Congratulations to Stacey Silvers, MD, Jon Rosenthal, DO, Chad McDuffie, MD, David Yen, MD, and Joseph Han, MD. This team was recognized by the American Rhinologic Society for their clinical research on VivAer® radiofrequency treatment of nasal obstruction.
The findings of the randomized controlled trial demonstrated significant symptom relief for patients with nasal airway obstruction caused by nasal valve collapse following treatment with the VivAer Stylus. This is the first randomized controlled trial to compare a minimally invasive radiofrequency treatment of nasal valve collapse to a sham control.
