Treating Nasal Valve Collapse

Are You Suffering from Nasal Airway Obstruction?

Over 20 million Americans suffer from nasal airway obstruction (NAO).

Nasal airway obstruction is a condition which limits airflow through the nose, making breathing difficult and uncomfortable. This can significantly impact the quality of life of NAO sufferers.

Sophisticated Nasal Obstruction Treatment

If you are suffering with nasal valve collapse, we are extremely proud to offer the safe, effective, clinically-proven comfort and convenience of the LATERA™ absorbable nasal implant. The LATERA™ implant is a minimally-invasive option for supporting upper and lower lateral wall cartilage in your nose.

Nasal Airway Obstruction Symptoms

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty achieving a full night’s sleep or poor quality sleep
  • Reduced productivity

Diagnosing Nasal Valve Collapse

The skilled team of sinus and sleep care professionals at Sleep and Sinus Centers can determine if collapse of the lateral nasal wall is causing nasal airway obstruction. Supporting the lateral wall can greatly benefit patients with weak lateral cartilage. The LATERA™ absorbable nasal implant can provide long-lasting relief from nasal valve collapse.

Safe, Effective Support for Nasal Valve Collapse

Breathe easy with the added support provided by the LATERA™ absorbable nasal implant. LATERA™ utilizes state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive technology to provide support for the upper and lower lateral cartilage in the nose. This added support can reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and allow patients to breathe more easily. Following the procedure, the implant is easily absorbed over a period of approximately 18 months, and no follow-up removal procedure is required.

Clinically-Proven Patient Success

Patients with lateral wall or nasal valve collapse enjoy significant, meaningful improvement in the following areas after treatment with LATERA™:

  • Reduced nasal congestion or stuffiness
  • Less difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Improved airflow through the nose during exercise or physical activity
  • Reduced nasal blockage or obstruction
  • Longer, more restful, quality sleep

Some risks are associated with the LATERA™ absorbable implant, such as:

  • Inflammation or mild bruising
