Heparin sodium is a direct-acting anticoagulant that belongs to the group of medium-molecular heparins. It prevents thrombosis, inhibits the activity of hyaluronidase, activates the fibrinolytic properties of blood.
When applied externally, it has a local antithrombotic, decongestant and anti-inflammatory effect, improves blood microcirculation and activates tissue metabolism, as a result of which hematological resorption processes are accelerated, blood clots are prevented, and tissue swelling is reduced.
For external use, a small amount of heparin enters the systemic circulation, without exerting a systemic effect, without causing any changes in blood coagulation parameters. It does not cross the placental barrier.
Skin allergic reactions, hyperemia of the skin.
It should not be used for bleeding, the presence of purulent processes, applied to open wounds and mucous membranes (to avoid systemic resorption). With great care used in hemorrhagic processes.
superficial vein diseases: varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency and related complications (thrombophlebitis, periphlebitis); blunt injuries and bruises of soft tissues; subcutaneous hematomas, including hematomas after vein surgery, phlebectomy; localized infiltrates and swelling of soft tissues.
Known increased sensitivity to the components of the gel, ulcerative necrotic changes in the skin at the sites of the alleged application of the gel, traumatic violation of the integrity of the skin, decreased blood coagulation, thrombocytopenia.
It is not recommended to mix with other drugs for external use, they are not prescribed topically simultaneously with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tetracyclines, antihistamines.
For external use. A small amount of gel (3-10 cm) is applied 1-3 times a day with a thin layer on the skin and gently rubbed.
In case of localized consequences of injuries and bruises (hematoma, infiltrate, soft tissue edema), apply until symptoms disappear.
For the initial symptoms of venous insufficiency (“severity”, leg pain, venous edema), apply within 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
In case of chronic venous insufficiency (varicose veins, superficial periphlebitis, superficial thrombophlebitis), apply within 4-6 weeks, depending on the severity of the symptoms of the disease. The need for further treatment is determined by the doctor.
An overdose is unlikely due to the low absorption of the gel components.
