When applying Chitogel, it is important to apply the Gel to all areas in a specific sequence.
- 10 mL of Chitogel is to be applied to each side.
- Apply the Gel to the sinuses in order, firstly applying to the frontal sinus.
- Bend the tip of the malleable cannula for the angle required to place accurately into the frontal ostium. Next, place Chitogel into the sphenoid sinus, then fill the ethmoid sinuses in a posterior to anterior direction, and then around the maxillary ostium.
- Lastly, apply to the space between the anterior end of the middle turbinate and the lateral nasal wall. It’s important to leave space in the floor of the nose so the patient will have a bilateral nasal airway.
