ClariFix® Cryotherapy
Over 24 million Americans suffer from chronic rhinitis aka runny nose and its frustrating symptoms, such as the feeling of always having a cold, the constant need for tissues, the frequent urge to clear their throat and interrupted sleep.
Traditional medical treatments such as nasal sprays, drops and pills can help manage chronic rhinitis symptoms for some patients but often does not address the underlying problem and may have side effects. The issue is the inflamed nasal lining and underlying out-of-balance nerves that are causing your symptoms. This results in too many signals telling the nose to drip, run and swell more than necessary. These nerves may be stimulated by allergen or irritants in the air, weather changes, medications, eating or chronic health conditions. Using minimally invasive Cold treatment called ‘cryotherapy’, the ClariFix® device goes to the root of the problem.
ClariFix® is a quick office-based procedure for the application of cryotherapy to nerves that control the rate of mucus production in the nose. The Doctor will anesthetize the patient’s nose in the office procedure room and apply the treatment to each side. After anesthesia, the treatment takes about two minutes. Because no IV sedation or general anesthesia is required most patients return to normal activities the next day. A clinical study demonstrated the following after patients were treated with the ClariFix® cryotherapy.
• A significant decrease in runny nose and congestion symptoms
• 4 out of 5 patients reporting long-lasting relief
• Similar improvement in both allergic and non-allergic runny nose patients
• No device or procedure related serious adverse events.
“I tried everything under the sun to get my nose to stop running. I had to have tissues everywhere I went. It was so frustrating and embarrassing. So when Dr. Latorre mentioned he has a new treatment option, I was anxious to try it, I can’t believe how much better it is. My nose felt like a waterfall before, and Dr. Latorre turned it off with ClariFix” -Rebecca S.
The Latorre Sinus Center continually strives to offer patients the most effective minimally invasive treatment options. ClariFix® cryotherapy is a proven treatment option that can be performed in office with minimal downtime.
