Flow Chart

The new PosiSep® X and PosiSep products will maintain all the high performance functional features as the previous version but incorporate the handling and comfort attributes that surgeons have been asking for, namely a thinner, smoother sponge that allows for optimal field of view and for easy placement. Most importantly these improved features lead to more comfort for the patient.

Different Platforms for Your Individual Needs...

Recognizing that each surgeon’s preferences and the anatomy of each patient’s sinuses are not identical, Hemostasis has developed multiple platforms of our PosiSep® hemostat sinus splints to meet those varying needs.

PosiSep®

Comes as a firm sponge and turns into a gel after placement in the sinus cavity and hydration with saline or moisture in the sinus.

PosiSep®X

Comes as a firm sponge and expands after placement in the sinus cavity and hydration with saline.









With a New Proprietary Technology...

We have developed a new and improved version of PosiSep gel and sponge to meet the additional needs of the market place. PosiSep & PosiSep X now use our proprietary NOCC (N-O-carboxymethylchitosan) technology. NOCC is scientifically formulated to make the PosiSep sponges into an advanced water soluble chitosan sponge which are designed to be very flexible and soft. Our NOCC polymer has been widely studied in the prevention of surgical adhesions.

*PosiSep & PosiSep X are currently available.*
