Title: Use of hyaluronic acid derivatives in the preparation of biomaterials with a physical haemostatic and plugging activity

Abstract: The present invention describes the use of polysaccharide derivatives for the preparation of biocompatible and biodegradable biomaterials with absorbent properties for body fluids and physical hemostatic activity, to be used in both venous and arterial vascular anastomoses to create a physical hemostatic barrier and to prevent scar tissue formation and formation of post-surgical adherence of the vessels to the surrounding tissues.
