Medtronic offers additional products for sinus surgery, such as our powered ENT instruments, blades, burs, and powered sinus irrigation.
Medtronic’s innovative powered ENT instruments for sinus surgery facilitate speed, precision, and surgical access in minimally invasive procedures. In fact, we developed and patented the first powered sinus debrider in 1997.
Our broad selection of powered ENT instruments provides exceptional versatility, such as our Integrated Power Console (IPC® System), Straightshot® M4 Microdebrider, and Inferior Turbinate Blades.
Medtronic's Fusion® ENT Navigation System is the first and only electromagnetic image guidance system for ENT surgeries that provides the high-level accuracy of an optical system, works with reusable standard instruments, and enables customized surgeon settings.
Our Fusion System helps you make quick, data-driven decisions during ENT surgeries and is supported by a large, dedicated ENT sales and specialized ENT clinical support staff.
Bacteria are increasingly linked to recurring chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).1,2 Yet 99.9% of all bacteria can’t be cultured in a lab.3
The award-winning Hydrodebrider® Endoscopic Irrigator removes bacteria directly from the sinuses with a rotating spray of pressurized saline. It can be used during endoscopic sinus surgery or in the office.
