Each year 31 million people are afflicted with chronic sinusitis, making it one of the most common health conditions in the United States. The sinuses are air-filled cavities located within the bones around the nose and eyes that allow for natural ventilation and drainage. In Chronic Sinusitis, the sinus linings become inflamed, blocking the natural drainage passageways and leading to chronic infections and nasal obstruction.
Patients with chronic sinusitis often suffer from debilitating symptoms such as facial pain or pressure, nasal congestion and difficulty breathing, discolored nasal discharge, loss of smell and taste, headache, fatigue and depression.
PROPEL is clinically proven to improve surgical outcomes for chronic sinusitis sufferers.
When placed in the sinus following surgery, PROPEL 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.
