Discover the Non‑Invasive Procedure for Nasal Obstruction

Deliver Lasting Relief from Nasal Airway Obstruction with VivAer®

Many of the millions of patients suffering from nasal airway obstruction (NAO), are frustrated by their quality of life and would welcome a way to find proven, long-lasting relief from their condition.

Small Changes, Big Improvements

The nasal valve is the narrowest area of the nasal airway and the most common site of NAO, accounting for two-thirds of nasal resistance. But as Poiseuille’s Law states, airflow is proportional to the 4th power of the change in radius, so small changes can deliver exponential improvements in nasal breathing.

The Nasal Airway Obstruction Solution Your Patients Need

VivAer is an office-friendly, incisionless, non-invasive procedure that offers patients freedom from NAO. Compact and portable, the Aerin® Console and VivAer Stylus fit seamlessly into any clinic, office, or hospital environment. VivAer is a convenient and efficient treatment option to integrate into your practice.

Who Benefits Most from the VivAer Treatment?

  • Patients with static or dynamic nasal valve collapse
  • Patients seeking a low-risk, effective, in-office treatment option
  • Post-surgical patients who still have difficulty breathing
  • Candidates for traditional surgery (e.g., septum, turbinates) who could benefit from an adjunct procedure addressing the nasal valve in the same setting
  • Patients with moderate to severe NAO as measured by the NOSE score and/or who experience improvement with the modified Cottle maneuver

A Powerful Approach to Nasal Airway Obstruction

The low profile VivAer Stylus employs transmucosal, temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) technology, optimized for the nasal airway. Once the stylus is inserted into the nose, the Aerin System automatically maintains the tip’s target temperature for therapeutic benefit while sparing surrounding tissue, including mucosa.

VivAer enables you to effectively tackle many of the core causes of nasal airway obstruction with one treatment:

  • Durably remodels nasal cartilage and soft tissue
  • Single solution that treats the entire nasal valve, including lateral wall, inferior turbinate, and septal swell body:
    • Increases nasal valve radius to improve airflow
    • Shrinks submucosal tissue of the inferior turbinate
    • Reduces soft tissue obstruction on the septum

Delivers Lasting Results

VivAer is clinically demonstrated to deliver high patient satisfaction with durable relief out to two years, according to a recent clinical study. The numbers tell the story of why patients love the results. VivAer delivered statistically significant improvements, as measured by the validated NOSE Scale Survey in a prospective, multicenter clinical study:2

  • 89% of patients reported improved sleep quality
  • 94% of patients reported improved ability to breathe through their nose during exercise or exertion
  • 67% of patients reported a reduction in NOSE scores
  • Continuing relief at the two-year clinical study follow-up mark

In a recent study with the Aerin Console, there was no aerosol generation above background levels, thereby enhancing safety for physicians and staff.3
