What is a Microfibrillar Collagen Hemostat?

A Microfibrillar Collagen Hemostat (MCH) is an active absorbable collagen hemostat that helps speed up the process of clot formation, commonly used in surgeries to control bleeding and it is indicated for all surgical procedures.

Topical hemostats include collagens, gelatin sponges, fibrin sealants and active thrombin preparations. These agents help control and stop constant blood flow. Topical hemostatic products are gelatin, collagen, cellulose, and polysaccharide based.

Avitene (Davol) and Ultrafoam (Davol) are well known for Bovine collagen products. They can be used in all surgical procedures. Avitene is available in two different options: flour and sheets. The flour is sticky to gloves and surgical instruments.

Avitene Microfibrillar Collagen Hemostat Available at CIA Medical

Avitene Microfibrillar Collagen Hemostat (MCH) and Avitene UltraFoam sponge are both options at CIA Medical.

  • Avitene MCH and Avitene UltraFoam sponge should not be used in the closure of skin incisions as they may interfere with the healing of the skin edges.
  • It has been reported with other collagen hemostatic agents, that by filling porosities of cancellous bone, they may significantly reduce the bond strength of methyl methacrylate adhesives. Avitene MCH and Avitene UltraFoam sponge should not, therefore, be employed on bone surfaces to which prosthetic materials are to be attached with methyl methacrylate adhesives.

Warnings when using an MCH

  • Avitene MCH and Avitene UltraFoam are inactivated by autoclaving.
  • Ethylene oxide reacts with bound hydrochloric acid to form ethylene chlorohydrin.
  • These devices have been designed for single use only.
  • Do not reuse, re-process, re-sterilize or repackage. Risks of compromising the structural integrity and/or essential material and design characteristics that are critical to the overall performance of the devices and may lead to device failure which may result in injury to the patient.
  • Reuse, reprocessing, resterilization or repackaging may also create a risk of infection, including, but not limited to, the transmission of infectious diseases from one patient to another. Contamination of the devices may lead to injury, illness or death of the patient or end user.

Do not use it if the product is opened, or damaged.

  • Moistening Avitene MCH or wetting with saline or thrombin impairs its hemostatic efficacy. It should be used dry.
  • As with any foreign substance, use of Avitene MCH and Avitene UltraFoam in contaminated wounds may enhance infection.
  • Avitene UltraFoam sponge should not be used in instances of pumping arterial hemorrhage.
  • Avitene UltraFoam should not be used where blood or other fluids have pooled, or in cases where the point of hemorrhage is submerged as it may mask an underlying source of bleeding, resulting in hematoma.
  • Avitene UltraFoam sponge will not act as a tampon or plug in a bleeding site, nor will it close off an area of blood collecting behind a tampon.
  • Avitene UltraFoam sponge is not intended to treat systemic coagulation disorders.
  • Avitene MCH and Avitene UltraFoam are not for injection, intraocular or intravascular use.

Adverse Reactions of Avitene MCH

  • The most serious adverse reaction reported which may be related to the use of Avitene MCH or other collagen products can cause infections, including abscess formation, hematoma, wound dehiscence and mediastinitis.
  • Other reported adverse reactions possibly related are adhesion formation, allergic reaction, foreign body reaction and subgaleal seroma (report of a single case) and increased incidence of alveolalgia when used for packing of dental extraction sockets.
  • Transient laryngospasm due to aspiration of dry material has been reported following use of Avitene MCH in tonsillectomy.
