A kit for effecting hemostatis of an organ comprises a mesh and a sack. The mesh is formed of semirigid, bioabsorbable material adapted to be generally conformingly disposed on at least the bleeding surface of an organ. The sack is made of flexible, elastic, air-impermeable material adapted to be elastically stretched over the mesh and over a substantial portion of the organ and then released to compress the organ portion and thereby decrease the flow of blood thereto. The sack further permits operative attachment of the undersurface thereof to a vacuum source so that portions of the organ may be pulled outwardly by the vacuum into the interstices of the underlying mesh to promote hemostasis.
