Balloon Sinus Dilation


Balloon Sinus Dilation

Almost 50% of chronic sinusitis patients are not successfully treated with medical therapy. Standard of care begins with medical therapy (antibiotics and steroids).

For patients suffering from chronic sinusitis, symptoms may include:

  • Pressure
  • Pain
  • Congestion
  • Fatigue

Balloon Sinusplasty safely and effectively dilates sinus openings, resulting in relief from sinus symptoms. In some patients it can be performed in the office with local anesthesia only.

Step 1 A soft, flexible guidewire is inserted into the blocked sinus.

Step 2 The balloon is advanced over the guidewire and is inflated to gently expand the sinus opening.

Step 3 The balloon is removed, leaving the sinus open.
