Overview

As many as 58% of lung surgery patients develop an air leak in the OR1, and more than 15% develop a persistent air leak after surgery lasting more than 7 days.2 Progel™ Pleural Air Leak Sealant is the only sealant designed and indicated to treat air leaks during thoracic surgery.3

In addition, Tridyne™ Vascular Sealant offers surgeons a unique solution to control bleeding during aortic surgery when adjunctive measures are required.
