Bis(hydroxyl)-terminated PLA-PEG-PLA triblocks | Nasal packing

After sinus surgery, it is important to use nasal packing to help control bleeding and provide support to separate tissue and structure at the surgical site. The device comprises bis(hydroxyl)-terminated PLA-PEG-PLA. This device functions to fill nasal/sinus cavities following surgery or trauma and to keep mucosal surfaces separate during the healing process.
