Nasal Polyps

Nasal Polyps

What Are Nasal Polyps?

Nasal polyps are soft, painless, noncancerous growths on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses. They hang down like teardrops or grapes. They result from chronic inflammation and are associated with asthma, recurring infection, allergies, drug sensitivity or certain immune disorders.

Small nasal polyps may not cause symptoms. Larger growths or groups of nasal polyps can block your nasal passages or lead to breathing problems, a lost sense of smell and frequent infections.

Nasal polyps can affect anyone, but they’re more common in adults. Medications can often shrink or eliminate nasal polyps, but surgery is sometimes needed to remove them.



The providers at Advanced Specialty Associates now offers SINUVA® (mometasonefuroate) Sinus Implant as an alternative to surgery and other treatment options for recurrent nasal polyps. SINUVA is clinically proven to shrink nasal polyps and reduce nasal obstruction/congestion without surgery.

What is SUNUVA? 

SINUVA is a treatment for adult patients with nasal polyps who have previously received an ethmoid sinus surgery and require further treatment. This nasal implant is placed in a minimally invasive, in-office procedure. Once inserted, the treatment is designed to open up the sinus and deliver anti-inflammatory medication to treat nasal polyps.

Benefits of SINUVA:

  • In office placement of steroid eluting implant for recurrent polyposis
  • No surgery required
  • Simple and effective procedure
  • Removes polyps
  • Improves symptoms such as sinus headaches, nasal congestion, loss of smell and loss of taste caused by nasal polyps
  • Reduces symptoms of nasal obstruction and congestion for up to 90 days
  • Decrease chance of repeat sinus surgery compared to patients who do not receive SINUVA



What is PROPEL?
The PROPEL implant is a small, flexible spring that holds the airway open following a surgical procedure. Once in place, the PROPEL stent slowly releases a corticosteroid known as mometasone furoate to promote faster healing in the surrounding tissues. These dual functions — the stenting and the speedy healing — create lasting improvement, with fewer complications after surgery. And there is no need for a follow-up visit to remove the device: the Propel implant dissolves harmlessly on its own.
