Aurora ENT offers a non-surgical procedure for patients who suffer from repeat nasal polyps with SINUVA™ (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant. SINUVA is proven to reduce polyps and nasal congestion and obstruction.
What is SINUVA?
SINUVA is a sinus implant that treats nasal polyps without surgery. During a routine office visit, Dr. Totten will use topical and/or local anesthesia to numb the patient's nose and sinuses. SINUVA is then placed in the sinus cavity through the nasal opening.
How SINUVA Works?
Its innovative design provides a 2-in-1 approach: it is designed to open in the sinus caivty and release anti-inflammatory medicine to treat nasal polyps for up to 90 days.
SINUVA benefits (At Day 90)
The most common adverse reactions observed in a clinical trial were bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headache, light-headedness, asthma and nose bleed. SINUVA is indicated for adults with nasal polyps who have had ethmoid sinus surgery.
