ArterX® Surgical Sealant
A unique prophylactic sealant that seals within 10~15 seconds upon clamp release. 1

 

ArterX® Surgical Sealant is a novel prophylactic agent that seals anastomotic suture lines in seconds. The sealant quickly sets into a soft gel that contains a unique cross-linking agent to provide strong covalent bonding between tissues and to effectively seal grafts.

 

ArterX® Self-Mixing Syringe system: The sealant's two components are mixed and applied using a self-mixing syringe system that provides easy, precise placement of the sealant.
