• The use of topical microfibrillar collagen hemostatic agents is increasing in many areas of clinical surgery. We have developed a method of preparing the hemostatic agent by which a pledget is formed in a syringe. This gives it a firm consistency and allows easier handling and application and can be done at the operating room table.
