The support you need with proven hemostatic control

HemoPore bioresorbable nasal dressing delivers the support and stability of our NasoPore dressings—with the added clinical benefits of chitosan lactate, a proven hemostatic agent.

We blended chitosan lactate directly into our proprietary synthetic polymer while preserving the high performance NasoPore has always delivered.1

HemoPore’s gentle to firm compression strength helps prevent adhesions and minimizes edema—while it keeps structures separated and stable. The result for you and your patients: reliable tissue support and hemostatic control without the need for separate topical hemostats.

Stability, control, convenience

  • Integrated chitosan lactate hemostat reduces need for topical hemostats
  • Supports vital tissue structures for 36 to 48 hours1
  • Fragments in 10 to 14 days1
  • Helps prevent adhesions
  • Clears through natural mucosal flow—no need for manual or painful removal
  • No need for mixing, moistening, injection syringes or other prep

Unique two-way action Tissue support plus platelet activation and aggregation

In vitro data shows HemoPore accelerates blood coagulation and healing by prompting higher platelet activation and aggregation than similar hemostatic products and NasoPore Firm.2 This enhanced hemostatic action combined with 36 to 48 hours of tissue support and stenting provides a dual-action dressing option.

Chitosan Proven to drive the wound healing process3

Harnessing the power of chitosan as a hemostatic agent is another groundbreaking medical advance made by military science.3 In numerous studies, this polysaccharide from the shells of sea crustaceans has been shown to speed the wound healing process.1-9

With proven safety and biocompatibility for human use, chitosan:

  • Spurs resting platelets into activation; helping them adhere to collagen4-6
  • Fosters platelet aggregation; forming platelet plugs that accelerate blood coagulation4, 6-8
  • Has inherent antimicrobial properties9
  • Helps avoid the need for direct acting topical hemostats
