What Is Nasal Airway Obstruction?
Are you experiencing the following symptoms?
- Difficulty breathing at rest and/or while exercising
- Nasal blockage or obstruction
- Trouble breathing through your nose
- Trouble sleeping • Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion
Nasal breathing delivers approximately 70% of airflow to the lungs. More than 20 million Americans are estimated to suffer from nasal airway obstruction (NAO), which limits airflow through the nose with significant quality of life consequences.
How does LATERA Work?
The LATERA Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in the nose, reinforcing the nasal wall like traditional cartilage and polymer grafts. Supporting the cartilage in this manner may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help patients breathe better. The technology is intuitive to understand, and is delivered inside the nasal wall by your surgeon Dr. David Seidman.
What Have Patients Experienced with the LATERA Implant?
LATERA showed significant quality of life improvement for nasal obstruction patients with lateral wall or nasal valve collapse, as measured by the NOSE survey.9,10 While individual results may vary, LATERA patients saw the following improvements:
- Reduced nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Less trouble breathing through the nose
- Improved ability to get enough air through the nose during exercise or exertion
- Reduced nasal blockage or obstruction
- Less trouble sleeping
Patients experienced a reduction in nasal obstruction symptoms of 53.1% at one year, as measured by the NOSE survey.10. Patients got these results without negative cosmetic effects. Risks included temporary symptoms such as:
- Mild bruising and Inflammation
- Awareness of the implant
- Mild pain or Irritation
Other risk related to the Cosmetic Nasal Surgery implant included: discomfort, infection, reaction to material, and device retrieval
