Treatment: Surgery - Standard of Care

Experimental: Fibrin Pad -

Active Comparator: Standard of Care -


Other interventions: Fibrin Pad
Fibrin Pad is a sterile bio-absorbable combination product consisting of two constituent parts— a flexible matrix and a coating of two biological components (Human Fibrinogen and Human Thrombin).

Treatment: Surgery: Standard of Care
Standard of Care is a composite of techniques/methods typically used by the surgeon to control severe bleeding.

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Subjects >= 18 years of age, requiring elective, open, abdominal, retroperitoneal,
pelvic or thoracic (non-cardiac) surgical procedures;

- Presence of an appropriate severe bleeding soft tissue Target Bleeding Site (TBS) as
identified intra-operatively by the surgeon;

- Subjects must be willing to participate in the study, and provide written informed
consent.
Minimum age
18 Years
Maximum age
No limit
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Subjects with any intra-operative findings identified by the surgeon that may preclude
conduct of the study procedure;

- Bleeding site is from large defects in arteries or veins where the injured vascular
wall requires repair with maintenance of vessel patency and which would result in
persistent exposure of the FP to blood flow and pressure during healing and absorption
of the product;

- Subject with TBS within an actively infected field;

- Bleeding site is in, around, or in proximity to foramina in bone, or areas of bony
confine;

- Subjects with known intolerance to blood products or to one of the components of the
study product;

- Subjects unwilling to receive blood products;

- Subjects with known immunodeficiency diseases (including known HIV);

- Subjects who are known, current alcohol and / or drug abusers;

- Subjects who have participated in another investigational drug or device research
study within 30 days of enrollment;

- Female subjects who are pregnant or nursing.

Summary
Brief summary
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and hemostatic effectiveness of the
Fibrin Pad (FP) versus standard of care treatment (SoC) in controlling challenging severe
soft tissue bleeding during abdominal, pelvic, retroperitoneal, and (non-cardiac) thoracic
surgery.
