Balloon Sinuplastyâ„¢ Technology Now Available at MCCG

Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology Now Available at MCCG

Sinusitis is one of the most common chronic health problems in the U.S., each year afflicting 37 million Americans. Sinusitis significantly impacts an individual's physical, functional and emotional quality of life. The Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices offer new hope in relief to chronic sufferers.

Endoscopic sinus surgery with this technology involves using a small, flexible balloon catheter that is placed through the nostril into the blocked sinus passageway. When the balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and opens the sinus passageway, restoring normal sinus drainage and function. In many cases, tissue or bone removal is not required. This may result in reduced bleeding and post-procedure discomfort for patients. 

The Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology has undergone rigorous clinical validation. A study in the prestigious journal, Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, reported:

  • 91.6 percent functional patency rate at one-year; 70 patients (217 sinuses)
  • No serious adverse events at two years; 65 patients (195 sinuses)
  • Symptom improvement for 85 percent of patients across the two-year post-surgery period
