Executive Summary

Sinuses are the hollow cavities located in the bones of the face and around the nose. There are four sinus cavities: frontal, maxillary, ethmoid, and sphenoid, each with different features. Under normal conditions, the secretion (mucous) flow through the nasal passages, but with the onset of sinusitis, the secretion gets blocked in the sinuses due to inflammation. Sinusitis disturbs the normal lifestyle of a person and sometimes become frustrating, as it affects the person’s breathing, sleeping and eating.

Sinusitis can be divided into Acute Sinusitis, Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis (RARS) and chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS), on the basis of the duration of the episode of sinusitis and its severity. The treatment options for the sinusitis can be over-the-counter treatment, medical management and surgery. The OTC treatment includes decongestants, antihistamines, pain relievers and nasal irrigation. Medical management includes antibiotics and oral and nasal steroids. The sinus surgeries are mainly of two types: Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) and Balloon Sinus Dilation (BSD).

Intersect, is the only company that has developed drug releasing bio-absorbable implants (drug eluting sinus stents- DESS) that enable targeted and sustained release of therapeutic agents, increasing the effectiveness of the sinus surgery.

The US DESS market is expected to increase at a significant growth rate during the forecasted period (2016-2021). The US DESS market is supported by various growth drivers, such as limitations of FESS treatment, benefits of DESS, increasing per capita healthcare expenditure, cost effectiveness of DESS, etc. Yet, the market faces certain challenges, such as, reimbursement issues, dependability on individual physician’s experience, limited trials after BSD, etc.
