Propel Mometasone Furoate Implant

PROPEL is clinically proven to improve surgical outcomes for chronic sinusitis sufferers.

When placed in the sinus following surgery, PROPEL decreases scarring and inflammation, reducing the need for additional surgical procedures and oral steroids that can have serious side effects.

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. Talk with your doctor to see if PROPEL is the right option for you.

Post-operative care

After surgery, you will receive detailed instructions about your post-operative care. Although details may vary, your care may include nasal irrigation (e.g. Neilmed Sinus Rinse), oral antibiotics and pain medicine. Take all of your medication as directed for the best outcomes.

After surgery you can expect some bleeding, drainage and discomfort (e.g. pain, headaches). Sleeping with your head elevated 30 degrees is helpful to reduce sinus swelling and bleeding. Try your best not to blow your nose, bend over, lift heavy objects or physically exert yourself for 1-2 weeks after surgery. If you have to sneeze or cough, keep your mouth open and avoid pinching your nose.
