Ease of Use
PERCLOT is ready to use in seconds, with no premixing required.2
Mechanism of Action
PERCLOT’s Absorbable Modified Polymer particles rapidly absorb water from the blood, accelerating the normal physiological clotting cascade.2
Additional Product Benefits
PERCLOT is 100% plant-based, eliminating the risk of disease transmission.3
PERCLOT can be used across multiple surgical specialties and approaches.2
Indications for Use
PERCLOT is indicated for use in surgical procedures (except neurological and ophthalmic) or injuries as an adjunct hemostat when control of bleeding from capillary, venous, or arteriolar vessels by pressure, ligature, and other conventional means is either ineffective or impractical.
Important Safety Information
Do not apply PERCLOT PHS into blood vessels as potential for embolization and death may exist. PERCLOT PHS is contraindicated in patients who are sensitive to starch or starch-derived materials.
PERCLOT PHS is not intended as a substitute for good surgical practice, and in particular, the proper use of conventional procedures (such as ligature) for hemostasis.
PERCLOT PHS is not recommended when an infection is suspected. PERCLOT PHS should be used with caution in contaminated areas. If signs of an infection develop in the site where
PERCLOT PHS has been used, surgery may be necessary to allow adequate drainage. Combined use of PERCLOT PHS with other topical hemostatic agents has not been studied in controlled clinical trials. Remove excess AMP® particles once hemostasis is achieved. This removal of excess particles is particularly important in and around the spinal cord, areas of bone confine, the optic nerve/chiasm, and foramina of bone because unsaturated particles may swell and compress the surrounding tissues.
PERCLOT PHS should not be mixed with methylmethacrylate or other acrylic adhesives as it may reduce the adhesive strength and compromise the attachment of prosthetic devices to bone tissue. Excess particles should be fully removed from bony surfaces by irrigation prior to the use of adhesives.
Safety and effectiveness of PERCLOT PHS have not been clinically evaluated in children and pregnant women. When PERCLOT PHS is used in the nasal cavity and laryngopharyngeal, PERCLOT PHS should be used with caution to avoid the dry particles being drawn into the trachea or bronchi, which may form a gel that blocks the trachea and bronchi.
PERCLOT PHS is a single use product. Do not use PERCLOT PHS in more than a single surgical procedure. PERCLOT PHS should not be used for controlling post-partum bleeding or menorrhagia. Safety and effectiveness in neurological and ophthalmic procedures has not been studied in controlled clinical trials.
