Traumastem TAF/TAF Light

Innovative and highly effective haemostatic reticulum

Traumastem TAF/TAF Light (Emoxicel TAF Reticulum/ TAF Retilight) is a highly effective haemostatic reticulum of oxidized cellulose. Traumastem TAF/TAF Light ensures fast and effective haemostasis, minimizes minimizes blood loss and complications perioperatively and in the early post-operative stages, eliminates the risk of a blood transfusions, has significant antibacterial activity, contributes to the acceleration of biochemical processes and enhances the healing process.

Traumastem TAF/TAF Light is a unique product for stopping capillary, venous and very minor arterial bleeding, for stopping diffuse haemorrhaging in the resection areas of organ parenchym, muscles or circumscribed body cavities. Due to its unique qualities such as higher flexibility, absorbability, adhesiveness and fast and effective haemostasis, it improves the techniques or surgery and reduces the costs of therapy. Traumastem TAF/TAF Liht is absolutely biodegradable, hundred percent biocompatible and atraumatic. It is perfectly absorbed by the body and therefore does not have to be removed from a wound which eliminates the risk of recurrent bleeding, traumatization of the patient and disruption of the healing process.

Traumastem TAF/TAF Light is fully biodegradable in up to 8 days. Its absorption depends upon several factors including the amount used, degree of saturation with blood, and the tissue bed.


Traumastem TAF/TAF Light is suitable for use in general and digestive surgery, plastic surgery, vascular and thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedics, gynaecology, urology, stomatology and other related fields. Its broad application range allows for use in traditional surgery, laparoscopy, robotic surgery as well as endoscopy. Traumastem TAF/TAF Light is suitable for stopping capillary, venous, minor arterial bleeding as well as to prevent bleeding in the early post-operative stage. Traumastem TAF/TAF Light can be used in all the ways of stopping diffuse haemorrhaging in the resection areas of organ parenchyma, muscles or circumscribed body cavities (such as small pelvis) without contraindications.

  • Neurological surgery – cranial vault bleeding in craniotomy and dura mater tears; spongiosa bleeding, e.g. after trepanations; dural bleeding after tumor removal; cranial dural haemorrhages; bleeding from brain parenchyma. Depending on the type of neurosurgery, the surgeon’s habits and experience, the haemostatic reticulum may be extracted once the haemorrhage has been stopped. When used around or in proximity of foramina in a bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, the brain and/or cranial nerves, attention should be paid to avoid overpacking (the reticulum can expand upon absorption of liquid), and creating the potential of neural damages.
  • Oncological surgery –Traumastem TAF Light is suitable for a wide range of applications after tumor removal, where the blood supply to tumor beds is very intensive and the risk of blood loss and subsequent blood transfer is high.
  • Thoracic and vascular surgery – haemorrhages that may occur in surgeries using extracorporeal circuit; following adhesiolysis of pericardial and pleura adhesions during pericardectomy; bleeding from sutural channels, i.e. after vascular anastomoses; thoracic wall surgeries; haemorrhage of lung parenchyma injury or resection; treatment of tumor bed bleeding; epicardial bleeding after detachment of adhesions surrounding the heart
  • Plastic surgery – cosmetic operations; in complex reconstructive procedures; the reconstruction of pallatum; post-traumatic skin reactions, burns, bleeding from in donor bone graft extraction sites; spongionsa bleeding; oral mucosa bleeding; following tumor resections; to stop exudation and enhance the healing process
  • Urological surgery – treatment of tumor bleeding; parenchyma surgeries; prostatectomy and hysterectomy; after removal of cervical carcinomas; after removal of fibroids
  • Soft tissue surgery – applicable to wounds in liver after resection; in cholecystectomy; as a supportive measure in liver ruptures; liver biopsy; rectal surgery; following the detachment of adhesions; ruptures of splenic capsule; thyroid gland surgery; to stop wound exudation and enhance the healing process
  • Gynaecology – haemorrhage during operative procedures of the uterus and cervix uteri (conization); adhesiolysis of adhesions of the small pelvis and Douglas Space; tumor bleeding; hysterectomy; after removal of cervical carcinomas
  • Stomatology – treatment of post-extraction wounds; in maxillofacial surgeries; for suppression of inflammatory complications

Contraindication: stopping of arterial bleeding

Clinical studies

The Application of Absorbable Haemostyptic Traumastem TAF in Oncogynaecology


The clinical tests were carried out at Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute in Brno. The preparation was tested on 58 cases. The study proved the excellent effectiveness, broad application range, safety and easy applicability of Traumastem TAF in oncological surgical practice…

Clinical Comparison of Haemostatic Preparations


The study was carried out at Bakešova Hospital in Brno, Czech Republic (Bakešova nemocnice v Brně) over 18 months and concerned the comparison of Traumastem T and Traumastem TAF. The preparations were applied in 35 cases.

Ambulatory Excision of Perianal Duplicatures

In our study we proved that ambulatory excision of perianal duplicatures is an effective method for removal of patient´s problems and, by keeping of all determined principles, has a minimum of complications. With this method we successfully use Traumastem preparations both for acute bleeding haemostasia on wound areas and to support the healing. Compared with the control group, these preparations significantly improve haemostasia and support or rather accelerate the healing.
