Sugi® Rhino Swabs

Sterile Disposable Absorbent Swabs

Nasal surgery swabs with retrieval cord according to Prof. Dr. H. Stammberger. Sugi® Rhino Swabs are ideal for absorbing blood and secretion from the wound area during endoscopic nasal surgery. The sponge material made of pure cotton and regenerated cellulose can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in aqueous solutions in less than 3 seconds. Sugi® absorbent swabs can also be used as a vehicle for vasoconstrictor medication. The highly biocompatible swabs and strips have exceptional tear resistance.
