Success Stories

Packed bleeding abscess

Thought you might like to know about a gorilla at the Bronx Zoo. I learned today that the Bronx Zoo had an older gorilla with tooth problems and an abscess on what appeared to be his head. While the animal was under sedation for dental surgery, the vet team removed teeth, but while they treated an abscess in the head of the gorilla–they also learned the problem was connected to the animal’s tooth problem. They expressed the abscess and packed the resulting wound with CELOX and a gauze tamponade. When sedation wore off, the gorilla quickly removed the gauze tampon, but the CELOX was highly successful as a hemostatic and as a packing agent
