PROPEL Sinus Implant
About PROPEL Mometasone Furoate Implant
PROPEL® implant is clinically proven to improve surgical outcomes for chronic sinusitis sufferers.
PROPEL® is the first of a new category of products offering localized, controlled drug delivery directly to the sinus tissue. When placed in the sinus following surgery, PROPEL® decreases scarring and inflammation, reducing the need for additional surgical procedures as well as oral steroids and their potential side effects.

How Does It Work?
Inserted by a physician to maintain the surgical opening, the spring-like PROPEL® implant props open the ethmoid sinus to maintain the surgical opening, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining, and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal.
The specialists at Red River ENT Associates offer this service to patients suffering from chronic sinusitis.
Frequent sinus irrigations are very important for the healing process. Irrigation supplies (e.g. Neilmed Sinus Rinse™, LAVI Sinus Wash) can be purchased at most pharmacies. Additionally, if PROPEL® was implanted, you may notice thin white fragments migrate from your nose as it dissolves - this is normal.
