Dr. Jay Raisen, M.D. offers a non-surgical procedure for patients who suffer from repeat nasal polyps with SINUVA TM (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implat. 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. Jay 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 cavity and release anti-inflammatory medicine to treat nasal polyps for up to 90 days.
SINUVA benefits (At Day 90)
- Significantly reduces nasal obstruction and congestion
- Significantly improves impaired sense of smell
The most common adverse reactions observed in a clinical trial were broncitis, 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.
