What Is It?

StatSeal ADVANCED is a topical hemostatic powder for temporary external control of bleeding from sheath and catheter removals.  Available in powder or disc form, the ingredients are a hydrophilic polymer and potassium ferrate.

Powder + Pressure = Seal

As an adjunct to manual pressure, StatSeal forms a physical seal through agglomeration of blood solids and proteins along with simultaneous rapid dehydration of the blood.

The Benefits of StatSeal ADVANCED

Reduces hold times

  • Does not rely on the body’s clotting cascade
  • Seal forms instantly and strengthens with pressure and time
  • The seal stays with the patient

Improves Outcomes

  • Increases patient comfort and satisfaction
  • Allows for re-access of the site
  • Non-allergenic, non-irritant
  • Improves facility throughput

Efficient and Cost-effective

  • Less expensive than pads, patches and closure devices
  • Versatile – can be used for femoral access, radial access or fistulas
  • Saves staff time

StatSeal ADVANCED achieved hemostasis in less than two minutes for venous access and four minutes for arterial procedures based on results from a randomized controlled clinical study. StatSeal effectively reduced time to hemostasis with minimal associated complications (hematoma, rebleeds). StatSeal is superior to the control (D-Stat) in reducing time to hemostasis.*
