the SINUVA Way.
Hear from patients about SINUVA
“Since I first got SINUVA implanted I’m able to smell more, I can pick out my perfume, I can cook and actually discern different flavor profiles, which is exciting to me.
“Instead of taking oral steroids, the medication was put where the problem was. The congestion started to dissipate and I was able to breathe through my nose which was very hard to do prior to that.
“I did it right at my doctor’s office, it took less than an hour to do. I did feel pressure but other than that I was back up and back to work in a couple days. In fact, my appointment was on a Friday and I was back to work by Monday.
“When I left his office and I went home, I really started feeling good and as time went on it’s been better and better and better ... I had no postnasal drip after the implant. I was breathing through my sinuses all day and I just feel good.
Are you still living with nasal polyps? Consider an alternative to another sinus surgery — SINUVA is a nonsurgical treatment option that can be placed in office. SINUVA delivers anti-inflammatory medicine directly to the nasal polyps, providing up to 90 days of continuous relief. Once it’s in place, it usually can’t be felt—and you don’t need to remember to take SINUVA daily. SINUVA is designed to stay in your ethmoid sinus until your doctor removes it 90 days after placement or sooner.

SINUVA Sinus Implant is a prescription steroid-releasing (mometasone furoate) implant indicated for the treatment of nasal polyps in patients 18 years or older who have had ethmoid sinus surgery.
Do not use SINUVA if you are allergic to mometasone furoate or any ingredients of the implant.
Before you receive SINUVA, tell your doctor about all medical conditions you have including nasal/sinus problems (such as nasal ulcers or trauma), eye problems (such as glaucoma or cataracts), or any untreated fungal, bacterial, or viral infections.
Local reactions including nosebleed and injury to nerves or blood vessels in the nose/sinus.
Serious allergic reactions have happened in patients using mometasone furoate including rash, itching or swelling of the lips, face, tongue, and throat, and breathing problems. Call your doctor right away if you have any of these reactions.

The most common side effects of SINUVA in clinical studies were bronchitis, cold symptoms, middle ear infections, headache, lightheadedness or dizziness, asthma, and nosebleeds. The following side effects have been identified during post-approval use of the SINUVA sinus implant. These events include implant migration, lack of efficacy, nasal pain, headache, and nosebleeds.
Tell your doctor if you have any side effects that bother you or don’t go away.
Risks related with the insertion and removal of SINUVA are similar to other endoscopic sinus procedures.
SINUVA is made from materials designed to soften over time and may fall out of the nose on its
own as polyps decrease or if you sneeze or blow your nose forcefully. The implant will be removed 90 days after placement or earlier at your doctor’s discretion.
Contact your doctor immediately if you have any changes in vision, excessive nasal bleeding, symptoms of infection or symptoms suggesting that the implant has moved, such as irritation or a choking sensation in the back of the throat.
