Where to use

In sternotomy and craniotomy procedures- irregular structures such as bone and for filling any hard to reach areas like cavities or fissures to control venous and arteriolar bleeding
