Autologous fibrin glue reinforced by platelets in surgery of ascending aorta

Published in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon. 2004, vol. 52, no. 4, p. 225-9
Abstract Fibrin sealants are popular for the improvement of perioperative hemostasis and reducing blood transfusion needs. Biological glues prepared from pooled human donor plasma have an inherent risk of transmission of blood-borne disease and are quite expensive to use. A system for the production of autologous fibrin sealant re-enforced by platelets has been developed. Its efficacy, safety and economic benefits have been evaluated in a prospective, randomized study.
