4DryField® PH is an innovative medical device for adhesion prevention and hemostasis that can be used in a wide range of surgical indications. Due to its physical properties, 4DryField® PH absorbs many times its own mass in liquid within a few seconds.
These are manufactured from highly purified potato starch in a complex process. 4DryField® PH contains no components whatsoever of animal or human origin. It is biocompatible, pyrogen-free, and hypoallergenic. Therefore, 4DryField® PH meets the stringent requirements for a Class III medical device.
There are no known side effects up to now. Occasionally, there may be a temporary increase in CRP with no leukocytosis and no increase in temperature.
4DFLap™ is both a rigid and a flexible and bendable single use applicator for manual administration of 4DryField® PH by physicians or medical-technical specialists in cases in which bleeding from arterioles, capillaries, or veins during surgical interventions or in the case of injuries cannot or cannot effectively be controlled by conventional measures.
4DFLapTM is also used for manual administration of 4DryField® PH by physicians or medical-technical specialists when the formation of post-operative adhesions is to be prevented following surgical interventions in cavities with a mesothelial (or mesothelial-like) lining.
