MENLO PARK, CA -- Intersect ENT®, Inc. (Nasdaq: XENT), a global ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) medical technology leader dedicated to transforming patient care, today announced the U.S. availability of the new Straight Delivery System (“SDS”) packaged with the company’s PROPEL® Mini (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant.

West, President and CEO of Intersect ENT. “We are dedicated to responding to our customers’ feedback and providing them with the best combination of products to advance care for chronic sinusitis patients in various centers of care.”
“The combination of the PROPEL Mini and the Straight Delivery System in one package is reflective of Intersect ENT’s ongoing commitment to supporting the ENT community,” states Roheen Raithatha, MD, practicing Rhinologist at ENT and Allergy Associates and faculty member at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York. “I look forward to utilizing this newly bundled implant and delivery system during my FESS procedures.”
