OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate an instrument that allows a drug-eluting catheter to be inserted into the ethmoid sinuses and to demonstrate its safety and reproducibility in a cadaver model. METHODS A drug-eluting catheter was placed into 12 cadaveric anterior and posterior ethmoid sinuses by use of a trocar-based insertion device. The device's position was analyzed with computed tomographic scans, and postprocedural dissection was performed. RESULTS The drug-eluting catheter system was… CONTINUE READING
