Nasal and Sinus Implant Options
At times, a nasal implant may be necessary to reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and ultimately help patients Breathe Better Now. Did you know that nasal breathing is responsible for about 70% of the airflow to the lungs? If there is an obstruction of any kind, it can reduce airflow through the nose and affect a patient’s quality of life. Some of the symptoms of an obstruction include:
- Nasal congestion
- Nasal blockage
- Difficulty breathing through your nose
- Trouble sleeping
- Inability to get enough air during any kind of exertion or activity
We also have a sinus quiz where you can evaluate where you are on a scale of difficulty with your breathing. If you have an obstruction, there are a couple of medical breakthrough options that Dr. Kuperan with Houston Advanced Nose & Sinus recommends: The LATERA SPIROX nasal implant and the PROPEL sinus stent. Dr. Kuperan recommends these implants as they have been proven to improve the outcomes of surgery by minimizing post-operative inflammation.
