AlaxoLito is an FDA registered medical device. AlaxoLito is used to treat decreased nasal breathing as well as resulting snoring. Causes can be a nasal alar collapse, nasal valve collapse or turbinate hyperplasia.
The product was developed together with ENT physician Dr. Peter Renner (Cologne Germany) and is specifically adapted for application in the nasal cavity. The smooth stent braid is made from memory metal nitinol. It has a ball-shaped widening which is positioned at the nasal valve and a cylindrical longer section which splints the turbinates.
