FAQ

+ What is SphenoCath®?

A new patented device and method for achieving an SPG block (sphenopalatine ganglion block), the SphenoCath® device and procedure provides most patients with immediate relief of headache pain with a simple, gentle, comfortable in-office procedure.

+ How is SphenoCath® different?

The SphenoCath® device is a one-of-a-kind patented, soft, flexible, catheter through which a medical professional can deliver medication through the nasal passages to several difficult-to-reach ganglia (a group of nerve cells) in the face and head without needles, sprays, swabs or sedation for maximum patient comfort. This device allows a low risk, simple procedure that is a pain management game-changer for anyone who experiences four or more severe headaches a year.

+ Is SphenoCath® right for me?

SphenoCath®offers:

  • Quick, simple and comfortable in-office procedure
  • Higher success rates - immediate relief in majority of patients
  • Low risk procedure
  • Safe for adults, children and pregnant women
  • Low cost - (covered by most insurance companies)

+ Is SpenoCath® safe?

SPG (sphenopalatine ganglion block) block procedures have been done for many years but, until the invention of the patented SpenoCath®, the procedure has been difficult, uncomfortable and offered only by a few practitioners. Now SPG blocks can be done quickly, easily and comfortably, and by a wide variety of practitioners.

+ What are the benefits of a SpenoCath® procedure?

SphenoCath® procedures provide prompt and often sustained relief of pain associated with headaches, facial pain, dental pain and neuralgia including conditions such as:

  • Migraines
  • V1 Frontal Lobe Headaches
  • TMJ
  • Occipital Neuralgia
  • Post Concussion Headaches
  • Cluster Headaches
  • Ice Pick Headaches

+ Why will an SPG block help me?

The sphenopalatine ganglion is a collection of nerve cells located just under the tissue lining the back of the nose. By applying a local anesthetic to the area, nerve impulses can be temporarily blocked, providing relief from various types of pain. SphenoCath® is designed to quickly and comfortably deliver medication to the area of the sphenopalatine ganglion.

+ How long will it take?

SPG block using theSphenoCath®takes 2-3 minutes. Patients are encouraged to remain in a flat or reclined position for 10-15 minutes afterwards to maximize the benefit of the procedure.

+ What are the side effects or risks with the SphenoCath®?

The risks of using the SphenoCath® include irritation to nasal cavity or mucosa, nose bleeding; and/or mild pain.
