Blom-Singer® Nasal Septal Perforation Prosthesis
FOR THE NON-SURGICAL CLOSURE OF NASAL SEPTAL PERFORATIONS
A nasal septal perforation can vary in size and location, and it may be asymptomatic or cause a variety of symptoms. For those with a nasal septal perforation, and those who live with people with a nasal septal perforation,the impact can be aggravating and uncomfortable.
COMMON CAUSES OF NASAL SEPTAL PERFORATION:
- Complications from nasal surgery
- Chronic epistaxis
- Aggressive digital nasal cleaning (nose picking)
- Nasal piercings
- Chemical inhalants
- Cocaine use
- Small anterior lesions may cause a whistling sound
- Larger perforations may cause crusting, bloody discharge, difficulty breathing, nasal pressure, and discomfort
OPTIONS TO FIT
Available in multiple round and oval shapes, sizes and thicknesses. The Blom-Singer Nasal Septal Perforation Prosthesis offers multiple sizes and shapes to close nasal septal perforations. A better fit means less pistoning, less side to side movement and a reduction in bleeding and crusting.
Precisely molded medical grade silicone covers neodymium magnets that couple to fit with a strong, reliable attachment force.
EASE OF INSERTION
Studies have documented that patients using a two (2) piece magnetically coupled nasal septal button experienced no particular discomfort on insertion, removal or replacement while all cases reported a precise, tight fit. A magnetic-based technique ensures a more practical debris removal procedure for the attending ENT specialist.¹
