VANCOUVER and ATLANTA (PRWEB) October 09, 2018
Ondine Biomedical, Inc., an innovative medical solutions company, today announced that they have officially launched their first medical device for the chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patient, SurgENTTM, throughout the United States. Ondine presented SurgENT over the weekend during the 64th Annual Meeting of the American Rhinologic Society (ARS) in Atlanta GA.
SurgENT provides a novel approach to sinus irrigation which allows the surgeon, whether in the office or operating room, to dislodge thick secretions and biofilms within the sinus cavities which traditional irrigation has difficulty accomplishing. Effective and thorough removal of sinus secretions diminishes inflammation and improves the quality of life of sinus sufferers. Chronic sinus disease affects millions of people every year and is a major health problem across the globe.
"The ARS meeting was the ideal event to showcase our SurgENT solution to ENT surgeons from across the globe. We are pleased with the encouraging feedback we have been receiving from surgeons and patients alike. “said Michelle Anschuetz, Chief Commercial Officer, Ondine Biomedical, Inc. “As we expand the availability of this innovative sinus irrigation device across the U.S., surgeons will now have an alternative to optimize outcomes for their sinus patients.”
