Nasal packing

Bioresorbable and dissolvable nasal packing

Why use bioresorbable nasal packing after sinus surgery?

After sinus surgery, it is important to use nasal packing to help control bleeding and provide a support to separate tissue and structure at the surgical site. Stryker’s bioresorbable nasal packing service to help prevent adhesions between mucosal surfaces and assists in healing. Plus, because it dissolves gradually and is cleared naturally, it eliminates the need for painful nasal packing removal.

Our bioresorbable nasal packing products come in different sizes, fragmentation times, compression strengths, and hemostatic properties to ensure your patients have a comfortable post-operative experience. Choose from nasal packing in a range of compression options for optimal hemostasis, support, and stability, as well as adhesion prevention. Because our nasal packing products are dissolvable, they clear through natural mucosal flow. Plus, there is no need for mixing, moistening, injection syringes, or other prep, making your surgical process more efficient.
