People who suffer from chronic sinusitis often experience nasal polyps. Nasal polyps are inflammatory, non-cancerous growths along the lining of the nasal passages that can obstruct the flow of air as well as cause congestion, nasal discharge, facial pain and a loss of smell.
For the more than 500,000 people in the U.S. who undergo endoscopic sinus surgery each year for the treatment of chronic sinusitis, as many as 60% of patients experience a recurrence of nasal polyps.
Mid-Kansas Ear, Nose and Throat is pleased to offer SINUVA¹, a cutting-edge, non-surgical treatment for nasal polyps in adults who have had previous ethmoid sinus surgery (ESS). SINUVA (mometasone furoate) is designed to reduce nasal congestion, obstruction and polyps.²
SINUVA is an implant placed into the nasal opening during a routine physician office visit. The implant expands, delivering an anti-inflammatory medicine directly into the sinus cavity for up to 90 days. The implant then softens over time and may be expelled out of the nose on its own, or through sneezing or nose blowing. It can be removed at 90 days or earlier at the doctor’s discretion.
Why Chose SINUVA?
SINUVA may be appealing to nasal polyp sufferers who would prefer an in-office treatment instead of sinus surgery in an operating room. SINUVA is placed during an office visit and patients are usually able to resume normal activities with little to no recovery days needed.
SINUVA was clinically proven to1,2
- Shrink nasal polyps at 90 days
- Reduce symptoms of nasal obstruction and congestion
- Improve patients altered sense of smell
The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical trials were bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headache, light-headedness, asthma and nose bleed.
SINUVA is not for people with hypersensitivity to corticosteroids or those with nasal ulcers or trauma. See more Important Safety Information below.
