SINUVA is an innovative technology that reduces polyps and nasal congestion and obstruction with a 2-in-1 approach:
SINUVA is a nasal polyp treatment without surgery:
- Delivered into the sinus cavity through the nasal opening during a routine office visit
- Usually cannot be felt once it’s in place2
- Removed at 90 days or earlier at your doctor’s discretion
How well does SINUVA work?
- SINUVA may be an alternative to surgery and other treatment options for adults who have already had ethmoid sinus surgery
- SINUVA is proven to shrink nasal polyps and reduce nasal obstruction and congestion
- As it stays in the sinus and continues to release medicine, SINUVA offers sustained relief from nasal congestion/obstruction up to 90 days
- In addition, SINUVA has been shown to improve a patient’s impaired sense of smell
How is SINUVA placed?
SINUVA is placed in your doctor’s office. After numbing your nose, your doctor will introduce the SINUVA implant into your nostril on the end of a delivery system, and place the implant within your sinus.
Is SINUVA safe?
The safety of SINUVA was established in 400 patients in 2 clinical trials
- The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical studies were bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headache, lightheadedness, asthma, and nose bleed
- The risks from SINUVA are similar to those associated with other endoscopic sinus procedures, such as nose bleed, injuries to blood vessels, and bacterial infection
- SINUVA is not for people with hypersensitivity to corticosteroids or those with nasal ulcers or trauma
Contact a doctor immediately if you experience:
- Excessive nasal bleeding or symptoms of infection, such as excessive pain or discomfort, persistent headache, or increased sinus discharge
- Symptoms suggesting that the implant has moved, such as irritation or a choking sensation in the back of the throat
- Hypersensitivity reactions, including rashes, itching, and hives
Close monitoring is recommended for patients with a change of vision or a history of increased intraocular pressure, glaucoma, and/or cataracts.
