Gel-Flow NT has hemostatic properties. While its mode of action is not fully understood,its effect appears to be more physical than the result of altering the blood
clotting mechanism. When not used in excessive amounts, Gel-Flow NT is absorbed completely, with little tissue reaction. This absorption is dependent on several factors, including the amount used, degree of saturation with blood or other fluids, and the site of use.
When placed in soft tissues, Gel Flow NT is usually absorbed completely in four tosix weeks, without inducing excessive scar tissue. When applied to bleeding nasal,rectal or vaginal mucosa, it liquefies within two to five days.
Hemostasis: GEL-FLOW NTis indicated in surgical procedures, including those involving cancellous bone bleeding, as a hemostatic device, when control of capillary, venous, and arteriolar bleeding by
pressure, ligature, and other conventional procedures is either ineffective or impractical. Although not necessary, GEL-FLOW NT can be used either with or without thrombin to obtain hemostasis.
