    GELFOAM® Sterile Sponge is a medical device intended for application to bleeding surfaces as a hemostatic. It is water insoluble, off-white, non-elastic, porous, pliable product prepared from purified pork skin gelatin USP granules and water for Injection.

    Features and benefits

    • It may be cut without fraying and is able to absorb and hold within its interstices
    • GELFOAM Sterile Sponge has hemostatic properties
    • When not used in excessive amounts, GELFOAM is absorbed completely, with little tissue reaction
    • GELFOAM Sterile Sponge, used dry or saturated with sterile sodium chloride solution, is indicated in surgical procedures as a hemostatic device, when control of capillary, venous, and arteriolar bleeding by pressure, ligature, and other conventional procedures is either ineffective or impractical.

    Handling instructions to open envelope:

    • With the hands folded into fists, grasp each flap between the thumb and index finger.
    • With a slow, rolling motion, carefully peel back the envelope sides until the sterile inner envelope is exposed.
    • Employing sterile technique, remove sterile inner envelope and sterile sponge.

    Warnings and Precautions:

    • Always use sterile technique when handling GELFOAM Sterile Sponge.
    • GELFOAM Sterile Sponge should not be used in closure of skin incisions because it may interfere with the healing of skin edges.
    • GELFOAM Sterile Sponge should not be resterilized by heat, because heating may change absorption time. Ethylene oxide is not recommended for resterilization because it may be trapped in the interstices of the foam. Although, not reported for GELFOAM, the gas is toxic to tissue, and in trace amounts may cause burns or irritation.
    • This product is prepackaged sterile and intended only for single use.
    • Use of GELFOAM Sterile Sponge is not recommended in the presence of infection.

    Geistlich Bio-Oss® 0.25-1mm, 1g=2cc, 1 Vial/Bx

    Geistlich Bio-Oss® is a sterile, biocompatible porous bone mineral substitute, which is physically and chemically comparable to the mineralized matrix of human bone. It is available in spongiosa (cancellous granules) and in blocks.

    Geistlich Bio-Oss® is the leading bone substitute for regenerative dentistry worldwide. The outstanding osteo-conductive properties of Geistlich Bio-Oss® lead to effective and predictable bone regeneration. Geistlich Bio-Oss® particles are incorporated over time within living bone which provides long-term volume preservation. The bio functionality of Geistlich Bio-Oss® is characterized by its topographic structure, hydrophilic properties and the biologic interaction that supports reliable bone formation.

    Leading clinicians rely on Geistlich Bio-Oss® because:

    • Geistlich Bio-Oss® augmented bone leads to high implant survival rates, comparable with implants placed in native bone.
    • Geistlich Bio-Oss® is easy to apply and can be used in a variety of therapeutic areas.
    • Geistlich Bio-Oss® is validated by 25 years of successful use and testing.
    • Geistlich Bio-Oss® is documented in more than 900 publications.


    • Augmentation or reconstructive treatment of the alveolar ridge; Filling of periodontal defects
    • Filling of defects after root resection, apicoectomy, and cystectomy
    • Filling of extraction sockets to enhance preservation of the alveolar ridge
    • Elevation of the maxillary sinus floor
    • Filling of periodontal defects in conjunction with products intended for Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR)
    • Filling of peri-implant defects in conjunction with products intended for GBR

    Geistlich Bio-Oss® has excellent handling properties and provides predictable results in daily clinical use:

    • Before application, Geistlich Bio-Oss® is mixed with autogenous blood or a saline solution. Its hydrophilic properties promote rapid and complete hydration.
    • Geistlich Bio-Oss® is easily modelled and adheres optimally to the walls of the defect.
    • Excessive compression should be avoided in order to allow for new bone ingrowth.
    • Subsequent application of Geistlich Bio-Gide®, a collagen membrane, enables undisturbed healing which leads to new bone regeneration.


    • Possible complications which may occur with any surgery include swelling at the surgical site, flap sloughing, bleeding, local inflammation, bone loss, infection or pain.
    • As Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® contains collagen, in very rare circumstances cases of allergic reactions may occur.

    Geistlich Bio-Oss® is available in eight convenient quantities of small or large granules, which adapt easily to defect sites:

    • Small Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules (0.25 – 1 mm) – available sizes: 0.25 g ~ 0.5 cc ; 0.5 g ~ 1 cc ; 1 g ~ 2 cc ; 2 g ~ 4 cc
    • Large Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules (1 – 2 mm) – available sizes: 0.5 g ~ 1.5 cc; 1 g ~ 3 cc; 2 g ~ 6 cc
