Optimizing wound healing after sinus surgery is critical to achieving long-term, positive outcomes. It requires a solution that minimizes adhesions, preserves structural integrity, and addresses patient comfort. Medtronic is meeting these needs with Chitogel — a dissolvable biomaterial made with a unique combination of natural ingredients and clinically proven to enhance wound healing.4
Chitogel supports critical wound healing after sinus surgery by combining chitosan, dextran, and glycerol — all derived from natural resources.
Chitogel's development is backed by 10 years of research and clinical evidence, 18 published studies and papers, and successful patient outcomes of a diverse range of sinus surgeries.
Chitogel’s unique characteristics make it an ideal nasal dressing for sinus surgery needs.
Use it to:
Unlike traditional post-surgical nasal packing products, which can be associated with an unpleasant patient experience, Chitogel is a soft, pliable, viscous gel that is applied with a malleable applicator. It helps minimize bleeding and comfortably coats the affected area.
At 12 months post-surgery, compared to no packing materials.
