What are Nasal Polyps?

Nasal polyps are soft, painless, non-cancerous growths that are often caused by chronic inflammation of the lining of your nasal passages. Common complaints among men and women who have nasal polyps are that they feel pressure in their head or sinuses

What are the Symptoms of Nasal Polyps?

While nasal polyps don’t always cause symptoms, when they do, it’s a sign that you might need to start treatment. Some warning signs that you may have nasal polyps include:

  • Chronic runny nose
  • Persistent stuffy nose
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Facial pain or headache
  • Pain along with your upper teeth
  • Severe snoring

It's important for patients to pay attention to all of their symptoms and let our sinus specialists know about everything they feel to help them diagnose the severity.

A Non-Surgical Treatment for Nasal Polyps

SINUVA® (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant

Discover Sinuva Implant

SINUVA is a non-surgical treatment that shrinks nasal polyps and may be an alternative to surgery. SINUVA is for adults 18 years of age or older with nasal polyps who have had ethmoid sinus surgery.

Choosing SINUVA Sinus Implants

SINUVA may be appealing to nasal polyp sufferers who would prefer an in-office treatment instead of sinus surgery in an operating room. SINUVA is placed during an office visit and patients are usually able to resume normal activities with little to no recovery days needed.

SINUVA was clinically proven to1,2

·       Shrink nasal polyps at 90 days

·       Reduce symptoms of nasal obstruction and congestion

·       Improve patients altered sense of smell

The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical trials were bronchitis, upper respiratory or middle ear infection, headache, light-headedness, asthma and nose bleed.

SINUVA is not for people with hypersensitivity to corticosteroids or those with nasal ulcers or trauma. See more Important Safety Information below.

SINUVA Indication & Important Safety Information


SINUVA Sinus Implant is a prescription steroid-releasing implant indicated for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps in adult patients 18 years or older who have had ethmoid sinus surgery.


Who should not use SINUVA?

Do not use SINUVA if you are allergic to mometasone furoate or any of the ingredients of the implant.

What should I tell my doctor before receiving SINUVA?

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.

What are the possible side effects of SINUVA?

Serious side effects of SINUVA can include:

  • Local Nasal Adverse 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.
  • Weakened immune system that may increase your risk of infections. Avoid contact with people who have contagious diseases such as chickenpox or measles. Call your doctor right away if you have been near someone with chickenpox or measles.
  • Adrenal insufficiency is a condition in which the adrenal glands do not make enough steroid hormones and can cause tiredness, weakness, nausea and vomiting and low blood pressure. Talk to your doctor if steroid effects such as Cushing Syndrome and adrenal suppression appear.

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 adverse reactions 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.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
