Objective: To explore the effectiveness of Omni-Stat(®) (Chitosan) in a model of major haemorrhage in the presence of clotting dysfunction. Method: A total of 12 major femoral artery bleeds in moderately heparinised swine treated with Omni-Stat(®) (Chitosan) were compared with five control bleeds. Results: Haemostasis was successfully achieved at first treatment in 10 of 12 bleeds and at second treatment in the remaining two bleeds. Conclusion: The study supports the evidence that Omni-Stat(®) (Chitosan) acts independently of classical clotting pathways and should be effective in patients with clotting dysfunctions, who suffer major haemorrhage. It also suggests the potential for a role in cardiac surgery.
