Efficacy of Balloon Tamponade Versus Merocel Nasal Packs in Endoscopic Sinonasal Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Study
TLDR
Balloon tamponade (Rapid Rhino) nasal pack can be a better alternative to the Merocel nasal pack in reducing postoperative pain, bleeding, and mucosal damage.
Clinical benefits of polyurethane nasal packing in endoscopic sinus surgery
TLDR
Polyurethane packing is an effective alternative for nasal packing following functional endoscopic sinus surgery and synechia formation and nasal discharge were also significantly improved in the packed fossa.
Effects of Nasopore Packing on Dacryocystorhinostomy
TLDR
Nasopore significantly reduced postoperative nasal re-bleeding and patient discomfort during the early post-surgical period, but failed to show an effect on the postoperative anatomical and functional success of DCR.
Effect of biodegradable versus nondegradable nasal packings in the outcome of functional endoscopic sinus surgery: clinical and histopathological study
TLDR
Comparing the effect of biodegradable versus nondegradable nasal packings on the outcome of endoscopic sinus surgery on clinical, endoscopic, and histopathologic basis shows biodegradation can offer patients a good quality of life during the early recovery period without beneficial or detrimental effects on postoperative mucosal healing.
A comparative study of gloved versus ungloved merocel® as nasal pack after septoplasty
TLDR
Gloved Merocel® may be preferred over ungloved Mrocel® as nasal packing following septoplasty since both types of packs had similar hemostatic, adhesion prevention properties and similar incidence in postoperative complications and gloved Mertel produces less pain during its insertion, while it is in situ, during its removal with early recovery of nasal mucociliary clearance mechanism of nose.
Safety and Efficacy of Biodegradable Nasopore Nasal Packing In Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
Evaluating the safety and efficacy of biodegradable Nasopore ® (polyurethane glycol) in FESS, particularly in the day-case setting, finds that chronic rhinosinusitis not responding to medical therapy and the extent of the surgery was determined by the severity of disease.
Comparison of calcium alginate and polyurethane foam used as nasal packings after endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy
TLDR
Algi-packR and NasoporeR equivalently suppressed bleeding after endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy and did not differentially affect the surgical success rate or the frequency of postoperative complications.
Safety of (rhino)septoplasty without nasal packing in routine ENT practice
TLDR
Non-use of nasal packing after a (rhino)septoplasty is a safe alternative to classic post-operative methods and should be used as a principal technique in any routine practice due to its safety for patients immediately post-surgery.
Effectiveness of Synthetic Polyurethane Foam as a Nasal Packing Material in Endoscopic Endonasal Dacryocystorhinostomy
TLDR
The authors suggest that using a synthetic polyurethane foam as a nasal packing material is not only a surgical option, but also a crucial and essential procedure in EDCR.
Comparison between Rapid Rhino® Pack and Gloved Nasal Pack as Middle Meatal Spacers after Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
Whether packs are always necessary following endoscopic sinus surgery is concluded, as Rapid Rhino® Pack fulfils their primary purpose of hemostasis and is well tolerated.

TLDR
The use of Merocel packing postoperatively neither impairs nor promotes wound healing in the postoperative period.

TLDR
This specific hemostatic sealant was shown to be a safe and efficacious alternative method for hemostasis in endoscopic sinus surgery with high patient satisfaction and an easy and fast mode of application.

Effect of Carboxymethylcellulose Nasal Packing on Wound Healing after Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
The efficacy of carboxy-methylated cellulose nasal packing after functional endoscopic sinus surgery is questioned and the necessity of its use after FESS is questioned based on the technique of the Graz University Medical School.
The Role of Mitomycin C in Preventing Synechia and Stenosis after Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
The topical application of MMC did not decrease the incidence of stenosis and synechia formation after ESS, and this difference was not statistically significant.

TLDR
MeroGel® can be considered a valid alternative to standard non-resorbable nasal dressings and may favor improved healing in patients undergoing FESS and reduce formation of adhesions.
