Traumastem FAM Strata

Sterile resorbable fibrous haemostat

Traumastem FAM Strata is sterile, fibrous, resorbable haemostatic medical device. As the structure of Strata is sufficiently strong, it can be sutured or cut when applied. The nonwoven form of the product allows its dividing into quantities needed for the application. The applicator makes it easy to place the haemostat also to sites which is otherwise poorly accessible. Traumastem FAM Strata provides a fast and effective local haemostasis, usually within 2 minutes; however, the time needed to achieve haemostasis depends on the type of operation and the intensity of bleeding. In vitro studies that examined the effect of oxidized cellulose on dermal fibroblasts have shown that oxidized cellulose leads to the direct stimulation of fibroblast proliferation, significantly increasing their metabolic activity. The high adsorbing capacity and the large specific surface of oxidized natural cellulose (cotton) contribute considerably to the haemostasis process. Following contact with blood, oxidized cellulose transforms into adhesive gel, which protects platelets from being washed out from the wound, thus stopping the bleeding faster. The product minimizes perioperative and early postoperative blood losses and complications, has significant antimicrobial effects, helps accelerate biochemical processes, and supports the healing process. It is atraumatic and 100% resorbable in the body within 6–8 days from application without any side effects. The absorption capacity of the product depends on several factors, in particular the quantity of the product used, blood saturation level and the character of tissue. Product residues do not cause any adverse late irritation at the site of application. During neurosurgical operations or if used in the vicinity of the spinal cord, brain or the optic nerve, leaving the haemostat in the surgical wound should be considered based on the surgeon’s experience. Although the textile is fully resorbable, it is always the physician’s responsibility to decide whether or not to leave the textile at the site of application. Traumastem FAM Strata not only exhibits in vitro antimicrobial effects against the microorganisms below (tested per USP, Chap. 51), but also meets the requirement for in vitro bactericidal effect on all tested microorganisms: Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE) Pseudomonas aeruginosa Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Escherichia coli Proteus vulgaris Enterococcus faecalis (VRE) Bacteroides fragilis Clostridium perfringens Klebsiella pneumoniae Candida albicans Aspergillus brasiliensis


Traumastem FAM Strata is used as an adjunct to stop capillary, venous, small arterial bleeding, and also to prevent early postoperative bleeding. It can be used in all areas of stopping diffuse haemorrhage from resection surfaces such as parenchymatous organs, muscles or defined body cavities, on uneven or poorly accessible surface of the wound. It can be used for a wide variety of actions – wrapping, layering, covering or filling cavities. The wide scope of application allows the use for classical, laparoscopic, robotic surgery and endoscopic treatments. Traumastem FAM Strata is made from single-layer nonwoven fabric, is compact, and can be used especially for endoscopic operations. Parts can be divided by tearing off or cutting, and simply adjusted to the most appropriate application size and thickness. Traumastem FAM Strata is thoroughly adaptable, and therefore excellent for conservative and mini-invasive treatments, mainly in urology, gynaecology, cardiovascular surgery, and general and peripheral vascular surgery.

Contraindication: Heavy venous or arterial bleeding, despite its demonstrable antibacterial effect, Traumastem FAM Strata is not intended as a replacement for systematically applied therapeutic or prophylactic antimicrobial agents.
