Latera Nose Implant for Nasal Obstruction

A NEW Treatment For Nasal Obstruction

How does LATERA® Work?

The LATERA® Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in the nose, reinforcing the nasal wall like traditional cartilage and polymer grafts. Supporting the cartilage in this manner may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help patients breathe better.

LATERA® is an absorbable nasal implant used to support the upper and lower cartilage inside the lateral (side) wall of your nose. Supporting the cartilage may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help you breathe better.  The implant is placed inside the nasal wall by an Dr. Michael Bublik.

How is LATERA® Absorbed?

The LATERA® implant is absorbed over a period of ~18 months. Post implantation, a fibrous capsule forms and the integrity of the implant is maintained through 12 months. Tissue encapsulation promotes acute implant stability and enables localized tissue response during the absorption process. Remodeling occurs once the implant is replaced with fibrous collagen construct to provide ongoing support.

This process helps patients with nasal obstruction by supporting nasal cartilage. An absorbable implant is injected into position. The clear implant provides on going nasal support, preventing nasal collapse and delivering immediate relief.
