Sinu-Knit® is a dissolvable post-op nasal dressing (intranasal splint) intended to minimize bleeding and edema and to prevent adhesions within the nasal cavity. Made of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) that has been formed into a convenient mesh-like fabric, Sinu-Knit converts to a dense gel after hydration that provides a moist hydrocolloid physical barrier that minimizes occurrence of post-op bleeding and adhesions.

Features of the Sinu-Knit nasal dressing include:

Convenient mesh-like fabric form factor

  • Dry fabric can be cut and manipulated prior to insertion to provide custom fit based on user preference
  • Easy to place and hydrate, converted gel stays in place until it naturally dissolves

Highly absorbent polysaccharide material

  • Forms a viscous hydrocolloid gel when hydrated
  • Capable of absorbing multiple times its weight in water*

Converts to a dense CMC gel

  • Minimizes intra- and postoperative bleeding and edema
  • Provides a moist physical barrier that supports and separates mucosal tissue to minimize post-op adhesions
  • Dissolves away through normal outflow in 5-7 days for easy post-op debridement and no need to remove post-op packing

Units/Box: 12
