Nasal Packing That’s Easier On Your Patients and More Effective Than Standard Nasal Dressing1

To absorb drainage, control minimal bleeding, and prevent the middle turbinate from lateralizing following functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), Medtronic offers innovative dissolvable nasal packing. It eliminates the need for packing removal, which can be extremely painful for your patients.

Fewer Adhesions and Reduced Healing Time
with Hyaluronic Acid

Our dissolvable nasal packing products use hyaluronic acid, a linear polysaccharide and naturally occurring constituent of the extracellular matrix. It helps keep the surgical site moist, reduce adhesions, and decrease healing time.1 Esterified hyaluronic acid, or HYAFF®, is a patented formula that is used in our MeroGel® and MeroPack® nasal packing products.
