LATERA® Implants for Nasal Obstruction and Nasal Valve Collapse

About Nasal Obstruction and Nasal Valve Collapse

Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Nasal congestion or stuffiness
  • Nasal blockage or obstruction
  • Trouble breathing through your nose
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion

If So, you may be one of more than 20 million Americans suffering from nasal obstruction, which restricts airflow through the nose and negatively impacts one's quality of life.

One of the most common causes of nasal obstruction is nasal valve collapse (NVC), which occurs as a result of weak lateral cartilage collapsing inward when a person inhales. NVC is as prevalent as septal deviation and turbinate hypertrophy among nasal and sinus patients.

Clinical research shows LATERA patients experience:

  • Nasal congestion or stuffiness
  • Nasal blockage or obstruction
  • Trouble breathing through your nose
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion

LATERA® Implant

 

A New Option

We are now offering a new option called LATERA®, an absorbable nasal implant that provides support to the collapsing lateral nasal cartilage. LATERA may help you breathe better by reducing your nasal obstruction symptoms. It is inserted through a small incision in the nose.

Patients reported improved breathing through their nose and little risk of changes to appearance. The majority of patients implanted with LATERA were satisfied with their breathing (86%) and appearance (93%) results.
