Medtronic Hydrodebrider Endoscopic Sinus Irrigation System
The Hydrodebrider Endoscopic Sinus Irrigation System has a flexible tip which allows 220 degrees of articulation, making the difficult to reach maxillary and frontal sinus locations accessible. There is a smaller 2.2 mm alternate “Frontal” hand piece for reaching the frontal sinus.
The hand piece delivers 5 ml/sec of pressurized saline, which has been shown to be superior to regular sinus rinses in dislodging bacterial and fungal elements. The tip is capable of suctioning and irrigating simultaneously. The saline can be mixed with other medications to include steroid, antifungals, or antibiotics depending on the etiology and desired effect.
