Gelatamp is a gelatine sponge for the prophylaxis of wound infections and secondary bleeding after extractions. Gelatamp contains colloidal silver and is therefore distinctly different from pure gelatine sponges. The silver leads to a broad antibacterial effect over the entire absorption time and gives gelatamp its specific brown colour. 
  • Rapid initial hemostasis
  • Stabilization of the coagulum
  • Broad bactericidal depot effect
  • Complete resorption
  • 20pc x 14x7x7mm gelatine sponges

Gelatamp gelatine sponges are used to treat wound cavities and sockets following extraction.

Clinical Advantages
Rapid initial haemostasis following extractions is an important step in initiating wound healing. The haemostatic process forms a coagulum which is the decisive link to the resulting granulation tissue which finally replaces the coagulum. Disturbances in wound healing often occur if the coagulum is not formed, a formed coagulum is destroyed or if it is lost due to inappropriate post-operative patient behaviour. The use of Gelatamp counteracts these influencing factors in various ways and has been proven to reduce disturbances in wound healing.

Mode of Action
Gelatamp supports rapid haemostasis. The sponge absorbs a multiple of its own weight in blood, fills the wound cavity and stabilises the blood coagulum. The sponge structure enhances the aggregation of thrombocytes and thus haemostasis. Gelatamp fits tightly to its surroundings and prevents the formation of gaps and secondary cavities which could occur through contraction of the blood coagulum without Gelatamp. The ingress of burdened saliva is reduced, and thus the risk of wound infections. In addition, the silver ions of the colloidal silver in the sponge are activated. Ag+ ions are highly reactive in a moist environment and counteract the survival or multiplication of bacteria in numerous ways. As silver is bound in the gelatine, it is not washed out, but released successively when the sponge is resorbed. The difference is the depot effect of Gelatamp – the antibacterial effect of the gelatine sponge acts over the entire resorption period and thus effectively prevents wound infections. The silver in Gelatamp acts locally and not systemically, resulting in good tolerability.

Gelatamp is applied immediately after the wound cavity has filled with blood. To maintain its full absorbing capacity, the sponge is to be applied dry into the wound and should not be compressed. The sponge will fill completely with blood and immediately promotes the haemostatic process. Treatment of the alveolus is provided by placing the sponge, there is no need for further irrigation and, if required, it can be sutured.
