Fluid Leakage Reduction in Hepato-Pancreas-Biliary Surgery
Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery is a challenging branch of general surgery. Post-operative recovery is commonly impacted by complications from bleeding and fluid leakage, which can result in infection, abdominal abscesses and sepsis, leading to prolonged hospital stays and diminished quality of life.
There is currently no approved, clinically effective treatment options to reduce fluid leakage after HPB procedures. There is a vital need for easy-to-use sealants capable of reducing fluid leakage into the abdominal cavity and controlling post-operative bleeding and leakage.
