Hemostat Puts Pressure on Hemorrhagic Control


February 21, 2008

Arista AH absorbable hemostasis powder is indicated for most surgeries including cardiac, thoracic, orthopedic, spinal and general applications. It is instantly ready to use, requiring no mixing, no addition of patient blood or other components and no special handling or storage conditions.

Arista AH is a plant-derived, flowable powder engineered to rapidly dehydrate blood, enhancing clotting on contact. It facilitates the formation of a highly resilient, natural clot within just a few minutes, regardless of the patient's coagulation status. The formulation has reportedly been shown to provide simpler, faster application and its rapid absorption - within 24 to 48 hours - leads to little risk of associated complications or infection, according to the company.
