US Patent 8,828,050 B2
CAUTION: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
Non-absorbable, expandable, hemostatic sponge for temporary internal use.
XStat® is a first-in-kind hemostatic device for the treatment of gunshot and shrapnel wounds. XStat works by injecting a group of small, rapidly-expanding sponges into a wound cavity using a syringe-like applicator. Each sponge contains an x-ray detectable marker. In the wound, the XSTAT sponges expand and swell to fill the wound cavity within 20 seconds of contact with blood. This creates a temporary barrier to blood flow and provides hemostatic pressure.
“When a product is developed for use in the battlefield, it is generally intended to work in a worstcase scenario where advanced care might not be immediately available,” said William Maisel, M.D., M.P.H., acting director of the Office of Device Evaluation in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “It is exciting to see this technology transition to help civilian first responders control some severe, lifethreatening bleeding while on the trauma scene.”
Indications for Use:
XSTAT 30 is a hemostatic device for the control of severe, life-threatening bleeding from junctional wounds in the groin or axilla not amenable to tourniquet application in adults and adolescents.
XSTAT 30 is a temporary device for use up to four (4) hours until surgical care is acquired. It should only be used for patients at high risk for immediate life-threatening bleeding from, hemodynamically significant (Advanced Trauma Life Support class 3 or 4 hemorrhagic shock), non- compressible junctional wounds, and when definitive care at an emergency care facility cannot be achieved within minutes
XSTAT 30 is NOT indicated for use in: the thorax; the pleural cavity; the mediastinum; the abdomen; the retroperitoneal space; the sacral space above the inguinal ligament; or tissues above the clavicle.
