Vascular Solutions Announces the Launch of ThrombiDisc™ Topical Hemostat
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota -- February 4, 2014 — Vascular Solutions, Inc. recently announced the launch of the ThrombiDisc topical hemostat designed for use around indwelling lines up to 12F.
ThrombiDisc contains both the power of thrombin to facilitate hemostasis and the antimicrobial properties of silver. The ThrombiDisc topical hemostat is a sterile pad, 1" in diameter, containing lyophilized bovine thrombin, a protein substance that gives the bandage its bleeding control properties. Unlike other pads that just absorb blood around indwelling lines, ThrombiDisc is an adjunct to manual compression and assists in the control of surface bleeding with the power of thrombin. Additionally, ThrombiDisc contains silver chloride to prevent microorganisms commonly encountered in the clinical setting from colonizing on the pad. ThrombiDisc topical hemostat is currently available in the United States.
