Balloon Sinuplasty: Now Standard of Care
Patients experience less pain than with traditional sinus surgery and return to normal activity more quickly.
Studies have proven Balloon Sinus Dilation provides long-term relief from sinus symptoms by opening blocked sinus passageways for 94% of patients. This means that, on average, about 6 patients in 100 will need another procedure. The next procedure could either be another balloon sinus dilation or a traditional sinus surgery.
In 2013 a national multi-center study, known as REMODEL, demonstrated Balloon Sinus Dilation is as effective as conventional sinus surgery at improving chronic sinusitis symptoms long term, but with less down time, less post-operative pain and a faster return to normal activities.
Sinusitis: Inflammation, Swelling and Discomfort
Sinusitis is the inflammation and/or swelling of the sinus-lining tissue, with or without infection. Infection results in one of the following types of sinusitis: acute sinusitis, subacute sinusitis, chronic sinusitis, or recurrent sinusitis. When the sinus cavities swell, normal sinus function becomes impaired, which can lead to blockage of the airways.
