Dissolvable Post-op Nasal Dressing

SINU-KNIT Dissolvable Post-op Nasal Dressing


SINU-KNIT is a dissolvable post-op nasal dressing (intranasal splint) intended to minimize bleeding and oedema and to prevent adhesions within the nasal cavity.

Made of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) that has been formed into a convenient mesh-like fabric, SINU-KNIT converts to a dense gel after hydration. This dense gel provides a moist hydrocolloid physical barrier that minimises occurrence of post-op bleeding and adhesions.

Convenient mesh-like fabric form factor

  • Dry fabric can be cut and manipulated prior to insertion to provide a custom fit based on user preference
  • Easy to place and hydrate, converted gel stays in place until it naturally dissolves

Highly Absorbent polysaccharide material

  • Forms a viscous hydrocolloid gel when hydrated
  • Absorbs multiple times its weight in water

Converts to a dense CMC gel

  • Minimizes intra- and postoperative bleeding and oedema
  • Provides a moist physical barrier that supports and separates mucosal tissue to minimise post-op adhesions
  • Dissolves through normal outflow for easy post-op debridement. No need to remove post-op packing
