  • Causa
    The european medicines agency (ema) has clarified their recommendation for 20 psi (as opposed to 20-25 psi) pressure to be used when spraying evicel with the 45cm tip during laparoscopic surgery. as a result, the labelling of omrix pressure regulators in australia need to be updated and the sticker label on each pressure regulator will be replaced to reflect this change.Also, in an effort to enhance consistency between the labelling of the omrix pressure regulator and the omrix evicel solutions for sealant, the ifu for the pressure regulator has been updated to remove the following statement;"spray application of evicel should not be used in endoscopic procedures where the minimum recommended distance of 4 cm cannot be maintained. for laparoscopic procedures using accessory tips, see the recommendations in table 2".
