Fibrin adheres to the wound surface and achieves sealing or gluing of tissues.
Polymerization takes approximately 60 seconds.
Adhere autologous skin grafts to surgically prepared wound beds resulting from burns.Tisseel
Adjunct to hemostasis in surgeries involving cardiopulmonary bypass and treatment of splenic injuries; adjunct in the closure of colostomies.
Intravascular administration; hypersensitivity to aprotinin or any component of the product; bovine protein hypersensitivity ( Tisseel ).
Topical Dose depends on size of surface being covered. The approximate surface areas covered by each package size are as follows: for approximate areas of skin graft fixation of 100, 200, and 500 cm 2 , the required package size is 2, 4, and 10 mL, respectively.
Consult package insert for directions for preparing fibrin sealant.Hemostasis in Surgeries; Colostomy Closure ( Tisseel only)Adults
Topical Dose depends on size of surface being covered. The approximate surface areas covered by each package size are as follows: for a maximum size area to be sealed of 8, 16, or 40 cm 2 or for maximum size area to be sealed using compressed gas of 100, 200, or 500 cm 2 , the required package size is 2, 4, and 10 mL, respectively.
Consult package insert for directions for preparing fibrin sealant.

Store at −4°F or less.Short-term
Thawed, unopened pouches may be stored for up to 48 h at room temperature (59° to 77°F) after removal from the freezer. Do not refrigerate or refreeze. After reconstitution of the solution and opening the package, fibrin sealant must be used within 4 h.
None well documented.
None well documented.
Bradycardia, hypotension, tachycardia, thromboembolic complications (postmarketing).
Pruritus, skin graft failure (more than 1%); dermal cyst, graph necrosis; urticaria (postmarketing).
Anaphylactic responses, hypersensitivity (postmarketing).
Dyspnea, mediastinal and thoracic disorders (postmarketing).
Edema, flushing, impaired healing, paralysis or other compression complications, pyrexia, seroma (postmarketing).
Category C .
Safety and efficacy not established in children younger than 1 yr of age.Tisseel
Safety and efficacy not established.
Clinical studies did not include subjects 65 years of age and older.Tisseel
No overall differences in safety and efficacy were observed between elderly and younger subjects.
Hypersensitivity, allergy, or anaphylactoid reactions may occur.
Apply fibrin sealant as a thin layer; excessive clot thickness may interfere with efficacy and the wound healing process.
When using Tisseel in cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, exercise caution to minimize the risk of inadvertent intravascular application.
Because fibrin sealant (human) is made from human plasma, there is a risk of transmitting infectious agents (eg, viruses), including Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
