Balloon Sinuplasty Technology
Innovative, Minimally Invasive Devices
Since 2005, the Balloon Sinuplasty technology has emerged as a new complement to existing approaches or as a standalone procedure performed in the operating room or office.
This technology utilizes a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter that is placed into the nose to reach the sinuses. The sinus balloon catheter is gradually inflated to gently restructure the previously blocked nasal passage, maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining and restoring normal sinus drainage and function. There is minimal bleeding, and many patients have been able to return to normal activities within 48 hours of an in-office procedure.1
Clinical research has indicated that the Balloon Sinuplasty system is a safe and effective tool in dilating blocked sinuses, resulting in relief from sinus symptoms.
