Mode of action

Thrombocid® contains the active ingredient sodium pentosan polysulfate (NaPPS).

It is used for the concomitant treatment of acute inflammation or thrombosis of superficial veins (thrombophlebitis).

Locally, the active substance NaPPS promotes circulation in the skin’s smallest blood vessels thanks to its blood thinning and fibrin dissolving effects. The composition of fibrin, an essential component of blood clots (thrombi), is altered in such a way as to dissolve the clot and restore proper blood flow.

NaPPS also has an anti-inflammatory effect and reduces the swelling arising in the inflamed area. The essential oils contained in the gel have additional spasmolytic and locally soothing properties.
