Aquabrid Surgical Sealant

Ideal for wet conditions

Aquabrid is a fully synthetic surgical sealant for aortic surgical procedures. In contact with water it forms an elastic layer within 3 to 5 minutes – making it optimal for use in wet conditions. Aquabrid stretches and shrinks with the contraction of the vessel, while maintaining a  strong seal in the aorta.1, 2

"I'm very satisfied by using Aquabrid with the adhesive capability of it and it supports me to control aortic bleeding. It is beneficial because it’s elastic and it's resembled the normal tissue."

Dr. Ashraf, Head of Cardiac Surgeon, Cardiac surgery, Al-Mezan Hospital, Hebron - West Bank, Palestinia

“Our aim is to finish bleeding control in minimally invasive or robotic cardiac surgery during Cardiopulmonary Bypass. With Aquabrid, I have a big advantage to achieve rapid hemostasis during CPB. The surgical sealant works excellent even under high pressure conditions.”

The bleeding incidence rate varies by type of cardiac surgery. Aortic procedures were associated with the highest bleeding complication rate (15.0%).3

Bleeding complications are associated
➜ higher risk of infection,
➜ in-hospital mortality,
➜ transfusion-related adverse events

Aquabrid effectively controls aortic bleeding

Aquabrid is supportive in achieving hemostasis, even under fully heparinized conditions.4 RCT results show:
