Clinisponge is a sterile, implantable, absorbable gelatin sponge with haemostatic effect. Clinisponge is indicated for surgical procedur to stop capillary, venous bleeding and oozing when conventional methods are impractical and inefficient.
Clinisponge is produced from pharmaceutical purified gelatin. The sponge has an uniform porosity and reacts naturally to coagulation process. Due to its structure, blood platelets are caught and the coagulation cascade is activated; transforming soluble fibrinogen into a net of insoluble fibrin which stops the bleeding.
Clinisponge is absorbed completely within 3-4 weeks when implanted into the tissue, however; the amount of usage, depending on the applied field to absorb may change.
Clinisponge is a natur and biocompatible product; well tolerated by the tissue.
Clinisponge is double blister packaged and sterilized by gamma irridiation.

200 x 70 x 0.5 mm
To achieve hemostasis in plastic surgery, vascular surgery and neurosurgery on the large surfaces or hard to reach areas.
30 x 10 x 10 mm
Is suitable for the fistula in dialysis procedur.
80 x Ø x 30 mm
Is used mainly in anorectal surgery to achive fast haemostasis in haemorrhoidectomies, anal fistula and fissures.

The Dental cube is used dry or soaked in sterile physiological saline solution to achieve
haemostasis in cavities after tooth extraction, root amputations, removal of cysts etc. in dental / oral surgery, mandibular /maxillar surgeries.
The powder is suitable to use to irregular surfaces such as in orthopaedics surgery. It may be used dry or soaked with sterile physiological saline and by kneading a putty like paste is prepared. The resulting doughy paste may be smeared or pressed on the bleeding surface to control of the bleeding.
