Medical Definition of Oxidised cellulose

1. Cellulosic acid in the form of an absorbable gauze which is used as a haemostatic in operations where ligation is not feasible (capillary or venous bleeding from small vessels) because cellulosic acid has a pronounced affinity for haemoglobin and produces an artificial clot. It is a sterile absorbable substance prepared by the oxidation of cotton containing not less than 16% and not more than 22% of carboxyl. See: oxycellulose. (22 Sep 2002)
