PROPEL 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.
The PROPEL sinus implant is intended for use in patients ≥ 18 years of age following ethmoid sinus surgery to maintain patency, thereby reducing the need for post-operative intervention such as surgical adhesion lysis and/or use of oral steroids. The PROPEL sinus implant separates mucosal tissues, provides stabilization of the middle turbinate, prevents obstruction by adhesions, and reduces edema.
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
