Localized Sinus Drug Delivery

Intersect ENT has developed the PROPEL family of dissolvable implants for chronic sinusitis patients undergoing sinus surgery; the first and only sinus surgery product backed by Level 1-A evidence which improves sinus surgery outcomes.1

propel logoPROPEL sinus implants are the first of a new category of products offering localized, controlled drug delivery directly to the sinus tissue. The spring-like implant is inserted by a physician to maintain the surgical opening, prop open the ethmoid sinus, and gradually deliver an advanced corticosteroid (mometasone furoate) with anti-inflammatory properties directly to the sinus lining as the implant dissolves.

PROPEL sinus implants are clinically proven to reduce post operative ethmoid interventions following surgery.1 The results show improved outcomes including improved post-operative outcomes, reducing the need for systemic steroids and additional surgical procedures, such as adhesion lysis.1

PROPEL Sinus Implant Meta-Analysis:
Safety and Effectiveness Following Ethmoid Sinus Surgery

PROPEL provides meaningful benefits to patients: PROPEL maintains the opening created during surgery by reducing post-operative scarring, inflammation, polyposis and middle turbinate lateralization. Reducing such scarring and inflammation is essential to improve long-term outcomes and reduce the need for revision surgery.2,3

The PROPEL sinus implant is intended for use following ethmoid sinus surgery to maintain patency. PROPEL Mini is intended for use following ethmoid or frontal sinus surgery to maintain patency. The implants are intended for use in patients ≥18 years of age. Contraindications include patients with intolerance to mometasone furoate (MF) or a hypersensitivity to bioabsorbable polymers. Safety and effectiveness of the implant in pregnant or nursing females has not been studied. Risks may include pain/pressure, displacement of implant, and possible side effects of intranasal MF. The most common adverse events in clinical studies were sinusitis, headache, epistaxis and bronchitis. For complete prescribing information see IFU at www.intersectent.com. Rx only.
