Sinus surgery may be the only option for patients with chronic sinusitis. During the surgery, the ENT doctor will enter the sinuses to clean out the infection. While surgery provides benefits to many patients, inflammation and scarring can occur and reduce the benefits of the surgery.
PROPEL is placed in the sinus following surgery, and decreases scarring and inflammation, reducing the need for additional surgical procedures as well as oral steroids and their potential side effects.
The spring-like PROPEL implant props open the ethmoid sinus to maintain the surgical opening, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining, and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal.
