Haemorrhage Occluder Pin (HOP)

A simple solution to a very severe problem:  The Haemorrhage Occluder Pin (HOP) is indicated for the control of localised severe haemorrhage of the presacral area during pelvic surgery.

'Presacral bleeding during pelvic surgery can be a very severe problem. When it cannot be controlled by conventional methods, it can result in massive haemorrhage and even death.’1

Serrated titanium

  • A biocompatible material commonly used for internal implants. The serrated shaft of the pin offers a secure placement into the sacrum
 

Choice of sizes

  • Available in 10mm & 14mm to tackle bleeds of varying size and location
 

Malleable applicator for efficient placement

  • The HOP comes preloaded in an easy to use applicator. The long shaft of the applicator is malleable and provides optimal visibility for placement
