In a study looking at the tensile strength of
An experimental study evaluating staple line seam integrity at supraphysiologic intraluminal pressures in the immediate postoperative period with a canine model demonstrated:
Samples of PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix and SEAMGUARD material were placed in sterile saline and incubated at 37°C for 0, 7, 14, 21, or 28 days. The study showed no significant decrease in tensile strength over time with PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS.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.
PSD Gel Indications for Use:
PSD Gel is intended to be used only with PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS Collagen Matrix (PSDV) as a temporary bonding agent during applications indicated in the PSDV Instructions for Use.
PSD Gel Contraindications:
PSD Gel is not designed, sold, or intended for use except as indicated. Use only as a temporary bonding agent with PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS Collagen Matrix.
