Ear Tampons

Ear Tampons

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.

Tampons, PVA, sterile

  • Expanding ear tampon for post-tympanoplastic tamponing of the external acoustic canal
  • With or without central lumen
  • Single, sterile packaging

Not suitable for application in the middle ear or implantation!
Must be kept constantly moist for the entire duration of use!

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.

Absorbable Gelatin Sponge, sterile

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.
  • 100% purified porcine gelatin
  • Comparatively high density resulting in longer tamponing
  • Insoluble in water and fully absorbable
  • Total absorption time varies according to application (between 4 and 6 weeks)
  • Practical size
  • Single sterile blister packaging, i.e. can be used sparingly
