the impact can be aggravating and uncomfortable.

  • Chemical inhalants
  • Cocaine use

  • Small anterior lesions may cause a whistling sound
  • Larger perforations may cause crusting, bloody discharge, difficulty breathing, nasal pressure,
    and discomfort
  • Rhinorrhea
  • Epistaxis
  • Infection


OPTIONS TO FIT

Available in multiple round and oval shapes, sizes and thicknesses. The Blom-Singer® Nasal Septal Perforation Prosthesis offers multiple sizes and shapes to close nasal septal perforations. A better fit means less pistoning, less side to side movement and a reduction in bleeding and crusting.

MAGENTIC COUPLING
Precisely molded medical grade silicone covers neodymium magnets that couple to fit with a strong, reliable attachment force.

EASE OF INSERTION
Studies have documented that patients using a two (2) piece magnetically coupled nasal septal button experienced no particular discomfort on insertion, removal or replacement while all cases reported a precise, tight fit. A magnetic-based technique ensures a more practical debris removal procedure for the attending ENT specialist. 1
