Strengthen your sinus surgery action plan with the
PROPEL™ family of implants

PROPEL™ sinus implants feature an innovative 2-in-1 mechanism that maintains the surgical opening following sinus surgery while delivering mometasone furoate, a potent corticosteroid, directly to the sinus mucosa where it is needed1-3.

OPEN in the sinus cavity
  • Self-expanding design that opens in and supports the sinus cavity1
  • Non-obstructive design allows for nasal clearance and the delivery of topical rinses1
  • Dissolvable frame over approximately 30-45 days after placement as the sinus cavity heals5
DELIVERS Mometasone furoate (MF) locally
  • Delivers 370µg of MF over 30 days
  • MF present in the mucosal tissue for up to 60 days4 (based on pre-clinical data)

Mometasone furoate delivers a combination of potency and safety

Mometasone furoate was selected for use in PROPEL implant for its sinonasal drug characteristics7:

droplet graphicHighly lipophilic - Readily absorbs into tissue

target graphicTargeted + potent - High glucocorticoid receptor affinity

medical icon graphicLow systemic bioavailability - Minimizes systemic effects

Drug characteristics comparison chart

* Lipophilicity numbers normalized relative to triamcinolone acetonide.
† As measured by relative receptor binding affinity compared to dexamethasone, which is set to a value of 100. Higher values designate greater potency.
‡ As measured by plasma concentration of drug from intranasal vs intravenous route.

PROPEL™ Important Safety Information:
The PROPEL™ sinus implants are intended to maintain patency and locally deliver steroid to the sinus mucosa in patients ≥18 years of age following sinus surgery: PROPEL™ for the ethmoid sinus, PROPEL™ Mini for the ethmoid sinus/frontal sinus opening, and PROPEL™ Contour for the frontal sinus ostia in chronic rhinosinusitis patients. Contraindications include patients with intolerance to mometasone furoate (MF) or hypersensitivity to bioabsorbable polymers. Safety and effectiveness of the implant in pregnant or nursing females have not been studied. Risks may include, but are not limited to, pain/pressure, displacement of the implant, possible side effects of intranasal MF, sinusitis, epistaxis, and infection. For full prescribing information see IFU at For use by healthcare professionals only.
