WHAT IS STATSEAL®?
Standardize, simplify and minimize post procedure care and maintenance from cath lab procedures with StatSeal, a topical hemostat that quickly forms an occlusive seal to stop the flow of blood and exudates. Comprised of a hydrophilic polymer and potassium ferrate, StatSeal works independently of the clotting cascade to seal the site, while accelerating hemostasis and reducing hold times by 50% or more, regardless of anticoagulation levels.1-3
THE STATSEAL SOLUTION
StatSeal is available in both powder and disc (compressed powder) form to suit a wide variety of clinical applications, from bleeding control after closure device deployment, to sheath removals from diagnostics and interventional procedures. Integrating StatSeal into cath lab protocols has been found to result in significant clinical, economical and operational efficiencies.1-3
- Instantly creates an occlusive seal
- • Significantly accelerates hemostasis; seal strengthens with pressure and over time1-3
- • Reduces hold times by 50% or more1-3
- • Creates a hostile barrier to microbial penetration4
- Minimizes post procedure care
- • Facilitates same-day discharge; seal goes home with patient
- • Improves hemostasis time, without increasing hematoma rates1-3
- • Allows for timely re-access of site
- Improves outcomes
- • Minimizes site complications; improves patient comfort and satisfaction1-3
- • Reduces nursing hours and increases patient throughput1-3
- • Reduces material cost; less expensive than pads, patches or closure devices3
StatSeal, in conjunction with any radial hemostasis band or manual pressure, can help standardize, simplify and shorten the recovery process to under an hour.
- For radial procedures:
- • StatSeal Advanced Disc
- • StatSeal Advanced RAD Disc
As a manual pressure adjunct, StatSeal controls external bleeding from sheath removal and oozing after closure
device deployment, while minimizing hematoma risk.
- For femoral procedures:
- • StatSeal Advanced Plus Disc
StatSeal helps achieve fast, consistent hemostasis on sheath removals, drastically shortening recovery time,
even on patients who are prone to bleeding.
- For electrophysiology procedures:
- • StatSeal Advanced Powder
HOW DOES STATSEAL WORK?
As a manual pressure adjunct, StatSeal’s mechanism of action is two-step and occurs simultaneously to instantly form a low pH, “nothing in/nothing out” seal or physical barrier:
- • The hydrophilic polymer rapidly dehydrates the blood and absorbs exudate, stacking up blood solids beneath to form a seal.
- • The potassium ferrate agglomerates the solids and proteins together, adhering the seal to the wound to stop bleeding and oozing. Beneath the seal, the pH is neutral and the blood solids and proteins continue to stack naturally. Above the seal, the hydrophilic polymer exchanges protons for cations, resulting in desiccation properties and a pH of ~ 2, which creates a hostile barrier to microbial penetration.4
