When Curaspon is applied to bleeding skin surfaces; it completely liquefies within 3 to 5 days. When Curaspon is implanted into the organism, it is completely absorbed in approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Reports have shown no abnormalities of the product, and no complaints relating to any contamination of the product were received whatsoever.
Curaspon gelatine sponges have a porous structure which activates the thrombocytes at the moment blood comes in contact with the matrix of the sponge. This causes the thrombocytes to release a series of substances which promote their aggregation at the same time as their surfaces change character, thus enabling them to act as a catalyst for the formation of the fibrin.
Curaspon is applicable dry or moistened with sterile physiological saline squeezed out before application.
