PROPEL is a lightweight, dissolvable stent placed following surgery to keep the sinus open while delivering anti-inflammatory medicine.1
Your doctor will place the dissolvable PROPEL stent at the end of surgery. Your PROPEL stent will continue to deliver needed medication for up to 30 days. It dissolves while it’s in your nose, so removal isn’t needed.1 Your physician may choose to remove PROPEL sooner.
PROPEL works by delivering medication directly to the sinus
PROPEL may improve your sinus surgery outcomes
Please see important safety information at the bottom of the page.
Each PROPEL stent features a unique 2-in-1 mechanism that allows it to open the sinus while supplying steroids directly to the sinus where it’s needed.1
PROPEL keeps the sinuses open while releasing mometasone furoate, an advanced steroid.
In combined information from two clinical studies with 143 patients, PROPEL sinus stent showed significant reduction in the need for post-surgery medical treatment.
Patients reported significantly reduced symptoms 6 months after sinus surgery and PROPEL implant1
Patients experienced a 35% reduction in the need for additional medical treatment after surgery at 30 days, compared to patients that had a stent without medication in it1
Patients with and without nasal polyps achieved reductions in the need for post-surgery medical treatment1
At Day 30, patients reduced the need for oral steroids by 40% (relative reduction)1
PROPEL has a proven safety profile – the most common side effects seen in trials were infection, bronchitis, headache and nose bleeds.
*Individual results may vary
Once your stent is placed after surgery, make sure you follow your doctor’s instructions.
You’ll want to use a saline rinse several times a day – this is key to helping you heal
A saline rinse may be helpful right before your follow-up visit
As PROPEL dissolves, you may see thin, white fragments come out of your nose – this is normal. Most people don’t feel the PROPEL stent in their noses.
