Which hemostatic agent is best for CVADs

Our VAT uses Surgifoam to help with hemostasis on CVAD's that have bloody drainage.  Recently our IR department has been using "Combat Gauze" which is sterile and does a great job with hemostatsis.  Is there any preference as to which one to use on CVAD's if both products are sterile and have the same function?

I would prefer to use one

I would prefer to use one that is labeled for CVAD insertion sites such as StatSeal.
