A mussel-inspired supramolecular hydrogel with robust tissue anchor for rapid hemostasis of arterial and visceral bleedings.

ABSTRACT: In recent years, the developed hemostatic technologies are still difficult to be applied to the hemostasis of massive arterial and visceral hemorrhage, owing to their weak hemostatic function, inferior wet tissue adhesion, and low mechanical properties. Herein, a mussel-inspired supramolecular interaction-cross-linked hydrogel with robust mechanical property (308.47 ± 29.20 kPa) and excellent hemostatic efficiency (96.5% ± 2.1%) was constructed as a hemostatic sealant. Typically, we combined chitosan (CS) with silk fibroin (SF) by cross-linking them through tannic acid (TA) to maintain the structural stability of the hydrogel, especially for wet tissue adhesion ability (shear adhesive strength = 29.66 ± 0.36 kPa). Compared with other materials reported previously, the obtained CS/TA/SF hydrogel yielded a lower amount of blood loss and shorter time to hemostasis in various arterial and visceral bleeding models, which could be ascribed to the synergistic effect of wound closure under wet state as well as intrinsic hemostatic activity of CS. As a superior hemostatic sealant, the unique hydrogel proposed in this work can be exploited to offer significant advantages in the acute wound and massive hemorrhage with the restrictive access of therapeutic moieties.
