Bone Wax for Wound Closure, Universal Sutures Products

Bone Wax (HAEMOWAX)

Bone Wax is a mixture of beeswax, paraffin, and isopropyl palmitate, a wax-softening agent. It is opaque and has a waxy odor. It’s indicated for use in the control of bleeding from bone surfaces during surgical procedures.

It achieves local hemostasis of bone by acting as a mechanical (tamponade) barrier. It does not act biochemically and is non-absorb-able. It is available sterile in individual foil envelopes, each containing 2.5 g and packed in an individually sealed overwrap. It is sterilized by Gamma radiation.

Packets should be opened just prior to use to minimize the possibility of contamination and excessive drying and should be used immediately. The Surgical Wax should not be re-sterilized or subjected to excessive heat.

The HAEMOWAX (Sterile Bone Wax) is used as a mechanic hemostat to control bleeding in surgical procedures involving bone tissue. Mainly in cardiac surgery where hemostasis is necessary to make in general, the sternum bone.

Bone wax is indicated for the mechanical control of bone hemorrhages in:

  • Thoracic surgery (sternum, ribs)
  • Neurosurgery
  • Traumatology and Orthopedics
  • Maxillofacial surgery (facial bones)

  • Due to its composition, it is easy to mold with the heat of the hand.
  • Due to its composition, it can be applied in the minimum amount possible
  • A small amount of product is enough to achieve hemostasis.
  • Minimize the delay of bone regeneration.
  • Minimize the possibility of foreign body formation.
  • Minimizes the inflammatory reaction
  • Bone wax remains inside the body.

Bone wax has no intrinsic pharmacological properties. The hemostatic effect is mechanically produced by occlusion of the intraosseous blood vessels.

  • Do not re-sterilize.
  • Medical and hospital use only.
  • Do not apply bone wax directly to the central nervous system.
  • Do not use bone wax in patients with a known allergy to beeswax.
