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
