Sinuva Q&A

What is SINUVA? 

SINUVA is a sinus implant used to non-surgically treat nasal polyps. During this in-office procedure, your provider will apply a topical or local anesthesia to numb the nose and sinuses and minimize discomfort. SINUVA is then inserted into the sinus cavity through the nasal opening.  

SINUVA works by providing a 2-in-1 approach: to open the sinus cavity and release anti-inflammatory medication for up to 90 days to target and treat the nasal polyps. 


How can I benefit from SINUVA? 

SINUVA can significantly reduce nasal obstruction and congestion. It can also help improve an impaired sense of smell. 

The most common adverse reactions and side-effects include: bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headaches, asthma, and nose bleeds. 

SINUVA is intended for adults with nasal polyps who have had ethmoid sinus surgery and are looking for other alternatives.
