The general practitioner as well as the rhinologist can find use for a good intranasal splint to hold cotton or gauze in contact with the septum. The cotton can be dusted with a powder, moistened with a liquid, or impregnated with a salve, and accurately held in contact with the membranes. It is useful in the treatment of fractures of the nose, epistaxis, ulcerations, etc. To the operating rhinologist, a strong and adjustable splint is indispensable. The splint here illustrated fills all of these needs. It is readily adjustable to any degree of pressure. It is made in two parts, making it very easy of introduction. When properly placed, it allows free breathing through the nostrils.
