Indication

Collatamp G is used for local haemostasis of capillary, parenchymatous and seeping haemorrhages in areas with a high risk of infection.1

This product contains gentamicin sulphate at a locally effective dose.1
Systemically effective therapeutic blood or plasma levels are not generally achieved.1

Properties

Haemostasis is triggered when blood comes into contact with released tissue factors and exposed endogenous collagen fibrils or renatured collagen fibrils like those in Collatamp G. The adhesion and aggregation of platelets is induced on the renatured collagen fibrils of Collatamp G and the plasmatic coagulation process is accelerated.1

The sponge-like structure of Collatamp G stabilises the wound clot, Collatamp G taking up a certain amount of blood. Collagen also promotes granulation and epithelialisation.1

Collatamp G is absorbed quickly and completely. Gentamicin is added to help prevent any infections that might occur at the site of implantation.1
