Hemostat is a surgical tool used to control bleeding during surgery. Hemostats are applied by the means of tissue sealants and tissue adhesion agents. Tissue sealants and adhesives are mainly classified into two types namely, physical agents and biological substrates. Tissue sealants, tissue adhesives and adhesion prevention products are rapidly replacing conventional sutures for wound and incision closure. Advantages of tissue sealants, tissue adhesives and adhesion prevention products over conventional suture involve minimal invasive application, improve visualization, reduced operating time, prevention of leakage of non-blood fluids and reduced post-operative infection risks and thereby reduction in hospital stays and overall medical costs.
Get forward looking perspective of Hemostats Market at:
Wide rangeof applications, continuous advancement in product portfolio, technological advancement facilitating the end users and insurance support to manufacturers in promoting tissue sealants are the major driving forces of the global hemostatsmarket. On the other hand, low awareness about the products and stringent regulatory rules to control and regulate the tissue adhesives and tissue sealantsindustry are restraining the potential growth of this market. The global hemostats products market can be segmented on the basis of types of product such as:
> Collagen-based topical hemostats
> Oxidized regenerated cellulose-based topical hemostat
> Gelatin-based topical hemostat
> Thrombin-based topical hemostat
> Combination topical hemostat
> Fibrin sealants
> Protein-based sealants
Cyanoacrylate-based tissue adhesives
Adhesion prevention products
