Sinuss are air-filled pockets behind the facial bones surrounding the nose. Each sinus has an opening through which mucus drains. This drainage keeps your sinuses working well and you healthy.Anything that obstruscts that flow may cause a buildup of musus in the sinuses,which may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinuses. Sinusitis occurs when the linings of your nose sinuses and throat become inflamed, possibly from a pre-existing cold or other allergies. Chronic sinusitis is when this inflammation lasts three months or more.
Typical treatment for sinusitis begins with medication prescribed by your doctor. However, a majority of chronic sinusitis sufferers don't get relief with
medication. For these patients, a surgical procedure may be recommended.
Balloon SinuplastyTm is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that opens sinus passages Doctors thread a soft-tipped guidewire equipped with a tiny balloon into the nostrils and up to the area of blockage. They then inflate the balloon just enough to open the passageway. Finally, they spray fluid into the infected sinus to flush out the pus and mucus.
It relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis, without cutting and removing the natural structures in the nose.
Tens of thousands of patients have experienced long term improvement in their quality of life after a Balloon SinuplastyTm procedure.
While recovery time varies with each patient, many people quickly return to normal activities.
In balloon sinuplastyTm, inflamed sinuses are opened the same way doctors open up blocked arteries in balloon angioplasty
After Balloon SinuplastyTm, the sinuses remain open, allowing normal sinus drainage relieving sinus pressure.
