Artiss (Fibrinogen / Thrombin Human) - Summary



ARTISS [Fibrin Sealant], Vapor Heated, Solvent Detergent Treated, (ARTISS) is a two-component fibrin sealant made from pooled human plasma. When combined, the two components, Sealer Protein (Human) and Thrombin (Human), mimic the final stage of the blood coagulation cascade.

ARTISS is indicated to adhere autologous skin grafts to surgically prepared wound beds resulting from burns in adult and pediatric populations.

ARTISS is not indicated for hemostasis.

Clinical Trials Related to Artiss (Fibrinogen / Thrombin Human)

Efficacy and Safety of ARTISS for Flap Adherence in Abdominoplasty [Recruiting]

A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of ARTISS Human Fibrin Sealant as Used in External Rhinoplasty [Recruiting]
Rhinoplasty (nasal reconstruction i. e. "a nose job") is a surgical procedure performed on the nose to correct a medical problem or change the appearance of the nose. During the healing process, swelling and/or bruising is likely to occur. A drug called ARTISS Fibrin Sealant may or may not lessen these effects. This study is looking to see the effects of ARTISS on adhering tissue and improving wound healing in an external rhinoplasty. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of rhinoplasty using ARTISS compared to rhinoplasty without using ARTISS in patients undergoing rhinoplasty performed through an external approach.
