US-based Cook Medical has introduced Biodesign ENT Repair Graft, which acts as an adjunct to help in the healing process following nasal and sinus mucosal surgery.

The latest Biodesign offering from Cook Medical’s Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (OHNS) clinical division was launched at the American Rhinologic Society’s 2013 Summer Sinus Symposium.

Designed particularly for grafting in the nasal passages, the Biodesign ENT Repair Graft enables the body to fully remodel the graft into patient tissue.

Further, physicians can easily handle the graft and it eliminates the need to harvest graft tissue from other parts of the body.

Cook Medical OHNS global clinical division Thomas Cherry noted the tissue repair technology is thoroughly studied, and has been shown to work in many different areas of the body.

"Biodesign has long been a part of the Cook Medical family and we are excited to introduce it to rhinologists."

Since 1998, Cook’s Biodesign technology has been used to treat more than 750,000 patients across the world.

The Biodesign ENT Repair Graft has secured 510(k) clearance in February 2013 in the US.
