Surgical Sealant


​Ideal for wet conditions

 AQUABRID® is a fully synthetic surgical sealant for aortic surgical procedures. In contact with water AQUABRID® forms an elastic layer within 3 to 5 minutes – making it optimal for use on wet conditions. AQUABRID® stretches and shrinks with contraction of the vessel, while maintaining a strong seal in the aorta.1, 2 AQUABRID® has been commercially available in Japan since 2014 under the name of HYDROFIT®.1, 2


  • ​How does AQUABRID® work? 

    ​AQUABRID® can be applied to natural and/or artificial tissue (e.g. aortic graft). The surgical site does not need to be dry, AQUABRID® requires blood/ moisture for reaction.

  • A thin layer of AQUABRID® (liquid) is applied to seal the suture holes. 

  • AQUABRID® absorbs the moisture/blood and doubles its regional volume.

  • ​AQUABRID® forms an elastic film after polymerization with CO2 release.
