Breathe New Life Into Your Nasal Obstruction Cases.

Non-Invasive Nasal Airway Remodeling with VIVAER®
Patients suffering from nasal airway obstruction continue to look for a better solution—a solution that does not require invasive surgery or permanent implants, have a long recovery period, or lacks efficacy.
With VIVAER you can offer your patients the ability to breathe better and live better. VIVAER utilizes proprietary low-temperature, non-ablative energy to effectively reshape the nasal airway to improve airflow, without any incisions.

Non-Invasive Low-temperature RF with proprietary treatment algorithms delivers controlled energy to target areas and effectively reshapes the nasal airway without destroying the tissue.
In-Office Simple, in-office procedure integrates easily in the practice with minimal disruption of workflow.
Clinically Proven Results Clinical studies have shown significant improvements in nasal airflow, NOSE scores (Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation), and quality of life, similar to surgical intervention and outcomes.

Go Beyond Traditional Treatment Options.

Help More of Your Patients Breathe Easy.
The VIVAER procedure fills a significant treatment gap for a very large group of patients already under your care in your practice and allows you to help them finally breathe freely.

  • An estimated 4 million patients already under the care of otolaryngologists could benefit from this procedure
  • Every year, approximately 600,000 new cases are diagnosed in the US alone

Patients are highly interested in the procedure.
In recent surveys conducted with patients suffering from severe or extreme nasal obstruction symptoms:

Proprietary Energy. Remodeled Airways.

RF Remodeling with Proprietary Treatment Algorithms
The Aerin Medical RF Remodeling platform delivers non-ablative radiofrequency energy using proprietary control algorithms to treat soft tissues in the nasal airway. The smart console instantly sets treatment parameters when the VIVAER Airway Remodeling stylus is inserted. The VIVAER stylus is then used to gently shrink submucosal nasal tissues, including cartilage that obstruct the nasal airway.

VIVAER Treatment Platform

Low-temperature. Non-Ablative. Controlled.

 

 

Small Changes Make Large Improvements to Nasal Breathing
The nasal valve area, the most common site of nasal obstruction, accounts for over two thirds of total nasal resistance. Changes to the valve area result in large improvements to airflow and nasal breathing.

  • No Incisions – The procedure requires no incisions and is performed by simply treating at the surface of the desired area
  • No exterior change – Gently heats and shrinks submucosal tissue, including cartilage, to relieve nasal obstruction without impacting exterior appearance of the nose

The Evidence is Clear. And So are the Results.

Clinical Studies Demonstrate Surgery-like Results1
A prospective, multi-center, non-randomized US Pivotal Study to evaluate the treatment of nasal airway obstruction using the VIVAER System demonstrated outstanding patient outcomes.

Long Term European Experience
VIVAER patients continued to maintain their reduction in nasal obstruction symptoms when followed up to 22 months post treatment (EU data on file).

      

Inside Your Office. Beyond Expectations.

Now, you can address a patient population – many of whom are already in your own practice – with an option that is non-invasive, immediate recovery, and shows significant improvements in nasal breathing.

Simple, In-office Treatment:
• Treatment designed and optimized for the office environment
• Requires only local anesthetic, with minimal patient discomfort
• Direct visualization of treatment locations – no endoscope necessary
• Patients can immediately return to normal activities

Fast, Straightforward Procedure
