What is Presacral Bleeding?
In a case study published by the American Journal of Surgery, it is stated that “Presacral venous hemorrhage is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of rectal surgery. It is difficult to control presacral venous hemorrhage with conventional hemostatic measures and several alternative methods for hemostasis have been proposed.”. With this being said, conventional methods like digital occlusion with the index finger do not always suffice. This is where the Hemorrhage Occluder Pin becomes your most valuable tool in the O/R.
Hemorrhage Occluder Pins Save Time
Presacral bleeding is always a risk, but Hemorrhage Occluder Pins tackle this issue quickly and efficiently without needing to get creative on the spot. Chinese doctors at Changhai Hospital and Shanghai China. A study in China explains how massive bleeding from the presacral venous plexus and basivertebral veins were packed with gauze to stop bleeding, but once the gauze was removed, bleeding continued. In order to stop this blood loss, they needed to use two different methods.
- Kelly clamp was pressed over the point where blood loss occurred and an electrocautery device was used on maximum power to stop bleeding
- “Patients with massive bleeding from the presacral venous plexus, we used suture ligation around the venous plexus in the area with intact presacral fascia that communicated with the site of bleeding (surrounding suture ligation)”
There are alternative methods to stop presacral bleeding like those listed above, but if the Hemorrhage Occluder Pin was in their O/R, it would have been a “one and done” remedy for the blood loss. (Article Here)
