Starsil Hemostat 2in1

STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is a CE-marked class 3 medical device that can be used to achieve rapid hemostasis for profuse and diffuse bleedings as well as reliable adhesion prevention — even in difficult to reach regions.

Why is Adhesion Prevention important?

  • Adhesions are the primary causes for long-term complications after any type of abdominal surgery.1
  • Complications include bowel obstruction, infertility, difficulties at reoperations and chronic (pelvic) pain.1
  • Minimal invasive surgery alone does not fully alleviate the burden of adhesion-related complications.1
  • Reduction of postoperative adhesion formation is highly demanded: Each year more than 440,000 interventions were performed for removal of abdominal and pelvic adhesions in the United States, creating numerous risks to the health of the patient and costs of $ 1.2 billion/year.2

Unlike many other anti–adhesive products STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is easy to administrate both during open and laproscopic surgery. The STARSIL® HEMOSTAT powder is simply generously applied on the mesothelial defect or tissue that needs protection subsequently moistened with sterile saline solution. The polysaccharide particles absorb the fluid and form a dense gelatinous barrier preventing the contact with other tissue during the critical postoperative healing phase.


The use of STARSIL HEMOSTAT® as topical hemostat provides atraumatic bleeding control and can minimize the use of electrocautery limiting thermal injury to the tissue.

When complete hemostasis is achived a second application of STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is used to form a gelatinous adhesion prevention barrier covering the whole affected tissue before closure.


STARSIL® HEMOSTAT can be stored in the OR at room temperature and doesn‘t need preparation or assembling.
Break and remove the cap and STARSIL® HEMOSTAT is ready to use.
