PROVIDES HEMOSTASIS – PREVENTS ADHESIONS
4DryField® PH is an innovative product concerning Hemostasis plus Adhesions prevention for several surgical fields of application. 4DryField® PH is an absorbable starch powder for application to surgical wounds by physicians or medical-technical specialists.
4DryField® PH consists of hydrophilic microparticles produced from purified starch of plant-based origin. 4DryField® PH is ready-to-use and can be applied directly to bleeding or oozing surfaces. The free flowing properties of 4DryField® PH permit simple and safe application during surgical interventions.
4DryField® PH absorbs within seconds a multiple of its own mass of water, which induces two effects:
Hemostasis plus Adhesion prevention combined in one medical device.
Hemostasis: Rapid water absorption transforms the wound blood into the patient’s own “fibrin glue” formatting a highly efficient coagulum to the wound.
Adhesions prevention: In presence of water 4DryField® PH particles form a gel, which acts as a temporary mechanical barrier preventing adhesion formation.
4DryField® PH does not contain any components of animal or human origin. It is biocompatible, free of pyrogens and allergens.
Side effects have not been reported.
