Summary

This is a prospective, randomized, active-controlled, single-blind, parallel group clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of FS Grifols as an adjunct to hemostasis during surgery in pediatric subjects.

Pediatric subjects (<18 years of age) requiring an elective (non-emergent), open (non-laparoscopic), pelvic, abdominal, or thoracic (non-cardiac) surgical procedure, wherein a target bleeding site (TBS) is identified, and a topical hemostatic agent is indicated, will be eligible to participate in the clinical trial.

The study treatments will be applied on the cut parenchymous surface of a solid organ (ie, liver) and in soft tissue (ie, fat, muscle, or connective tissue).

Description

This is a prospective, randomized, active-controlled, single-blind, parallel group clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of FS Grifols as an adjunct to hemostasis during surgery. Approximately 172 pediatric subjects will be enrolled and will be randomly allocated in a 1:1 ratio into 1 of 2 treatment groups: FS Grifols or EVICEL. Enrollment will be monitored by surgery type to ensure at least 50% of the surgical procedures are hepatic.

A specific bleeding site will be defined as the TBS when it is determined by the investigator (the surgeon) that control of bleeding by conventional surgical techniques (including suture, ligature, and cautery) is ineffective or impractical and requires an adjunct treatment to achieve hemostasis.

When the TBS is identified, the investigator will record the precise anatomical location of the TBS, rate the intensity of the bleeding at the TBS (Grade 1-4 according to a 5-point validated bleeding severity scale), and record the size of the approximate bleeding surface, (small, medium, and large). For soft tissue surgery only, the investigator will also record the type of soft tissue (ie, fat, muscle, or connective tissue). In this clinical trial, only subjects with a TBS with bleeding of Grade 1 (mild) or Grade 2 (moderate) intensity will be enrolled.

This study includes a Screening Visit to determine subject eligibility, a Baseline Visit, the Surgical Procedure (Day 1), and Post-operative assessments at Days 1, 4, and 30. The total duration of a subject's participation in this study is expected to be no longer than 2 months from the Screening Visit to the Post-operative Day 30 Visit.
