Absorbable hemostatic materials

Absorbable hemostatic materials have emerged as standard tools in neurosurgery.

Covering the neurosurgical field with hemostatic material helps to prevent hematoma due to wound bleeding.

The development of absorbable homeostatic materials to cover the surgery bed overcame the risks associated with electrocoagulation, while effectively achieving control of slight, especially oozing, bleeding. The currently available absorbable homeostatic materials, including gelatin sponge, Surgicel™, and microfiber collagen, are considered suitable for clinical application due to their observed tissue compatibility.
