Treatment of Recurrent Nasal Polyps In Santa Monica & Torrance, CA
Reduce Nasal Polyps without Surgery
Dr. Daneshrad offers a non-surgical procedure for patients who suffer from repeat nasal polyps with SINUVA™ (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant. SINUVA is proven to reduce polyps, nasal congestion and obstruction.
What is SINUVA?
SINUVA is a sinus implant that treats nasal polyps without surgery. It opens the sinus cavities allowing for better air movement and breathing while it is also slowly releasing steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (mometasone furoate) into the sinus cavities over the course of 90 days.
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 Placement – What to Expect
During a routine office visit of about 30 minutes, most of which is spent on numbing the nose, Dr. Daneshrad will use topical and/or local anesthesia to numb the patient’s nose and sinuses. SINUVA is then gently placed in the sinus cavity through the nasal opening. Once in place the SINUVA will expand to open the sinus cavity and begin to slowly release the anti-inflammatory medication over the next 90 days to shrink the nasal polyps.
- Non-surgical reduction of recurrent polyps
- Delivery of medication over 90 days for sustained relief
- Significant reduction of nasal obstruction and congestion
- Significant improvement of the impaired sense of smell
Who is a Candidate for SINUVA?
If you are over 18 years of age, have had prior ethmoidectomy and removal of nasal polyps, and are experiencing obstructed breathing or a loss of the sense of smell, then Sinuva may be the appropriate treatment for long-term relief.
If you experience adverse reactions to steroids or steroid-based medications, then Sinuva may not be indicated in your case. If you also have any known sensitivity to mometasone furoate released by the Sinuva implant, then you may not be a candidate. If you have a history of nasal polyps and have noticed a return of sinus pressure, loss of the sense of smell, or nasal congestion then schedule a consultation with Dr. Daneshrad to verify whether Sinuva is an effective treatment option for you.
Side Effects of SINUVA
The most common adverse reactions observed in a clinical trial were bronchitis, 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.
