Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male and Female subjects requiring non-emergent retroperitoneal or intra-abdominal surgical procedures
  • Presence of an appropriate soft-tissue target bleeding site (challenging bleeding site for which topical hemostatic adjuncts might typically be used) as identified intra-operatively by the surgeon
  • Subjects must be willing to participate in the study and provide written informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects undergoing emergency surgery
  • Parenchymal or anastomotic bleeding sites will not be considered for randomization
  • Subjects with any intra-operative findings identified by the surgeon that may preclude conduct of the study procedure
  • Subjects with known intolerance to blood products or to one for the components of the study product
  • Subjects unwilling to receive blood products
  • Subjects with known autoimmune 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
