OBJECTIVES Purified plant polysaccharide (HemoStase) is a plant-derived hemostatic agent that has not previously been used in sinus surgery. This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of this novel agent in the control of nasal bleeding during endoscopic sinus surgery. The volume of bleeding during endoscopic sinus surgery was hypothesized to not be statistically significantly different between a control group (gelatin-thrombin matrix; FloSeal) and an experimental group (purified… CONTINUE READING
