Management of postoperative bleeding in surgically debrided wounds: topical haemostat versus electrocautery

We are please to announce that new evidence supporting the use of our hemostatic granules in wound debridement has been published by the Journal of Wound Care. Journal articles are rigorously peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts and we are thrilled this article was accepted for publication. The publication was lead by wound care experts from The Wound Treatment Center, LLC at Opelousas General Health in Lafayette, LA which demonstrates the effectiveness of OMNI-STAT in achieving hemostasis while also saving time and thus offers potential for increased cost-effectiveness, relative to electrocautery. You can find the full publication in the Journal of Wound Care here.

Abstract

Objective:

To compare the effectiveness of a temporary topical external haemostat (OMNI-STAT Granules, Omni-stat Medical Inc., US) versus the use of electrocautery for bleeding control in patients who have undergone surgical wound debridement. Time saved in the operating room (OR) was evaluated.

Method:

A prospective evaluation of use of a topical haemostat in an OR setting was compared with retrospective data collected using electrocautery to understand the time-saving benefits of using a topical haemostat versus electrocautery.

Results:

A total of 52 patients were treated with the topical haemostat, and 89 patients with electrocautery. The topical haemostat was shown to be as effective in achieving haemostasis post-surgical debridement as electrocautery, with the added benefits of significant time savings in the OR (reducing the mean total OR time by 19.1%). Additionally, preprocedure and surgical procedure times in patients treated with the topical haemostat were significantly reduced. The results showed that wounds treated with the topical haemostat demonstrated a more advanced stage of healing, which may be a result of the lack of tissue damage demonstrated with the topical haemostat compared with electrocautery.

Conclusion:

This study found that the temporary topical haemostat was equally as effective as cauterisation in achieving haemostasis. In addition, significant saving in OR time was demonstrated relative to electrocautery. The improved OR times may translate into increased cost-effectiveness, relative to electrocautery, by increasing the number of surgical cases per day and/or using resources more effectively to treat more patients. It may also enable bleeding control in the outpatient clinic or at the bedside, freeing up costly OR time and enabling more effective management of healthcare resources.
