Medical Therapy for Sinusitis

Sinusitis is typically treated first with medication. Treatment with antibiotics or topical nasal steroid sprays may be successful in reducing mucosal swelling, fighting infection, and relieving obstructions of the sinus opening (ostium). Inhaling steam or using nasal sprays and drops may also help relieve sinus discomfort. However, at least 20% of patients do not respond adequately to medications.

Surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty

An ENT physician will use Balloon SinuplastyTM devices to open the blockage that is preventing the sinus drainage.

Ballon SinuplastyTM technology is used by qualified ENT physicians and involves the use of small balloons to open blocked sinuses; this approach is similar to the usage of balloons to open blocked arteries in modern angioplasty.

Benefits

Safe and Effective

While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical research has demonstrated the Balloon SinuplastyTM System to be safe and effective, and to deliver clinically significant improvement in sinusitis symptoms.

Minimally Invasive

The technology uses small, soft, flexible devises that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, in many cases without tissue or bone removal.

Decreased Bleeding

Because in many instances not tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be decreased bleeding associated with the procedure.
