The impact and complexities of bleeding in surgery

Embracing the intricacies and impact of bleeding in surgery is the foundation of our vision across our hemostatic innovation.

Many patients today are entering the operating room with factors that can cause disruptive bleeding; creating both challenges for the staff and danger for the patient.

To better understand the bleeding situations that occur in the OR, we initiated a robust quantitative study across ~8,000 individual bleeding occasions, and 450 surgeons across 11 surgical specialties as a starting point.1

Ethicon’s evidence-based, Hemostasis Optimization Program (HOP) offers a systematic approach to surgical bleeding. It provides guidance on selecting the right adjunctive hemostat for the right bleeding site and situation. The program has been proven to reduce surgical variation, maximize efficiency and improve outcomes.2

Continuous Oozing

Continuous Oozing
 

This type of bleeding will not stop with simple compression or packing. It is more time consuming than difficult to address in a procedure.2

Difficult to Access

Difficult to Access
 

Bleeding that occurs in tight and irregular spaces. You cannot see the exact source of the bleed and you are concerned that accessing a tight space will cause more harm.2

Potential Re-Bleeding Risk

Potential Re-Bleeding Risk
 

This type of bleeding may be addressed intraoperatively, but could later develop into more serious complications, especially in high risk patients.2
 

Problematic Bleeding

Problematic Bleeding
 

This type of bleeding is accessible but could be trouble. It is more than routine, likely to be resistant to conventional means, requires immediate attention, and causes disruption to the normal progression of surgery.3
