Department of Defense Awards CryoLife $1.7 million to Develop BioFoam Hemostatic Technology
Date:4/6/2009

hich generates a mixed-cell foam. The foam creates a mechanical barrier to decrease blood flow and minimize pores for the blood to enter, leading to cellular aggregation and enhanced hemostasis. It is easily applied and could potentially be used intraoperatively to control internal organ hemorrhage, limit blood loss, and reduce the need for future operations in liver resections. BioFoam is based on the same technology as BioGlue(R), a CryoLife product approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration to control bleeding as an adjunct to sutures and staples in open surgical repair of large vessels. BioGlue is also CE marked in the European Community and approved in Canada and Australia for use in soft tissue repair.
