EquiSpon® absorbable hemostatic sponges and powder are made of Pharmaceutical Gelatin and are indicated for use to control minimal bleeding by tamponade effect, blood absorption and platelet aggregation, and adhesion prevention following ENT surgery.
EquiSpon® gelatin sponges and powder provides fast and effective hemostasis and adhesion prevention following ENT surgeries in the nasal cavity. EquiSpon® is also highly effective in supporting the new graft in the outer ear canal after tympanoplasty and buttressing middle ear implants.
The basis of EquiSpon® is a purified protein obtained by the partial acidic hydrolysis of collagen. Collagen has a long clinical history as an effective drug carrier and widespread usage and studies have revealed the beneficial influence of using the unique biological, biochemical and mechanical properties of collagen on the wound healing process. The EquiSpon® Alpha-Gelatin (collagen) composition contributes directly to bone and wound healing.
EquiSpon® is manufactured using the highest quality standards and sterilized by gamma irradiation. EquiSpon® is supplied as pre-shaped as sponges or as a powder that can be instilled as a gel in any amorphous shape.
