HemoPore fragmentable nasal dressing Indications for Use: HemoPore is intended for use in patients undergoing nasal/sinus surgery as a temporary wound dressing. HemoPore functions as a topical hemostatic aid to control mild bleeding by tamponade effect, blood absorption, platelet activation and aggregation. It acts as an adjunct to aid in the natural healing process as a space occupying stent to separate and support tissues. It prevents adhesions and minimizes edema.

The dressing is a biodegradable, polyurethane foam that fragments within several days. The nasal dressing drains from the nasal cavity via natural mucus flow and/or irrigation. HemoPore is indicated for use as a nasal packing to treat epistaxis.

HemoPore fragmentable nasal dressing contraindications: HemoPore should not be used on patients who have known allergies to shellfish.
