Latera Latani24 Absorbable Nasal Implant 24mm x 1mm-2 Implants in Box

Part # Latani24              Exp  10/19

The Latera Latani24 Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in the nose, reinforcing the nasal wall like traditional cartilage and polymer grafts.

Supporting the cartilage in this manner may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help patients breathe better.

The LATERA implant supports the upper and lower lateral cartilage by anchoring above the maxilla to provide cantilever support.

Forked tip: for anchoring the implant in place

Absorbable nasal implant: absorbable PLLA polymer with long history of use in various medical applications

Ball Tip: designed to be atraumatic

The LATERA implant is absorbed over a period of about 18 months. Post implantation, a fibrous capsule forms and the integrity of the implant is maintained through 12 months. Tissue encapsulation promotes acute implant stability and enables localized tissue response during the absorption process. Remodeling occurs once the implant is replaced with fibrous collagen construct to provide ongoing support.

Implantation: Implant integrity maintained while fibrous capsule forms.


Tissue encapsulation promotes acute implant stability. Safety profile shows minimal inflammatory response and expected surrounding tissue reaction.


Capsule and fibrotic tissue remains as implant degrades and is absorbed. Collagen construct replaces implant at 24 months.

In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.

Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product.  The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years.  The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.

There is a $125 minimum order due to the cost of shipping.  You can add items from different specialties it just needs to be $125 or more in order to complete the transaction.
