Balloon sinuplasty has taken its place as an important tool to treat people with chronic sinus issues. The procedure involves using a catheter to open the sinus passages, promoting better drainage and offering relief from sinusitis.
The medical field is constantly evolving, and even safe, highly effective procedures can be improved and enhanced. That is the case with Propel technology for balloon sinuplasty.
Propel is a dissolvable stent used to hold the nasal passages open after surgery. It is created from an innovative material that dissolves over time while also releasing anti-inflammatory medication to assist in the healing process.
In clinical trials, Propel has been shown safe and is the only sinus surgery product proven with level 1-A evidence as to its effectiveness and safety. It reduces scarring, inflammation, and polyps while also lowering the need for oral steroid medication or further surgery.
