Patient Criteria

Collatamp G is a clinically proven anti-infective surgical implant that delivers a high dose of concentration-dependent gentamicin directly to the site of infection risk, providing effective and efficient antibiotic coverage only where needed, when needed. 

The collagen substrate possesses exceptional haemostatic properties. Collatamp G is fully resorbable, and does not require a subsequent surgery for removal.

For high-risk surgical cases, Collatamp G is intended to be used as an adjunct to proper administration of systemic antibiotic prophylaxis and the "Safer Healthcare Now" surgical site infection bundle.

Consider adjunctive use of Collatamp G for:

Patients:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity (BMI >30)
  • Elderly or very young
  • ASA score 2-4
  • Alcohol/tobacco use
  • Steroid therapy
  • Immunocompromised
  • Existing local infection

Procedures:

  • Dirty/contaminated surgery
  • Surgery of long duration
  • High NNIS score
  • Where SSI would be catastrophic
