PROPEL® SINUS STENT
Chronic Sinusitis Relief that Lasts
Propel® Sinus Stent implant is clinically proven to improve surgical outcomes for chronic sinusitis sufferers. The stent device helps to keep sinuses open, help deliver anti-inflammatory medication directly to the healing tissues, and then dissolve. Propel®’s spring-like, lightweight design means patients usually cannot even tell that it is there.
How It’s Used
Sinusitis, the inflammation of the linings of the sinuses, can lead to frequent infections and nasal blockage – greatly impacting quality of life. The first line of treatment is typically medications, however is symptoms persist, minimally invasive sinus surgery may be an option. The Propel® Stent is a dissolvable stent that is placed at the end of sinus surgery to keep the sinuses open, eliminating the need for gauze packing used in older surgical techniques. Propel® delivers anti-inflammatory medication directly to the healing tissue to help improve surgical outcome and enhance healing by reducing post-operative scarring. Propel® dissolves within 45 days, so no removal procedure is necessary.
