Steps in using the Balloon SinuplastyTM Techonology
The technology is used by qualified Ear, Nose and Throat Physicians.
Using the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system, your physician gently places a Sinus Guide Catherter and a flexible Sinus Guidewire through the nostrils to access the target sinus. Next a Sinus Balloon Catheter is advanced over the Sinus Guidewire.
The Sinus Balloon Catheter is positioned across the blocked ostium and gently inflated.
The Balloon SinuplastyTM system is removed, leaving an open sinus passageway and restoring normal drainage and function.
The Benefits of Using the Balloon SinuplastyTM Technology
Safe and Effective
While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical studies have indicated the Balloon SinuplastyTM system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms and sinusitis.
The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding associated with the procedure. As a result, the need for uncomfortable nasal packing may also be eliminated.
