The Propel sinus implant is an innovative new dissolvable device that can be used in sinus surgery to help reduce inflammation and speed recovery. Propel is a localized delivery system that can offer localized, controlled delivery of a steroid medication to the sinus tissues.
This device is inserted by Dr. Egan under anesthesia and expands to prop open the sinus tissues while it delivers the anti-inflammatory medication. It has been clinically proven to prevent obstruction of the ethmoid sinus after surgery. This can reduce the need for additional procedures and provide more long lasting relief to patients.
