Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis.  It is used to safely and effectively treat chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications such as antibiotics, nasal steroids, or over‐the‐counter(OTC) drugs, and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms.  Similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked arteries, Balloon Sinuplasty, a system of FDA‐cleared, catheter‐based instruments, opens blocked sinuses.  The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. It allows most patients to return to normal activities quickly.  With Balloon Sinuplasty, a specially‐designed catheter is inserted into the nose to reach the inflamed sinus cavity. A small balloon is slowly inflated, which permanently widens and restructures the walls of the sinus passage, helping to drain mucus from the blocked sinus and restore normal sinus drainage without cutting and with minimal bleeding. This approach also preserves the natural structure of the sinuses.

The symptoms of sinus problems can vary widely depending on the type and severity of each patient’s condition, but often significantly affect a patient’s quality of life.

Common symptoms include:
Facial pain and pressure
Mucous discharge
Nasal obstruction
Fever
Headache
Congestion
Fatigue
Changes or loss in sense of smell and taste Balloon Sinuplasty
