THE LAPROSPONGE PVA SURGICAL SPONGE
The Laprosponge is a deployable PVA sponge with recovery system for laparoscopic surgery. These are some of the in-use benefits of the Laprosponge and PVA technology:
- Laprosponge can be applied to the desired surgical site and left for the duration of the procedure without additional attention until its recovery – allowing the surgeon to focus on the procedure at hand.
- The PVA material has a very high absorption rate to help maintain a clean operative field by controlling blood oozing and persistent bleeding.
- Thanks to the PVA’s hydrophilic capacity, excess fluid will be extracted from the blood solution resulting in a higher remaining concentration of coagulation factors helping support hemostasis.
- The smooth contact surface layer of PVA foam together with its affinity to fibrin will support fibrinogen polymerization and sealing of the bleeding and support clean removal of the device at the end of the procedure.
