Propel is a revolutionary device proven to improve the outcome of nasal surgery performed to treat chronic sinusitis. Propel is a device that keeps the sinuses open and supported following sinus surgery. The device allows for the slow release of anti-inflammatory medication directly into the sinus tissues and supporting the internal structure of the sinuses during healing, after which the device dissolves.
How does Propel Work?
Propel is a miniature implant, shaped as a small ring to gently expand the sinuses. The lightweight design of Propel makes it comfortable and barely noticeable for the patient. The device slowly releases a corticosteroid, mometasone furoate, which has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritation and speed healing following nose surgery.
What are the Benefits of Propel?
The benefits of Propel include:
- Reduces the need for post-operative intervention, such as revision surgery
- Reduces the need for oral or systemic steroids
- Reduces inflammation
- Reduces risk of scarring
- Improves post-surgical results
Am I a Good Candidate for Propel?
If you are over 18 years of age, free from hypersensitivity to steroidal medications or mometasone furoate, then you could be a candidate for Propel after sinus surgery. Propel is an excellent option for those suffering from sinusitis who must undergo surgery to relieve the condition.
