Sinusitis is a widespread condition affecting 37 million Americans. This inflammation of the sinuses occurs when the sinus opening becomes blocked, preventing mucus from draining properly. It causes cold-like symptoms that include congestion, runny nose, sore throat, facial pain and swelling, loss of smell or taste, bad breath, fatigue and headache.

Propel Sinus Implant
The Propel steroid-releasing implant is an alternative treatment for patients experiencing chronic sinus infections. It targets the inflamed sinus tissues directly, opening them up for improved drainage and a reduction in symptoms.
The implant resembles a spring and delivers a measured dose of mometasone furoate, an anti-inflammatory steroid that gradually dissolves. It is completely absorbed by the body four to six weeks after implantation.
