Ear tampons are used for post otoplasty tamponing of the outer acoustic canal and outer ear drum. They are made of diverse materials, most commonly used today are; gelatin, PVA (Polyvinyl alcohol) and cotton.
The products made of purified porcine gelatin can also be used in the middle ear, as they can be completely absorbed by the body.
Ear tampons protect the operated area from external, mechanical influences and can be used in the application of antibiotics.
Expanding ear tampon for post-tympanoplastic tamponing of the external acoustic canal
With or without central lumen
Single, sterile packaging
IMPORTANT: In order to prevent the tampon adhering to tissue after tympanoplasty, it is absolutely vital that strips of silicone sheeting (e.g. Art.No. 1710000 or 1710001) are applied to the eardrum and the walls of the external acoustic canal. Must be kept constantly moist for the entire duration of use. Not suitable for implantation!

Absorbable Gelatin Sponge
Ear tampons made of purified porcine gelatin are commonly utilised in otoplasty. They function dry or moist, and have a wide range of applications. They can be used for local haemostasis, keeping fascia or perichondrium in place, or even as a carrier for the local application of antibiotics. The advantages of this material are the porous structure and light weight combined with good compatibility and complete absorption.
