Recothrom Spray

The ONLY Recombinant Topical Thrombin1

Recombinant human thrombin was developed as an alternative with reduced immunogenicity and infectious risk.3

RECOTHROM is for topical use only – do not inject. You can learn how to reconstitute both configurations of RECOTHROM by downloading the preparation guide, below.

Recothrom vs Bovine Thrombin Chart

Clinically Proven1

95% of patients treated with RECOTHROM achieved hemostasis within 10 minutes, comparable to bovine thrombin in a non-inferiority study.1,2

In clinical trials, RECOTHROM has been used in patients with or without preexisting bovine or recombinant human thrombin antibodies.1

Additional Product Benefits

Low Antiproduct Antibody Formation

A phase 3 study showed that 1.5% of patients receiving RECOTHROM developed antiproduct antibodies, compared with 21.5% of patients receiving bovine thrombin.1,2*


*This study was not designed or powered to detect an association between antibody formation and adverse clinical outcomes. The overall incidence of AE’s was similar between treatment groups.

Versatile Surgical Applications

Proven efficacy across broad surgical specialties. RECOTHROM may be applied with absorbable gelatin sponge (USP), spray pump, or syringe-tip sprayer.1

A Variety of Configurations

RECOTHROM is available in two sizes: 5,000 units and 20,000 units. An additional spray configuration is available in 20,000 units.1


RECOTHROM Thrombin topical (Recombinant) Indication

RECOTHROM Thrombin topical (Recombinant) is a topical thrombin indicated to aid hemostasis whenever oozing blood and minor bleeding from capillaries and small venules is accessible and control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature, or cautery) is ineffective or impractical in adults and pediatric populations greater than or equal to one month of age.

RECOTHROM may be used in conjunction with an absorbable gelatin sponge, USP.

RECOTHROM Thrombin topical (Recombinant) Important Risk Information

  • Do not inject directly into the circulatory system.
  • Do not use for the treatment of massive or brisk arterial bleeding.
  • Do not administer to patients with a history of hypersensitivity to RECOTHROM thrombin or any components of RECOTHROM or hamster proteins.
  • RECOTHROM thrombin causes thrombosis if it enters the circulatory system. Apply topically. DO NOT INJECT.
  • Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, may occur. The most common adverse reaction (incidence 6%) was thromboembolic events. (Antibody formation to RECOTHROM occurred in <1% of patients. None of the antibodies detected neutralized native human thrombin.
