  Balloon Sinuplasty

Since its introduction in 2005, Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology has emerged as a new complement to existing approaches.

Balloon Sinuplasty™ has been utilized in over 126,000 patients and 336,000 sinuses. Each day approximately 200 sinus surgeries are performed with this technology. The technology has had a significant impact on the treatment of chronic sinusitis, leading to positive outcomes in patients’ lives to widen sinus ostia during the treatment of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinuplasty™ has been shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of sinus disease. Ultimately Balloon Sinuplasty™ may allow for significant patient symptom relief combined with rapid return-to-work.

Introduction
Balloon Sinuplasty is a novel, endoscopic, catheter-based technology utilized in sinus surgery that you can discuss with your doctor. This FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.


TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW
Balloon Sinuplasty technology is used by qualified ENT physicians and involves the use of small balloons to open blocked sinuses; this approach is similar to the usage of balloons to open blocked arteries in modern angioplasty. In the diagram on the right, an inflamed and blocked maxillary sinus is a possible candidate for surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty.
