LATERA for Nasal Airway Obstruction in Suwanee, GA

What Is Nasal Airway Obstruction?

Nasal Airway Obstruction (NAO) is a condition in which the nasal passages are blocked and prevent a normal or comfortable amount of air from passing through the nose. NAO affects more than 20 million Americans and can occur because of a structural abnormality in the nose or because of inflammation and swelling of the nasal passages. With nasal breathing delivering approximately 70% of airflow to the lungs, any blockage that limits airflow can cause significant quality-of-life consequences.

Symptoms of NAO

  • 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

The LATERA Implant

 The LATERA absorbable nasal implant supports upper and lower lateral cartilage in your nose. It is placed inside the lateral (side) wall to support the cartilage, reducing nasal airway obstruction symptoms and helping you breathe better.

Most LATERA implant patients experienced the following improvements:

  • 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
