Nasal Polyps Treatments in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Nasal polyps are common painless growths in the lining of the nose that can block nasal passages, leading to difficulties breathing, sleeping and smelling. Up to 12 million people suffer from nasal polyps and although the cause is unknown, nasal polyps are usually associated with allergies, infection and immune disorders. Instead of countless sinus surgeries to remove nasal polyps when it recurs, there is a new, efficient way to get rid of nasal polyps in a simple few minutes.
What is PolypVac?
PolypVac is a safe and new technology that has been FDA approved for removing nasal polyps. This minimally invasive procedure can be conducted during a routine visit to Dr. Lapco’s office or a scheduled appointment, without the need of general anesthesia. After the removal of nasal polyps, PolypVac provides a larger pathway for medicated sprays and rinses that minimizes polyp recurrence.
How does PolypVac work?
PolypVac is a high-powered vacuum allowing Dr. Lapco to suck out nasal polyps that obstruct breathing capabilities. Dr. Lapco will spray anesthetic or decongestant to open the passages to make the procedure more comfortable. The PolypVac is inserted in the nose and the nasal polyps are sucked out of the pathways, in a generally painless removal. Dr. Lapco uses an endoscope camera to see the polyps during removal, so he ensures all of them are gone for good.
This procedure is often completed within just a few minutes. Once it is finished, the patient can be on their way with no recovery or downtime.
