PVA tamponades consist of a unique hydroxylated polyvinyl acetate sponge. PVA tamponades are completely fibre and abrasion-free. They are characterised by good biocompatibility and excellent fluid take-up and transport with minimised wound adhesion. Due to the compressed shape, they are easy to insert. They adjust gently and optimally to the anatomical conditions and if necessary, can simply be cut to size with scissors.
