Say Goodbye To Nasal Packing
- Traditional methods of epistaxis treatment involve bulky tampons that may not effectively conform and seal wounds, and pullout may cause additional trauma.
- StatBond creates an effective seal over wounds, completely covering and sealing the wound site. Tampons do not achieve full contact with wound surface and cannot completely cover the wound.
- StatBond manages adhesion by coating the wound tissues and creating a barrier that provides a scaffold and environment for healing.
- StatBond eliminates insertion and pullout trauma by dissolving upon healing.
- StatBond provides more comfort and less blocking for nasal airway to your patients.
- Stops bleeding in seconds
- Doesn’t require compression
- No premixing
- No special storage
- One size fits all
- Doesn’t require a specialist
StatBond is a visco-elastic synthetic polymer that mechanically seals bleeding vessels.
StatBond ENT is easier to apply and provides better patient comfort than nasal packing.
The StatBond polymer spreads and seals 100% of the wound, unlike nasal packing.
No removal is required! StatBond dissolves after wound healing.
The Big Deal About The Little’s Area
60% of people in the United States will experience nosebleed at some point 1. Of those, approximately 6% will seek medical attention for epistaxis 2. Nosebleed accounts for 0.5% of all emergency department visits and up to one-third of all otolaryngology-related emergency department encounters 3.
The source of 90% of anterior nosebleeds is within Little’s area on the anterior nasal septum 4. Anterior nosebleed is the most common form of epistaxis and is often treated with a nasal tamponade that compresses the wound area while hemostasis occurs. The duration of placement of non- resorbable anterior nasal packing typically ranges from 48 hours to 72 hours or even longer 5. Rebleeding can result upon removal by causing mucosal abrasions or detaching eschar 6. In addition, removal of nasal packing can lead to mucosal trauma and additional bleeding. Furthermore, according to the American Academy of Otolaryngologists, nasal packing can cause airway obstruction and lead to complications. In its clinical practice guideline for treating epistaxis, the AAO defines resorbable packing as packing that does not require removal. Statbond ENT covers and seals the injury to achieve rapid hemostasis.
