The PROPEL® Implant And How It Can Help Your Chronic Sinusitis
Millions of Americans suffer from sinusitis. Sinusitis occurs when the tissue lining the sinuses becomes inflamed and the sinuses become blocked. An ENT physician can determine the cause of the blockage and recommend the proper medications or procedures to open the sinuses allowing for normal sinus drainage.
For patients who do not respond to medication, sinus surgery is often needed to open the blocked sinuses. Endoscopic surgery such as Balloon Sinuplasty is preferred over traditional surgery as it is less invasive, less expensive, and has a lower rate of complications. In order to improve surgical outcomes, the use of the PROPEL® implant may be recommended.
The PROPEL® implant is used in conjunction with sinus surgery to help keep the sinuses open while they are healing. The PROPEL® implant is placed in the ethmoid sinus following surgery. After being inserted by a physician, the spring-like PROPEL® implant expands to prop open the ethmoid sinus, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal. It is clinically proven to improve surgical outcomes for chronic sinusitis sufferers.
The PROPEL® implant opens the sinus cavities, decreases scarring and inflammation thereby reducing the need for additional surgical procedures and systemic steroids1. You can also read More info on chronic sinusitis.
