Steroid-eluting sinus stents may be used in addition to endoscopic sinus surgery. They are, however, of unclear benefit as of 2015.[1]

One version releases mometasone furoate. It is a bioabsorbable steroid-eluting stent. It delivers steroids over a 30-day period prior to dissolving.[2]

Society and culture

A number of brands exist including Relieva Stratus Spacer and Propel sinus implant.[3][4]


One brand received pre-market approval from the FDA in 2011.
