Your choice in hemostasis
Sangustop® is a highly efficient felt-like hemostat. It is composed of native absorbable collagen fibrils of bovine origin; in addition, Sangustop® contains riboflavin.
Collagen and Coagulation: Scientific Evidence
Ever since the 70’s , collagen is a well-known initiator of platelet aggregation and thus an accelerator of hemostasis.  
Schematic representation of hemostasis mechanism:
A: Damage to blood vessels (accidentally or during surgery)
B: Immediate vasoconstriction and exposure of collagen fibers to blood
C: Adhesion of platelets to collagen
Collagen is a biocompatible material that can be absorbed by the body within approximately 3 weeks as a result of phagocytosis and enzymatic degradation.

Easy handling in Open and Minimal Invasive Surgery
- Ready to use approach: no need of pretreatment steps
- Excellent adhesion to bleeding surfaces: just light pressure onto the wound
- Both sides equally active: simple positioning of the product
- Adaptable to any type of structure: from plain surfaces to anastomoses
- Very easy to use in minimal invasive surgery: Sangustop® maintains consistency after being introduced through the trocar
