Time-table for assessment of hemostasis. Time points were recorded from start of kidney resection to the observation period for both the studies. Time to hemostasis (TTH) and total time for hemostasis (TTTH) were calculated from these time points. *If complete hemostasis was not achieved at 3 min, up to 2 additional applications were permitted within the 10-min evaluation period, starting immediately after the 1st application, with the total fibrin pad used not exceeding a 10 x 10 cm2 unit. If hemostasis was not achieved during the 10-min evaluation period with 3 applications of fibrin pad, the patient was recorded as treatment failure and further hemostatic measures based on physician preference were employed.
