TissuePatch films are used in surgical procedures which require internal tissue closure to be sealed against leakage of water, blood, air or other fluids.

Examples include:

  • Neuro/Spinal surgery: sealing of dura mater against Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) leakage.
  • Thoracic (including thoracoscopic) surgery: sealing of sutured or stapled lung tissue against air leakage
  • ENT/Head and Neck surgery: minimising leakage of blood or other fluids

For details of indications always refer to Instructions for Use.

Note that TissuePatch films are intended for use as an adjunct and are not intended to replace sutures or staples, as appropriate, in tissue approximation
