Balloon Sinuplasty is a procedure that uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open blocked sinus passages in order to restore normal sinus drainage. When used by a qualified Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician, the technology is safe, effective and minimally invasive, resulting in a quick recovery.

Balloon Sinuplasty

What is Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon Sinuplasty is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis.  The 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 is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis.

Technology Overview

Balloon Sinuplasty Technology is used by qualified Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) physicians and involves the use of tiny balloons to open blocked sinuses similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked coronary arteries.

Balloon Sinuplasty Benefits

  • Safe and Effective - While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty System to be safe and effective inimproving symptoms of sinusitis.
  • Minimally Invasive - The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils.  This device gently opens blocked sinuses, in many cases without tissue or bone removal.
  • Minimal Bleeding - While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty System to be safe and effective in improving symptoms of sinusitis.
  • Quick Recovery Time - The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils.  This device gently opens blocked sinuses, in many cases without tissue or bone removal.
  • Does Not Limit Treatment Options - This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.
