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.
With Balloon Sinuplasty, there is no cutting of nasal bone or tissue. More than 250,000 patients suffering from chronic sinusitis have been treated by physicians using Balloon Sinuplasty technology.
Most patients report clinically meaningful improvement in sinus symptoms and quality of life through 2 years following surgery.
While recovery time varies with each patient, recovery is typically fast. In a study of in-office balloon dilation, most patients returned to work and normal activity within 2 days.
The Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is a group of medical devices that are used to create openings in your sinuses. The devices use a small, flexible balloon that is placed into the nose to reach the sinuses. The balloon is gradually inflated to gently restructure the previously blocked nasal passage, restoring normal sinus drainage.
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, and sinus medications have not been effective in relieving your symptoms, you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty.
