Minimally invasive surgery with placement of the revolutionary PROPEL® sinus stent provides relief for people with chronic sinusitis.
Sinusitis is an exhausting condition that can have a challenging path to relief. Sinusitis can rob the sense of smell and taste. It can make it difficult to breathe and impossible to sleep.*
When you suffer from chronic sinusitis, the symptoms that impact your life are real, painful and frustrating. Thankfully there are new sinusitis treatment options and advances to open up the sinuses—and keep them open.MORE ABOUT SINUSITIS
Chronic sinusitis is inflammation or swelling of the sinus cavities that blocks airflow and drainage and lasts more than 12 weeks. To find relief, the blockage needs to be removed and the sinus openings enlarged to allow air to circulate and mucus to drain. Minimally invasive sinus surgery can be an effective treatment for chronic sinusitis because it removes any blockages and widens the sinus openings.
The PROPEL® sinus stent has been proven to improve the results of sinus surgery by minimizing post-operative inflammation.1
PROPEL is a small sinus stent coated with an anti-inflammatory medicine that is placed after sinus surgery. The spring-like design allows it to securely prop the sinuses open, and deliver medicine directly to the sinus tissue. Minimally invasive sinus surgery with PROPEL is clinically proven to provide relief to people with chronic sinusitis.* PROPEL SAFETY INFORMATION
If you suffer from chronic sinus infections, you may need to see an ENT physician, who is also called an ear, nose, and throat doctor or an otolaryngologist. These specialized physicians are experts in both the medical and surgical management of chronic sinusitis.
Intersect ENT makes information about physicians and facilities that offer PROPEL® sinus stents available. Physicians and facilities are listed based upon proximity to the zip code you have entered.
