Medtronic Xomed Umbrella Vent Tube-1.02mm ID
Part # 1016030 Exp 6/11
When inserted through a myringotomy, a Medtronic Xomed Umbrella Vent Tube provides a passageway for movement of air between the auditory canal and the middle ear. The unobstructed passageway may also allow a means of drainage of fluids resulting from acute or chronic otitis media from the middle ear into the auditory canal. In addition, surgical placement of ventilation tubes also provides a means of equalizing air pressures between the outer ear and the middle ear and continued ventilation to prevent fluid accumulation within the middle ear.
• Soft, easy to manipulate
• Proven biocompatibility in otologic applications
• Silicone elastomer tubes are easily compressed to aid in insertion while retaining shape
In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
