Dalent Medical was launched in 2017 by ENT surgeon Dr. Agustin Arrieta and engineer Peter Flores who saw the opportunity to develop an innovative, versatile and lower cost instrument to help surgeons treat patients with chronic sinusitis.

Dalent Medical is a U.S. Medical Device company that designs, manufactures, and markets cutting edge surgical products for Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Surgeons that are easy to use, low cost, and more versatile when performing Sinus Surgery and Balloon Sinus Dilation (BSD) procedures. Dalent’s mission is committed to creating better solutions for physicians to help restore health and well-being to patients living with sinus-related conditions

The Sinusleeve® Balloon is the world’s first balloon sinus dilation sleeve in the ENT field that offers a unique, universal design that provides surgeons the ability to use the same device on multiple sinuses and to use existing suction instruments and other rigid instruments to access the frontal, maxillary and sphenoid sinuses. The ability to use one device such as the Sinusleeve® balloon with a wide array of surgeon-familiar instruments, while also increasing functionality at a lower cost, is a true breakthrough for ENT doctors and their patients.

Dalent Medical's well-rounded management team is led by Anthony Carnemolla, who brings 27 years of medical device and sales management experience to the company. Previously, he held key VP positions at Marena Group, AirXpanders and Invuity directly responsible for international and domestic sales of medical devices and equipment.

"Dalent Medical is an innovative start-up focused on creating and bringing to market better, simpler, and more efficient therapeutic solutions for surgeons to treat chronic sinus related conditions.  Early sales efforts and response in our home state of Florida for the Sinusleeve® Balloon have been overwhelmingly positive.  Using this momentum, I am excited to lead the charge to get the Sinusleeve® Balloon adopted by surgeons in major markets across the US," said CCO Anthony Carnemolla. 

Dr. Agustin "Gus" Arrieta, an Ear, Nose & Throat MD,  has spent the last 15 years as a surgeon in South Florida, treating patients with Chronic Sinusitis. He serves as Chief Medical Officer. Peter Flores, a biotech engineer and experienced entrepreneur, completes the c-suite in the role of CTO. An advisory board of 10 ENT and primary care doctors lend their expertise and provide additional guidance to Dalent Medical.

"In my practice, I began to notice that improvements in my tool set can have a direct impact on the quality of care. Fortunately, I joined forces with a skilled team to develop new devices that enable my colleagues to provide their patients with life-changing procedures and reduce costs," said CMO Dr. Agustin Arrieta

Members of our medical advisory board were carefully chosen for their expertise in Balloon Sinuplasty and other ENT-related procedures. As we continue to develop new products and refine our current ones, we will rely on these doctors to provide feedback and keep us on the right path. With their help, our goal is to bring more useful devices to market in the near future

The balloon sinus dilation sleeve will be used by ENT's in procedures that treat Chronic Sinusitis, a condition which affects up to 30 million people in the United States. The amount of surgeries to treat this condition continues to rise as less invasive techniques offer improved patient experience, measurable quality of life improvements, and lower healthcare costs.
