About Entellus Medical, Inc.
Entellus Medical is a medical technology company focused on the design, development and commercialization of products for the minimally invasive treatment of chronic and recurrent sinusitis patients in the physician office setting or operating room. Its XprESS family of products is used by ENT physicians to open narrowed or obstructed sinus drainage pathways using balloon sinus dilation. When used as a stand-alone therapy, Entellus Medical's balloon sinus dilation products are proven in a sufficiently powered prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial to be as effective as functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS. Patients treated with Entellus Medical's products in this trial in the ENT physician office also experienced faster recovery outcomes and fewer post-procedure debridements than patients receiving FESS. Entellus Medical currently markets its products in the United States and Canada and sells its products through a direct sales force in the United States.
