Spirox Latera

Simply breathe better with Latera

Constantly Suffering From Nasal Obstruction?

Are you familiar with breathe right strips, or the constant pulling of your cheek to the side so you can breathe better? Even the slightest narrowing of the nose can reduce the amount of air when you breathe. Spirox has developed a permanent solution for these symptoms. Latera is a small (only 24 millimeters long) device that is placed inside the wall of the nose. The procedure only takes a few minutes and patients have seen immediate improvement after. Broward Sinus Doctors are trained and qualified to perform the procedure in-office. Most insurance companies cover the procedure, so contact us today to find out more information or to request an appointment.

What Patients Are Saying

“Nasal sprays gave me minor relief, but I felt like I was putting a band-aid on the situation… I contacted an ENT specialist and they discovered I have a deviated septum. Another thing they discovered is that I had internal valve collapse… They inserted LATERA and that prevented the valve collapse in my nose. I immediately noticed a difference… I could breathe. I noticed immediately, the increased airflow.”

“At this point in my life I was real desperate. I tried many different options from nasal rinsing to Breathe Right® strips, but it was pretty much a short-term thing. I needed something that would work longer and benefit me more in the long run…He told me about this implant called LATERA that would help increase my breathing and I took it right away… And it’s really made a difference for me in every aspect of my life.”


“The most appealing thing about LATERA to me was my appearance wouldn’t really change…The very next day I went out and saw people that I know, and nobody noticed anything different.”

Temporary Symptoms

Anatomy of the Nose

Increase Airflow

If you experience difficulty breathing through your nose, or rely on nasal strips to help you breathe better you may have a collapsed lateral wall. Patients who have undergone a rhinoplasty are also subject to having a weak lateral wall. This small implant may be a solution to a revision rhinoplasty.

Cottle Maneuver:

This simple test can determine if your breathing significantly improves during inspiration. If you notice a significant improvement in your breathing Latera may be right for you.

Spirox Latera Absorbable Nasal Implant:

The small implant supports the upper & lower cartilage in your nose. It is placed inside the wall of your nose and during approximately 18 months the implant material, which is absorbed strengthens the wall of the nose providing a permanent relief/solution.
