Olympus Unveils New Dissolvable Post Sinus Surgery Products

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus, a precision technology leader in designing and delivering innovative solutions in Medical and Surgical Products, among other core businesses, today announced the addition of a broad line of advanced, dissolvable sinus spacing and hemostat products to its already extensive ENT product portfolio. These products include spacers, foams and powders available in either plant-based or chitosan polysaccharide polymers.

Through a distribution partnership with Hemostasis, LLC, the plant-based and chitosan compositions have been formulated to improve post sinus surgery recovery, comfort and healing. All products are biocompatible, dissolve naturally, require no mixing or special storage considerations and are easily conformed to fit nasal anatomy. Additionally, the sinus products minimize edema, bleeding and prevent post operative adhesions by maintaining space between the upper chambers of the nasal cavities.  

"The new offerings extend Olympus' current world-class ENT solutions to surgeons performing sinus and anterior skull base procedures and their patients," commented Perry Mykleby, Vice President of Marketing for Olympus' ENT sales. "We are pleased to collaborate with Hemostasis, a high-quality medical device manufacturer partner, to enhance patient care."

"Hemostasis is committed to providing the most comprehensive, technologically advanced ENT sinus spacing and hemostat technologies that are safe and effective for their intended use," said Hemostasis' President, Keith Roberts. "Working directly with leading physicians, we have developed practical technologies designed to optimize physician usability and efficacy, which ultimately have improved procedure outcomes and enhances overall patient care."
