What is the PROPEL Sinus Stent Procedure?

PROPEL is a small, innovative, stent-like device intended for use following ethmoid sinus surgery to maintain the open passages created in surgery. Sinus surgery with the PROPEL sinus stent uses a clever combination of device design and medication delivery to improve the outcomes of surgery and provide relief of chronic sinusitis symptoms at the source.

Nasal Airway Implants Offer Breathing Relief to Patients Suffering From Nasal Valve Congestion

  • Obstructions in the nasal airway in the form of congestion, stuffiness, or mechanical blockage can lead to breathing problems resulting in sleep disruption, snoring and severe quality of life impairment. Narrowing or blockage of the nasal airway is often caused by a collapsed nasal wall or a deviated septum. To treat this problematic condition, nasal implants are used as an innovative and minimally invasive technology to give cartilage support to the nasal cartilages and lateral nasal wall.
  • A common worry among patients is having something foreign implanted inside their nose. The bioabsorbable nasal airway implants start dissolving in the body within 9-12 months and are completely dissolved by 18-24 months. As the implants dissolve, they fill in with collagen, stabilizing the valve forever and providing lifelong breathing relief.
