NBC Covers the Propel Sinus Stent
I occasionally write about promising new technologies in sinus surgery, including innovations such as balloon sinuplasty and the PROPEL sinus stent. Now it seems our local news is getting the word as well: here in Los Angeles, NBC recently ran a piece outlining the lasting benefits of the Propel stent for many sinusitis sufferers:
As the accompanying article states, the stent’s great breakthrough is the unobtrusive way it eliminates painful recovery and packing:
Once inside, the mesh springs open and pushes itself against the sinus walls, keeping the nasal passages open during the healing process. At the same time, the implant delivers a dose of steroids to the tissue in the nose, which can reduce inflammation and scarring during recovery. . . . The implant dissolves completely in three to four weeks, and the patient never feels the device. It also eliminates the need to pack the nose with gauze or other material after the surgery.
