Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a safe and effective sinus procedure(1,2) for chronic sinusitis patients seeking relief from uncomfortable sinus pain symptoms. Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucous that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe and effective: patients experienced no device-related adverse events and demonstrated statistically and clinically significant improvement in their sinusitis symptoms. With Balloon Sinuplasty, Dr. Reilly can open the inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and equally effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis in most patients. Balloon Sinuplasty allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose.
