Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty

Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty

Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms.

Step 1. A balloon catheter is inserted into the inflamed sinus.Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty Step 2. The balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening.Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty
Step 3. Saline is sprayed into the inflamed sinus to flush out the pus and mucus.Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty Step 4. The system is removed, leaving the sinuses open.Sinus Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty

When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.

Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe and effective: patients experienced no device-related adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms.
