To date, hundreds of thousands of AMT Bridles have been placed in over hundreds of institutions and there has been no documented increase of incidents of sinusitis associated with the use of the AMT Bridle Family of Devices. Specifically, the Bridle Pro™ has the new bridle tubing which is a monofilament. This bridle tubing offers approximately 60% less surface area than umbilical tape bridles and is easy to clean.
All tubes passing through the nasal cavity can irritate the nasal mucosa.The Bridle Pro™ bridle tubing is very soft and was designed with patient comfort in mind. No lubricant is needed while placing the Bridle Pro™ device due to the soft and smooth material, however, lubricant may be used if desired. The AMT Bridle™ umbilical tape should be lubricated before placement. The Bridle tape should rest without tension in the nose when properly applied. Any minor irritation of the nasal mucosa will heal rapidly when the Bridle and tube(s) are removed.
If a patient pulls on the tube secured with the AMT Bridle™ or Bridle Pro™, they will create pressure on the vomer bone at the back of the nasal septum/vomer bone, which will cause discomfort. This negative reinforcement will deter most patients from pulling further on their tube. Despite this, some patients will continue to pull. The increased force on the tube will cause the outside diameter of the feeding tube to narrow and slip through the clip before damage occurs to the vomer bone at the back of the nasal septum.
