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 or chronic sinusitis symptoms.

Step 1. A balloon catheter is inserted into the inflamed sinus.Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery Step 1 Step 2. The balloon is inflated to expand the sinus opening.Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery Step 2

Step 3. Saline is sprayed into the sinus to flush out pus and mucus.Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery Step 3
 
Step 4.
The system is removed, leaving the sinuses open.Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery Step 4


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.
