Abstract

All sinus surgeons have the common objective of achieving excellent hemostasis and postoperative healing that avoids adhesion formation and lateralization of the middle turbinate ; however, there is little agreement on how this is best achieved. The use of various interventions, from removable nasal packing or absorbable nasal packing to no packing at all, is widely debated. In view of the present lack of standardization and the many different packing materials used, this report will briefly review the current literature in regard to nasal dressings following ESS and outline important developments in this area of active research.
