Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgeries come with a special set of challenges. Baxter's haemostat, sealant and tissue repair products have the strength needed to address leakage, bleeding and access issues in bariatric procedures. Safer surgery and less time in the operating room means quicker recovery for each patient.



Key Procedures

Each bariatric procedure provides unique challenges that can cause complications for the healing process. Here are just a few examples.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Success of sleeve gastrectomies, like other bariatric procedures, relies on appropriate healing. PERI-STRIPS quickly reinforces the staple line and helps reduce the risk of leaks and bleeds that can occur during surgery1.
