  • User friendly application
  • 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.

  • Safe, no complications
  • 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.”

How to use in easy steps ?

Before

After

Soak the high density ENT cube in antibiotic, or sterile saline solution, or use dry.

  • If used dry, the sponge is cut into the desired size and is slightly compressed. The sponges must be applied to a bleeding area under light pressure for one or two minutes until the bleeding stops.
  • If used wet, withdraw SURGISPON®ENT cubes, and squeeze thoroughly between gloved fingers to expel air bubbles. Replace in saline, and keep there until needed.
  • When bleeding is controlled, cubes can be left in situ.
  • When needed support is achieved, the cubes may be removed from the hearing canal.
