Indication

The nasal splint may be used following several surgical procedures, including S.M.R, polypectomy and rhinoplasty, to provide safe and efficient haemostasis or splinting. The nasal splint may be used for most applications previously treated with B.I.P.P ribbon gauze or similar packs. 

Advantages

  • It was generaly found that the use of intranasal silicone nasal splints to be of marked clinical advantage in the prevention of post-operative nasal adhesions. Please see clinical references*
  • The design of the nasal splint ensures a patent airway for the patient, in situations requiring bilateral splinting or packing.
  • Radio-opaque for safety. 
  • All our product range is totally latex and phthalate free.

Presentation

Usage 

The splint is held lengthways between the finger and the thumb, of both hands, and rolled together to produce a ‘tube’. The larger end of this splint is then introduced into the nose and, upon release, will open due to the elastic qualities of silicone. The splints may be fixed in situ by suturing, or passing a ribbon through the hole and attaching this to the patient’s clothing. For a firmer nasal pack, where patency of airway is less important, the splint may be packed with ribbon gauze after insertion.
