Fibrin sealants are utilised by surgeons as an adjunct to haemostasis for use in patients undergoing surgery, when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques is ineffective or impractical.
Fibrin clots can contribute to the local haemostasis, seal capillaries and lymph vessels, provide full surface adherence, eliminate dead spaces and may reduce the need for drains.
