Z-Medica, LLC, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic devices, announces today that QuikClot Control+® is now commercially available. The announcement is being made in advance of the 2018 EAST Annual Scientific Assembly of the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST), January 9-13 at the Disney Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, where Z-Medica will be exhibiting.
Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June of 2017 under the de novo classification process, QuikClot Control+ is the first and only hemostatic dressing cleared for temporary control of internal organ space bleeding for patients displaying class III or class IV bleeding.
“Full commercial availability of QuikClot Control+ adds an additional life-saving tool to the arsenal of Z-Medica products that surgeons can use to help save lives and fill the unmet need of hospitals across the country,” says Z-Medica President and CEO Stephen J. Fanning. “Uncontrolled bleeding continues to be a major cause of preventable deaths. Devices like QuikClot Control+ can improve hemorrhage control, potentially savings lives and reducing healthcare costs.”
