Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the applicability and safety of gelatin-based hemostatic matrix in children undergoing tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy.
Study design: This study was prospective, single-arm case series study conducted in a three tertiary care centers in Kuwait, from August to December 2011.
Methods: Seventy five children were enrolled (48 male and 27 female) with average age of 3.80 ± 2.14 years. Sixty six underwent tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, seven tonsillectomy alone and two adenoidectomy alone; by same surgeon and same procedures. Surgiflo was applied for 214 surfaces with an average of 2.85 surfaces/patient via an applicator tip connected to the 12 ml syringe pre- filled with Surgiflo mixed with 5 ml normal saline.
Results: Hemostasis was achieved in all 75 patients within 5 minutes of product application without stitches, ties or cautery. The mean blood loss was 11.63 ± 4.40 ml, with a 95% CI (10.61-12.64). The mean duration of operation was 20.57 ± 4.22 minutes, with a 95% CI of (19.60-21.55). The mean time to return to normal diet after operation was 2.11 ± 0.80 days, with a 95% CI of (1.92-2.29). The incidence of adverse events and postoperative complications including hemorrhage in the follow up period was 0%.
Conclusion: Gelatin-based hemostatic matrix (Surgiflo) alone was successful in achieving hemostasis and safe in all patients who underwent tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy. Further RCTs are needed to compare the application of Surgiflo in tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy to other conventional methods.
