LATERA Nasal Implant

The LATERA Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in your nose. Supporting the cartilage in this manner may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help patients breathe better. The LATERA implant is made of a material that absorbs over a period of approximately 18 months, and is placed inside the nasal wall in a less invasive way.

What Have Patients Experienced with the LATERA Implant?

LATERA showed significant quality of life improvement for nasal obstruction patients with lateral wall or nasal valve collapse, as measured by the NOSE survey. While individual results may vary, LATERA patients saw the following improvements in:

  • Reduced nasal congestion or stuffiness
  • Less trouble breathing through the nose
  • Improved ability to get enough air through the nose during exercise or exertion
  • Reduced nasal blockage or obstruction
  • Less trouble sleeping

Patients experienced a reduction in nasal obstruction symptoms of 53.1% at one year, as measured by the NOSE survey. These results were achieved without negative cosmetic effects.

Risks included temporary symptoms such as:

  • Mild bruising and inflammation
  • Awareness of the implant
  • Mild pain or irritation

Other risks related to the LATERA implant included: discomfort, infection, reaction to material, and device retrieval.
