Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a stenting material called Nasopore. This is a synthetic material approved by FDA for use as a stent in postoperative sinus surgery patients. This study will compare the Nasopore stent to other approved stenting materials.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Sinusitis Drug: Merogel Nasal Stent and Nasopore Stent Drug: Nasopore Stent and either Gentamycin or Bacitracin Phase 4

Detailed Description:
This study will compare other sinus stenting products to the Nasopore stent. The stents will be soaked in antibiotic solutions and be observed for how well they perform. Subjects will have a stent placed in each sinus, stents may be the standard antibiotic saturated materials or the new nasopore material or nasopore stent soaked in antibiotics.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Merogel stent vs. Nasopore Stent
This study has two arms consiting of 50 subjects each (100 total) Arm 1 will recieve the standard stent (merogel)in their right sinus and a nasopore stent in their left sinus.
Drug: Merogel Nasal Stent and Nasopore Stent
Merogel Nasal Stent and Nasopore Stent
Other Names:
  • Merogel Stent
  • Nasopore Stent
  • Bacatracin soaked stent
  • Gentamicin soaked stent

Experimental: bacitracin vs. gentamicin treated stent
The second arm will consist of 50 new subjects. These 50 subjects will have a nasopore stent placed in the left sinus. The first 25 subjects will have nasopore stent placed postoperatively with a bacitracin soaked nasopore in right sinus the second 25 will have a gentamycin soaked nasopore stent in right sinus.
