Clinical Utility of Bone Wax - A Post Market Clinical Follow Up Study

Murali Mohan S [2] | Ramaswamy Anikode Subramanian [4] | Mathangi Krishna Kumar [3]


Abstract: Bone wax is a century-old material used in surgical practice to control bleeding of disrupted bone surfaces by acting as a mechanical barrier. The current bone wax products are commonly packed in easy-to-open foil in the form of sterile sticks or plates. They have excellent malleability and smooth consistency, enabling cost-effective and easy handling approach for bleeding control. It has also been reported that the bone wax can at times cause complications including foreign body reaction and infection. This post market clinical follow up study was done to assess the clinical performance, safety and acceptability of the Bone Wax and to determine if any undesirable events occurred. A total of 31 subjects participated in the study among which 19 patients underwent cranial surgeries and 12 spine surgeries. All the subjects benefitted out of the surgeries where bone wax was used with excellent intended results. Additionally, no adverse events related to the use of bone wax were recorded in the study.
