Vetiwax

Bioabsorbable Bone Hemostasis Material for Veterinary

Description 

What is Vetiwax™ ?

  • A synthetic implant material, made from biodegradable polymers
  • Immediate bone hemostasis by acting as a mechanical barrier
  • Dissolves and is excreted completely from the animal body

Benefits of Vetiwax™

  • No inhibition of bone regeneration
  • No contain of animal products or beeswax: avoids the inflammation associated with beeswax
  • Vetiwax works by creating a mechanical barrier to stop bleeding during the operating procedure. 
  • It then simply dissolves and is completely excreted from the body ; Vetiwax dissolves completely from the site of application typically within 48 hours. 
  • This means that there is nothing left of the hemostat to inhibit bone healing or to act as a nidus for infection.

How to use

  • It requires no mixing and is used straight from its sterile foil packet. Simply warm by kneading in the sterile gloved hand and then apply by pressing into the bone. It should be applied to a thickness of 1 to 2 mm.
  • VetiwaxTM is available in 2 sizes : a 2.5g bar for general surgery and a 4g bar suitable for major bone surfaces. 
  • It is supplied in boxes of 12 bars (2.5g) or 10 bars (4g).
  • Veti-WaxTM may be used on all bleeding from bone surface.

In vivo Efficacy and Bio-absorption of Vetiwax™

  • Efficacy and safety evaluation of VetiWaxTM
  • Rat calvaria defect model (SD rats, Male, Total n=108)
  • Studied at College of Veterinary, Konkuk University, Korea

Benefits of Vetiwax™

  • Immediate bone hemostasis 87% within 5 sec and 100 %, 10 sec after application

Vetiwax™

Bio-absorption

  • Observation points: 3days, 1,2,3,6,12 weeks
  • No observation on the site after 3 days of application 

No Inhibition of Bone Regeneration

  • BMD (bone mineral dense) and BVR (bone volume ratio) were measure by using of 3D image and micro-CT to evaluate bone healing. 
  • When VetiwaxTM was applied, the BMD value was 0.51 which was the same value with control group after 12 weeks.
  • That means VetiwaxTM does not hinder normal bone regeneration and growth. However, when Bone wax was applied, the BMD value was significantly lower to 0.09.

No Inhibition of Bone Regeneration

  • After 3 weeks of VetiwaxTM application, the boundary between the defect and the regenerative tissue was not observed (the arrow)
  • After 6 weeks, the thickness of bone tissue regenerated was almost
  • similar to that of the surrounding normal tissue
