Entellus Medical (Plymouth, MN) is releasing its new XprESS LoProfile Multi-Sinus Dilation Tool. The new device features a narrower profile for easier and safer passage through the sinuses, allowing more patients to benefit from sinus dilation. From the announcement:
XprESS LoProfile’s small atraumatic ball tip allows for gentle palpation of tight sinus passages and is also quickly shapeable for treatment of the frontal, sphenoid and maxillary sinuses. XprESS LoProfile with Light Fiber combines balloon sinus dilation, seeker, tip location confirmation, suction, and irrigation functions into a single less invasive tool designed for effective clinical outcomes in sinus dilation procedures.
“The reduced size of the XprESS LoProfile device makes it ideal for reliably accessing and treating the frontal and maxillary sinuses in a doctor’s office. The doctor can quickly customize the device shape to fit a patient’s anatomy, allowing the device to quickly open narrowed sinus drainage paths,” said Brian Farley, CEO of Entellus Medical. “Physicians with all levels of experience have used the XprESS LoProfile device to effectively treat sinusitis patients in well-tolerated office procedures and in conjunction with traditional endoscopic sinus surgery.”
