Abstract

Recently, biomaterials for spacers following sinus surgery have been extensively researched. Such materials may reduce the incidence of early postoperative bleeding and formation of synechiae, and possibly promote mucosal healing. The aims of this study are to review recent advances in absorbent packing materials for the nasal cavity and to differentiate their effects on hemostasis, wound healing and prevention of adhesion.
