PROPEL Mini placement in Frontal & Ethmoid Sinus

An example of placement technique for deploying PROPEL Mini implant in frontal and ethmoid sinus.

The PROPEL sinus implants are indicated to maintain patency and locally deliver steroid to the sinus mucosa in patients ≥18 years of age after sinus surgery: PROPEL for the ethmoid sinus, PROPEL Mini for the ethmoid sinus/frontal sinus opening, and PROPEL Contour for the frontal/maxillary sinus ostia. Contraindications include patients with intolerance to mometasone furoate (MF) or hypersensitivity to bioabsorbable polymers. Safety and effectiveness of the implant in pregnant or nursing females have not been studied. Risks may include, but are not limited to, pain/pressure, displacement of the implant, possible side effects of intranasal MF, sinusitis, epistaxis, and infection. Rx only.
