ChitoCell 


Description:
ChitoCell is an oxidized regenerated cellulosic pad which accelerates hemostasis. This product is suitable for venous bleedings.
ChitoCell is used on the surgical bed for controlling capillary, venous, or suture line bleeding postoperatively. As it absorbs blood and gets saturated, it gently swells into a brownish black gelatinous mass which aids in the formation of clot. The mechanism of action of ChitoCell to stop bleeding is basically absorbing blood fluid, swelling and exerting pressure on the surrounding tissue contributing to hemostasis.

 

Main component: Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose

    Rapid hemostasis
    Biocompatible

    Prevents postoperative adhesion
    No genotoxicity 
    No cell toxicity (ISO 10993-5)
    Complies with the requirement of ISO 10993-6 for local effect after implantation
     No irritation, no sensitivity (ISO 10993-10)
    No systemic toxicity (Acute and sub chronic toxicity)(ISO 10993-11)
    Soft and comfortable therefore suitable for all parts of body
    Sterile, absorbable and compatible with body
    Absorbable in the body

    ChitoCell is effective on a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and also it is effective on resistant bacteria (to antibiotic such as VRE, MRSE, and MRSA)

 

 

Indications
    All surgeries, anastomosis, tumor beds, neuro-surgeries and plastic surgeries.
    Suitable for patients with coagulopathic disorders 

    Suitable for control of capillary, venous, and small arterial hemorages

 

Contraindications

-    ChitoCell is recommended to be removed after hemostasis is achieved.

-  For avoiding interference with bone cell formation and increasing the risk of cyst formation, avoid using ChitoCell for implantation in bone defects, such as fractures.

-   Since ChitoCell will swell and could exert slight pressure, it must be removed after hemostasis in neurosurgery, bony tissues and the spinal cord surgeries

-   Do not use ChitoCell as an adhesion prevention product 

Warnings

-   ChitoCell should not be resterilized

-   ChitoCell is not intended as a substitute for careful surgery and the proper use of sutures and ligatures

-   Although ChitoCell is an antibacterial hemostatic agent, it is not intended to be used as a substitute for systemically administered therapeutic or prophylactic antimicrobial agents to control or to prevent postoperative infections

Precautions

-   Apply sufficient amount of ChitoCell on bleeding site. Although ChitoCell is a biocompatible product, to minimize the possibility of foreign body reaction, remove any excess before surgical closure.
