Description

VETSPON absorbable hemostatic gelatin sponges provide effective, quick and easy hemostasis during general veterinary surgery and dental procedures. This product helps your pet recover quicker after a surgery or dental procedure.

VETSPON Absorbable Gelatin Sponges are:

  • Sterile
  • Water-insoluble
  • Malleable

VETSPON can be cut to desired size and shape and applied to the bleeding site either dry or saturated with sterile saline.

Benefits of Quick and Effective Hemostasis

  • Minimizes blood loss
  • Allows a dry, Clearly visible surgical field
  • Saves valuable surgical and anesthesia time
  • Longer surger/anasthesia time=increased surgical and post surgical morbidity, longer recovery

Benefits of Quick Hemostasis:

  • increases the surgical speed
  • decreases anesthetic time and monitoring
  • can improve recovery time for the patient
  • By stopping oozing bleeding, VETSPON increases the visibility and provides a "clear" area for surgery for the surgeon.

Indications

VETSPON, used dry or saturated with sterilesodium chloride solution, is indicated for surgical procedures (except ophthalmic) for hemostasis, when control of capillary or small venous or arteriolar bleeding (oozing bleeding) by pressure, ligature or other conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical. Although not necessary, VETSPON can be used with thrombin to achieve hemostasis.

Directions

View Vetspon Drug Facts Sheet.

Before using, inspect the package for signs of damage. If the package is damaged or wet, sterility cannot be assured and the contents should not be used. Use sterile technique to remove VETSPON from its packaging. Cut the sheet to the desired size. Use only the minimum amount necessary to achieve hemostasis. This piece of VETSPON canbe applied to the bleeding site either dry or saturated with sterile isotonic sodium chloride solution (sterile saline). Open packages of VETSPON should be discarded, since they are not intended for reuse and/or resterilization. When used in appropriate amounts the sponge is absorbed completely within 4 to 6 weeks. In an animal implantation study, tissue reactions were classified as negligible when observed macroscopically and moderate when observed microscopically. When applied to bleeding mucosal regions, VETSPON liquefies within 2 to 5 days.

Dry Use:

  1. Cut the VETSPON sponge or cube to desired size and shape.
  2. Manually compress the sponge prior to applying to the bleeding site.
  3. Hold VETSPON in place with moderate pressure until hemostasis is achieved.
  4. If desired, remove excess VETSPON upon achieving hemostasis by gently irrigating the site with sterile saline solution to completely wet the sponge.
  5. The portion of the VETSPON that is adhering to the bleeding site may be left insitu. Use only the amount required to achieve hemostasis and remove any excess.

Use With Sterile Saline Preparation:

  1. Cut the VETSPON sponge or cube to desired size and shape.
  2. Immerse the VETSPON in the saline solution.
  3. Withdraw the sponge and squeeze between gloved fingers to expel air bubbles.
  4. Return sponge to the solution. The VETSPON should promptly return to its original size and shape in the solution. If it does not, remove it from the solution and vigorously knead it between gloved fingers until all air is expelled and it returns to its original size and shape when placed in the solution.
  5. Blot the sponge to desired dampness ongauze before applying to the bleeding site.
  6. Hold the VETSPON in place with gauzeusing moderate pressure until hemostasisis achieved.
  7. Removal of gauze is aided by wetting witha few drops of saline, which helps prevent in advertent removal of the VETSPON and clot.
  8. Remove excess VETSPON upon achieving hemostasis by gentle irrigation of the site with sterile saline solution to completely wet the sponge.
  9. The portion of the VETSPON that is adhering to the bleeding site may be left in situ. Use only the amount required to achieve hemostasis and remove any excess.

Caution:

Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts thisdevice to sale by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Warnings:

VETSPON is not intended as a substitute formeticulous surgical technique and the properapplication of ligatures or other conventionalprocedures for hemostasis.VETSPON® should not be used in the presenceof infection.

VETSPON should be used with caution in contaminated areas of the body. If signs of infection or abscess develop where VETSPON® has been positioned, surgery may be necessary to remove the infected material and allow drainage.

VETSPON should not be used in instances of pumping arterial hemorrhage. It should not be used where blood or other fluids have pooledor in cases where the point of hemorrhage is submerged. VETSPON will not act as a tampon or plug in a bleeding site, nor will it close off an area of blood collecting behinda tampon.

VETSPON should be removed if possible once hemostasis has been achieved because of the possibility of dislodgment of the deviceor compression of other nearby anatomic structures.

VETSPON should be removed from the site of application when used in, around,

near foramina in bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, and/or the optic nerve and chiasm.

The safety and effectiveness of VETSPON for use in ophthalmic procedures has not been established.

VETSPON should not be used for controlling post-partum bleeding.

Precautions:

Although absorbable hemostasis products have been used in veterinary medicine, safe and effective use of this product has not been proven through randomized, prospective controlled clinical studies on animals.

VETSPON is supplied as a sterile product and cannot be resterilized. Discard unused portions of open envelopes or blisters of VETSPON.

When placed into cavities or closed tissue spaces, use minimal preliminary compression and avoid overpacking of VETSPON into the cavity. VETSPON may swell to its original size on absorbing fluids, creating the potential for nerve damage. While packing a cavity for hemostasis is sometimes surgically indicated, VETSPON should only be used in this manner if excess product not needed to maintain hemostasisis removed.

Use only the minimum amount of VETSPON needed to achieve hemostasis. Once hemostasis is achieved, any excess VETSPON should be carefully removed.

VETSPON should not be used in conjunction with methyl methacrylate adhesives. In humans, microfibrillar collagen has been reported to reduce the strength of methyl methacrylate adhesives used to attach prosthetic devices to bone surfaces.

VETSPON should not be used for the primary treatment of coagulation disorders.

The safety and effectiveness of the combined use of VETSPON with other agents such as topical thrombin, antibiotic solution orantibiotic powder have not been evaluated in controlled clinical trials and therefore cannot be recommended. If in the veterinarian's judgment, concurrent use of topical thrombin or other agents is medically advisable, consult the product literature for that agent for complete prescribing information.

The safety and effectiveness for use in urological procedures have not been established through a randomized clinical study. In urological procedures, VETSPON should not be left in the renal pelvis or ureters to eliminate the potential foci for calculus formation.

Storage and Handling

VETSPON should be stored dry at controlled room temperature 15°-30°C (59°-86°F).VETSPON should be used as soon as the package is opened. Discard partially used packages. Do not attempt to resterilize partially used units.
