Balloon Sinuplasty for Chronic Sinusitis Relief

Step 1 Step 2
Step 3 Step 4

Similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked arteries, Balloon Sinuplasty™, a system of FDA-cleared, endoscopic, catheter-based instruments, opens blocked sinuses.

With Balloon Sinuplasty™, a specially-designed catheter is inserted into the nose to reach the inflamed 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 with minimal bleeding.1 This approach also preserves the natural structure of the sinuses.

The Balloon Sinuplasty™ System is intended for use by or under the direction of a physician that is trained in the use of Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology. Prior to use, it is important to read the Instructions for use and to understand the contraindications, warnings, and precautions associated with this device.
