Ankaferd BloodStopper (ABS) is a product claimed to have antihemorrhagic properties. It is used in hospitals and ambulances in Turkey to stop bleeding. In Goker et al, introduced Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS) as a new hemostatic drug. Recently, ABS has been shown to produce local. Elucidation of the Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS; Ankaferd Medical Products Inc, Istanbul, Turkey) as a topical hemostatic agent in the setting of epistaxis is.

The records of all patients who underwent upper and lower endoscopy procedures at the Turkiye Yuksek Ihtisas Teaching and Research Hospital Ankara, Turkey between April and June were reviewed. The patient had no signs or symptoms associated with Stoppfr hemorrhage during the one-month period after the polypectomy session. Photomicrographs demonstrating fibrosis in the control group.

Patients in whom ABS was xtopper as a primary or adjuvant hemostatic agent were included in the study. Patient records were also reviewed for any evidence of rebleeding after the procedure.

During the ankaferc procedure, bright red blood was observed in the esophagus and stomach. Grading of EF and arachnoidal involvement was performed according to the definition of He et al. Although spray catheters are available in our hospital and would have been ideal, we used the PWL disposable wash pipe for the topical application of ABS solution to completely cover the bleeding surface.

The sponges weighed heavier in Group 2. Spine Phila Pa Jun;18 8: ABS may be prophylactically administered to the gastric mucosa following biopsy in patients having gastric remnants, comorbid conditions associated with hemostatic deficiency ankagerd, chronic renal and liver failure and antihemostatic drug use eg, ASA, warfarin and clopidogrel. ABS is applied at increasing doses until hemostasis is achieved, up to a maximum dose of 84 mL.

Studies in its evolution, characteristics, effects and prophylaxis in dogs. Whether the distributions of continuous variables were normally or not was determined by using Kolmogorov-Smirnov test.


Direct contact between the underlying spinal cord SC and the epidural fibrosis tissue F is evident. Regarding to hypothesis, the inadequate control of epidural bleeding during surgical interventions is strongly associated with epidural fibrosis 45 The specimens were examined under a light microscope.

Although both the introduction of microsurgical techniques and improvements in bipolar coagulation technology ease to hemostasis, EF after laminectomy can still occur 45 An efficient stereological sampling approach for quantitative assessment of nerve regeneration. To determine the number of fibroblasts taken from the three separate sections on each laminectomized spine, three distinct regions on the surface area were determined as Services on Demand Journal.

No major immediate or delayed complications were observed in either group. Six different areas were counted on each animal, and stereological analyses of fibroblasts were conducted according to the studies described previously Conclusions The topical application of microporous polysaccharide hemospheres and ankaferd blood stopper significantly reduces EF formation, dural adhesion and fibroblast cell density in an experimental rat laminectomy model.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. We can conclude that MPH can be applied safely for hemostasis in the case of ooze bleeding into the laminectomy site with the risk of postoperative EF. Of particular interest is the case history of patient 1 who experienced hematemesis while in the coronary intensive care unit. Furthermore, it is shown that MPH reduces the incidence of surgical site infection Following sterile isolation, long posterior midline surgical incisions were performed between the L4 and L6 levels.

This might have contributed to the healing effect of ABS in our final patient who also had sepsis. The effects of ankaferd blood stopper and microporous polysaccharide hemospheres on epidural fibrosis in rat laminectomy model 1. If p value less than 0. As a medicinal product, ABS has been approved for the management of external hemorrhage and dental surgery bleeding in Turkey, based on safety and efficacy reports supporting its sterility and ankfaerd.

Anatomical effects on the spinal nerve root without and with fusion. However, ABS may play a significant role in controlling oozing such as from angiodysplasia, tumoral and postpolypectomy bleeding, and radiation colitis.

On repeat endoscopy one day later, the clips remained in place, with no signs of active bleeding. The basic mechanism of action for ABS is the formation of an encapsulated protein network that provides focal points for erythrocyte aggregation and forming a fibrin plug bood The lumbar fascia was opened approximately bloos Baseline hemoglobin values measured on admission showed no significant differences between the groups.

The in vivo hemostatic effect of ABS was evaluated in rats pretreated with acetylsalicylic acid ASA or enoxaparin, as well as in a swine model 23. The role of closed-suction drainage in preventing epidural fibrosis and ankaderd correlation with a new grading system of epidural fibrosis on the basis of MRI.
