Summary:
Bleeding unavoidably accompanies injections when a conventional needle penetrates tissue. Although controlled bleeding does not cause harm to healthy individuals, uncontrolled bleeding may bring serious complications for those who suffer from hemophilia, coagulopathy, diabetes, or who have been exposed to infectious diseases. This study shows the hemostatic hypodermic needle coated with partially cross-linked mussel-inspired polymers that undergo a solid-to-gel phase transition in situ to seal punctured tissues.
