Because of the ﬁrm higher density then standard cubes, the cubes stay longer in place, and are as such perfectly suited to be inserted to support and separate tissue to prevent adhesions and to control bleeding.
Clinical study report demonstrated: “Excellent processing abilities and no fuzzing was observed, which is clinically of major importance.” According to Priv. Doz Dr. “The pre operative preparations for the nurses are not time consuming and the application procedure was technically simple.
It has been demonstrated: “The postoperative period of 7 to 21 days can be passed without complications. There was no sign for a foreign body reaction, inﬂammation or formation of granulation tissue to the internal or external application of ENT gelatin sponges. There was no new bone formation either. The removal of ENT gelatin sponges cubes are easy without problems. A suction could be used occasionally with the use of a forceps. No remnants had to be removed in a second attempt.”
Soak the high density ENT cube in antibiotic, or sterile saline solution, or use dry.
