Product introduction

Tachosil Mini 3.0cm X 2.5cm Patch is a combination of two medicines used to treat bleeding. It is used with manual compression in patients who have undergone cardiovascular and hepatic surgery when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature, or cautery) is ineffective or impractical.

Tachosil Mini 3.0cm X 2.5cm Patch speeds up the process of clot formation and stops bleeding. Use the patch in the exact way as instructed by your doctor. Using it in the wrong way can cause life-threatening side effects. You should keep in mind that Tachosil Mini 3.0cm X 2.5cm Patch cannot be used in place of sutures or other forms of mechanical ligation for the treatment of major arterial or venous bleeding. This medicine should not be used in children under one month of age. Use of this medicine can cause some common side effects such as anemia, nausea, vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, increased white blood cell count, ascites, itching, atrial fibrillation, pleural effusion, gastrointestinal bleeding, wound infection, electrolyte imbalance, urinary tract infection, and postprocedural bile leakage in hepatic surgery. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects bother you or get worse.

Benefits of Tachosil Transdermal Patch

In Treatment of Bleeding

Tachosil Mini 3.0cm X 2.5cm Patch helps in controlling bleeding by speeding up blood clotting. It helps to prevent excessive loss of blood, stops bleeding and enhances the healing process. This helps prevent complications of excessive bleeding such as hemorrhage. It should be used as advised by the doctor.

Side effects of Tachosil Transdermal Patch

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

  • Ascites (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity)

How to use Tachosil Transdermal Patch

How Tachosil Transdermal Patch works

Tachosil Mini 3.0cm X 2.5cm Patch is a combination of two medicines: Fibrinogen and Thrombin. These are proteins which are involved in the natural clotting process. Thrombin works by converting Fibrinogen into smaller units (called fibrin), which then stick together, leading to rapid formation of a blood clot. The clot helps to stop the bleeding and seals the wound.
