MEROGEL® Nasal Dressing and Sinus Stent, and Otologic Packing

Natural and Safe Wound Healing

MEROGEL is a bioresorbable nasal dressing and sinus stent, and otologic packing designed to help control bleeding and create a physical separation of mucosal surfaces to aid in the post-operative healing process.

MEROGEL is composed of HYAFF®, an ester of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring component of the extracellular matrix. In contact with body fluids, it changes into a viscous and transparent gel in approximately 48 hours, conforms to mucosal surfaces, and eventually dissolves after approximately 2 weeks in the sinus/nasal cavity or 6 weeks in the middle ear. It may also be manually irrigated from the cavity.

The MEROGEL Advantage

  • Helps control bleeding
  • Separates tissues
  • Does not swell or shift
  • Safe, natural, absorbable

Indications

MEROGEL is CE-marked and FDA-cleared for use in the nasal, sinus, middle ear and external ear canals as a spacing dressing or stent to separate mucosal surfaces, to help control bleeding and to act as an adjunct to assist in the natural healing process following various surgical procedures. MEROGEL is specifically indicated for use following nasal and sinus surgery. Otologic packing is indicated for use in the middle ear and external ear canal following canalplasty, myringoplasty, tympanoplasty, and stapes and mastoid surgery.
