Press Release Oct. 2005
Order Form
Featuring a new elliptical post 5mm X 18mm with two flange diameters 30 mm and 40 mm for improved performance.  Exclusively distributed by Medical Innovations, the NEW Improved Elliptical Nasal Septal Button™ was invented by Dr. Gordon Wood and marketed by SilMed™.

                       

The disadvantages of the common nasal septal button not being able to remain stable within the nasal septal perforation was the motivation for Dr. Wood to re-engineer the traditional nasal septal button *. 

The Dr. Wood re-engineered nasal septal button, features two circular flanges connected by a central post. The central post is elliptical in shape. This elliptical shape provides restricted movement and thus less irritation bleeding and crusting.

The button is constructed using medical grade silicone and can be trimmed at the time of placement to provide the best possible fit to the nasal perforation.  Years of clinical experience have shown that the use of the NEW Improved Elliptical Septal Button has decreased symptoms of nasal perforations including epistaxis and crusting while improving nasal respiration and overall patient comfort.***

Advantages:

 

With the improved septal button design*, the elliptical central post can be used as

is or sized to the perforation. Thus, potentially minimizing slippage, bleeding and crusting.

 

Years of clinical experience has shown the use of the NEW Elliptical-Post Septal Button™ developed by Dr. Wood has decreased symptoms of nasal perforations including epistaxis and crusting while improving nasal respiration and patient comfort. ***
