Haemostyptics from pure collagen

The MBP products Surgicoll and Diacoll Collagen as a haemostyptic agent

Topical haemostyptics form a modern standard for the treatment of e.g. oozing haemorrhages. These haemostyptics are characterised above all by their efficiency. Collagens are among the most efficient topical haemostyptics and offer a possibility for sustainable wound care thanks to their excellent tissue compatibility and rapid absorption.

The functioning of haemostyptics made from collagen is based on different mechanisms:

  • Promote blood clotting: Collagen is able to activate platelets. Platelets are small cells in the blood that reach the wound site when the blood vessel is injured and interact with each other and the surrounding tissue to stop the bleeding.
  • Formation of a clot: By activating platelets and interacting with the surrounding tissue, collagen promotes the formation of a temporary clot. This clot closes the wound and thus stops the bleeding.
  • Promoting wound healing: Collagen also has positive effects on the healing process. It is an important building block for the formation of new tissue, as it promotes the migration of cells responsible for the repair and regeneration of the injured tissue.
  • Biological absorption: Collagen haemostyptics are absorbed by the body over time. This happens through the body’s own enzymes, which break down the collagen into smaller molecules and then metabolise them.
  • Reduced operation time compared to oxidised regenerated cellulose
