OBJECTIVE: To report our initial experience with oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC; Surgicel Fibrillar) as a hemostatic adjunct during inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Beginning in April 2016, ORC pledgets were placed within the corporotomy closures of all men undergoing IPP insertion. Perioperative characteristics and outcomes including cumulative postoperative drain output were evaluated among consecutive cases with (April 2016 to October 2016) and without ORC (December 2015 to March 2016) using an identical surgical technique by a single surgeon...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Because the invasive procedure of colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) entails a extensive mucosal defect and submucosal exposure, the procedure may have a substantial risk of complications including delayed bleeding, perforation and bacteremia and/or endotoxemia. The aim of our study was to investigate whether Surgicel(®) would be effective in reducing complications after colorectal ESD. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2012 and 2013, 52 consecutive patients who underwent a colorectal ESD were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: The use of hemostatic agents has increased over time for all surgical procedures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the newer topical absorbable hemostat products Surgicel * Fibrillar † and Surgicel SNoW ‡ (Surgicel advanced products, abbreviated as SAPs) compared to the older product Surgicel Original (SO) with respect to healthcare resource use and costs in procedures where these hemostats are most commonly used. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the Premier hospital database was used to identify adults who underwent brain/cerebral (BC), cardiovascular (CV: valve surgery and coronary artery bypass graft) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) between January 2011-December 2012...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The objective of this study was to compare the viability of cartilage grafts embedded in platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) wrapped with no material (bare diced cartilage grafts), oxidized methylcellulose (Surgicel), or acellular dermal tissue (AlloDerm). STUDY DESIGN: Experimental study. METHODS: In this study, six New Zealand rabbits were used. Cartilage grafts including perichondrium were excised from each ear and diced into 2-mm-by 2-mm pieces...

A variety of techniques have been used to stop venous bleeding from the spinal epidural space. These generally consist of packing with Surgicel®, fibrillar collagen or Gelfoam®. Bipolar coagulation may also be used to control bleeding from spinal venous plexus, but it may bear the risk of healthy nervous tissue injury: dissipation of heat from the tips of the bipolar forceps may induce thermal injury to adjacent neural structures. In the case of intraspinal bleeding, quick and safe hemostasis is mandatory to ensure adequate visualization and safe preparation so as to avoid damaging nerves and spinal medulla...

OBJECTIVE: Oxidized regenerated cellulose is a hemostatic agent used in surgery to control bleeding. Some case reports have suggested that it could lead to a mistaken diagnosis of abscess on postoperative CT scan. The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of CT scan for Surgicel® Fibrillar. STUDY DESIGN: We prospectively registered all patients who had Surgicel® Fibrillar left in the operative site during one year. Patients who had a CT scan for medical reasons (e...

BACKGROUND: Oxidized regenerated cellulose is commonly used in many surgical fields as a hemostatic agent. Complications related to swelling or compression after application of small portions of Surgicel® Fibrillar™ have not yet been described. PATIENTS: We report on a 65-year-old woman who was operated for a high-grade spinal stenosis at the L2-L3 level. Small portions of Surgicel® Fibrillar™ were used to control bleeding from the epidural venous plexus. The immediate postoperative course was uneventful...

BACKGROUND: Presacral venous hemorrhage is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of rectal surgery. It is difficult to control presacral venous hemorrhage with conventional hemostatic measures and several alternative methods for hemostasis have been proposed. We described our experience of using the combination of a hemostatic matrix and an absorbable hemostat as an alternative method of hemostasis. METHODS: From September 2007 to March 2009, 83 patients underwent rectal surgery for cancer, ulcerative colitis, or familial adenomatous polyposis...

There are various electrical, mechanical and chemical methods used to achieve haemostasis in spine surgery. Chemical haemostatic agents are often preferable to bipolar cautery in intraspinal procedures, because these products control bleeding without occluding the vessel lumen and cause no thermal injuries to adjacent structures. A topical haemostat is the often the technique of choice to control bleeding from bone and to diffuse capillary and epidural venous oozing. This paper focuses on technical aspects of the application of absorbable porcine gelatine and regenerated, oxidised cellulose...

BACKGROUND: The emergence of multi-drug resistant microorganisms presents a critical problem for patients undergoing surgery. Acidic pH, which is produced by oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC), is a broad-spectrum physiological detriment to survival of microorganisms known to cause surgical infections. The purpose of this study was to examine the antimicrobial effect of ORC against antibiotic-resistant organisms. METHODS: ORC products were challenged with ATCC reference strains and clinical isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (PRSP), and non-resistant ATCC strains of S...
