In the MedMarket Diligence report #S175, we characterize by clinical specialty the types of value offered by surgical sealants, glues, hemostats and other wound closure and surgical securement products.
- Category I: Important and Enabling
Important to prevent excessive bleeding and transfusion, to ensure safe procedure, and to avoid mortality and to avoid complications associated with excessive bleeding and loss of blood.
- Category II: Improved Clinical Outcome
Reduces morbidity due to improved procedure, reduced surgery time, and prevention of complications such as fibrosis, post-surgical adhesion formation, and infection (includes adjunct to minimally invasive surgery).
- Category III: Cost-Effective and Time-Saving
Immediate reduction in surgical treatment time and follow-up treatments.
- Category IV: Aesthetic and Perceived Benefits
Selection is driven by aesthetic and perceived benefits, resulting in one product being favored over a number of medically equivalent treatments.
