As a non-cross-linked collagen matrix, the VERITAS Technology has been demonstrated to be more effective than synthetic buttress materials for bleeding.1*
VERITAS Collagen Matrix and a synthetic polymer buttress DUET material were compared to two commonly used hemostatic agents SYVEK and SURGICEL hemostats with gauze as the control. An accepted hemostasis model was used to evaluate the intrinsic bleeding reduction properties in conjunction with mechanical compression, and showed that the VERITAS Technology provided:1*
*Pre-clinical data results may not correlate to results in humans.
Indications for Use
PSDV Reinforcement is intended for use as a prosthesis for the surgical repair of soft tissue deficiencies using surgical staplers when staple line reinforcement is needed.
(Circular reinforcement only) PSDV Reinforcement can be used for reinforcement of staple lines during gastric, bariatric, and small bowel procedures.
(Linear reinforcement only) PSDV Reinforcement can be used for reinforcement of staple lines during lung and bronchus resections and during bariatric surgical procedures, and during gastric, small bowel, mesentery, colon, and colorectal procedures.
Selected Important Risk Information
Ensure the staple line is completely covered with the buttress or inadequate coverage after firing may result.
Do not get the buttress wet before applying Gel, or the buttress may not adhere to the stapler properly.
Ensure the anvil and cartridge sides of the loading unit are on the corresponding stapler jaws or the buttress may not adhere to the stapler properly.
