General Surgery

Baxter understands that colorectal teams are faced with ever-increasing complexities—from preventing post-operative leakage to reducing the risk of surgical site infections. Baxter's haemostat, sealant and tissue repair products were created to work across procedures to address those issues that stand in the way of patient healing.

Key Procedures

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

Controlling all types of bleeding is important during colectomy surgeries. When dealing with complete removal of the large intestine, FLOSEAL provides quick haemostasis (2 minutes median time to haemostasis)1 that can help to reduce the risk of costly bleeding related complications3.

Accessing the surgical site in a laparoscopic colostomy can be challenging, in addition to working in a contaminated field which leaves patients more susceptible to infection. The wide range of TISSEEL applicators provide solutions for these unique access challenges, allowing for precise application in the surgical field2.
