Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive technique designed to improve sinus symptoms immediately with little to no downtime. The experts at Adobe ENT & Allergy are skilled to provide immediate sinus relief with this technique. Minimally invasive sinus surgery can be combined in the office with traditional sinus surgery in order to provide the relief and treatment needed.
State Of The Art Technology
Anatomy Will Sometimes Dictate The Right Tool
Adobe ENT & Allergy offers the right tool for the job. Adobe physicians offer the Acclarent Relieva Spin or the Medtronic Nuvent depending on the patient needs. Anatomy will sometimes dictate one tool or the other and Adobe ENT is proud to offer either option for their patient needs. Outcomes are excellent as navigated sinus surgery confirms proper placement.
What Is Balloon Sinuplasty?
Sinuplasty For Chronic Sinusitis Relief
Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that relieves the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. It is used by surgeons to safely and effectively treat chronic sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications such as antibiotics, nasal steroids, or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, and are seeking relief from uncomfortable and painful sinusitis symptoms. Similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked arteries, Balloon Sinuplasty, a system of catheter-based instruments, opens blocked sinuses. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery. It allows most patients to return to normal activities quickly within 48 Hours.
How Does It Work?
Achieves Surgical Results In 45 Minutes
With Balloon Sinuplasty, a specially-designed catheter is inserted into the nose to reach the blocked sinus cavity. A small balloon is slowly inflated, which widens and restructures the walls of the sinus passage, helping to drain mucus from the blocked sinus and restore normal sinus drainage without cutting and with minimal bleeding. This approach also preserves the natural structure of the sinuses.Published clinical data shows that Balloon Sinuplasty provides symptom relief for the majority of patients:
In the operating room:
• A multi-center study of 1,036 patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty reported that sinus symptoms improved in 95 percent of patients at an average follow-up period of 9 months.
• Another multi-center study followed 65 patients who had Balloon Sinuplasty and reported clinically and statistically significant improvement in patient symptoms out to two years.
In the office:
Acclarent office-based sinus dilation is:
• Safe and effective, with clinically and statistically significant improvement in symptom and radiographic scores
• Practical, with 93.2% of sinuses successfully dilated and evidence suggesting suitability for patients with mild/moderate ethmoid disease
• Compelling for patients, with the majority of patients returning to normal activity within 2 days of the procedure.
• At the 1 year follow up, following office-based balloon sinuplasty, significant improvements in quality of life observed at 24 weeks were maintained at 1 year post-surgery. These extended results provide further evidence of office-based Balloon Sinuplasty as an effective, minimally invasive procedure for appropriately selected patients with CRS.
