If persistent sinus symptoms persist despite medication, sinus surgery may be considered. The objective of the surgery is to expand the inflamed or obstructed sinus airways, promoting increased airflow and a decreased risk of infection. Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) surgeons utilize an endoscope, a small instrument, to examine the sinuses through the nasal opening. By removing inflamed bone and tissue that obstruct airflow and passages, the sinuses are enlarged. This facilitates natural drainage, prevents the accumulation of pus and mucus, and reduces the likelihood of infection.
Although surgery offers benefits to many patients, inflammation and scarring may occur, potentially diminishing the effectiveness of the procedure or causing symptoms to reoccur.
The clinically proven PROPEL® sinus stent enhances the outcomes of sinus surgery. Implanted during the surgery, the PROPEL stent delivers anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinuses. This reduces the necessity for additional post-operative surgeries and oral steroids.
