The LATERA Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in your nose.
It is placed inside the lateral (side) wall of the nose to support the cartilage, reducing nasal airway obstruction symptoms and helping patients breathe better. The implant material, which absorbs over a period of approximately 18 months, has an extensive history of use in a variety of medical applications.
LATERA may be a good treatment option if you are experiencing the following symptoms:
- Nasal congestion or stuffiness
- Nasal blockage or obstruction
- Trouble breathing through your nose
- Trouble sleeping
- Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion
