Latera® Nasal Implant
More than 20 million Americans suffer from nasal airway obstruction, which can cause:
- Difficulty breathing at rest and/or while exercising
- Reduced sleep time or sleep quality
- Reduced daytime productivity
If nasal airway obstruction is hampering your breathing, we may have just the answer for you with this simple, absorbable implant.
Latera® is a tiny nasal implant designed to support the cartilage of the nasal wall to help open airways of the nose. ENT surgeons typically use it to correct a collapsed nasal airway.
It's absorbable, meaning that after it is has been placed inside the nasal wall during a minimally invasive surgical procedure it stays in place for about 18 months and then is naturally absorbed into the body, so no surgical removal is needed.
