Renew Your Sinus Health
Balloon Sinuplasty (or balloon sinus dilation) was introduced in 2005 as a convenient, less invasive alternative to sinus surgery. The procedure uses a small balloon to dilate and remodel your sinus opening to allow your sinuses to drain and ventilate more effectively.
Convenient In-Office Sinus Procedure
The Balloon Sinuplasty procedure is performed in the comfort of a physician's office. A tiny catheter is inserted through the nose and into the opening of the sinuses. On the end of the catheter is a balloon. Once inside the sinus opening, the balloon is dilated (or inflated). By dilating the balloon, the sinus opening is remodeled by up to six times in size, allowing for proper drainage and ventilation. The balloon is then deflated and removed. That’s it!
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 the operating room.
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.
