BD sealants are designed to meet the needs of clinicians in thoracic and aortic surgery.
As many as 58% of lung surgery patients develop an air leak in the OR1, and more than 15% develop a persistent air leak after surgery lasting more than 7 days.2 Progel? Pleural Air Leak Sealant is the only sealant designed and indicated to treat air leaks during thoracic surgery.3
In addition, Tridyne? Vascular Sealant offers surgeons a unique solution to control bleeding during aortic surgery when adjunctive measures are required.
Clinically proven to seal air leaks and reduce length of stay by 1.9 days on average2
Clinically proven to perform under pressure1
