Balloon Sinuplasty

What is Sinusitis?

Millions of adults and children suffer from sinusitis—an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses that can prevent your sinuses from draining. Mucus and fluid buildup inside
the sinuses can lead to sinus infections and more inflammation and pain.

How does balloon dilation work?

Balloon sinus dilation is a minimally invasive procedure that may provide relief that lasts for those with sinusitis symptoms.

What to expect during your procedure

  • Local anesthesia numbs your sinus tissue.
  • The physician inserts and gently inflates the balloon to dilate the treatment area.
  • The balloon dilation expands the sinus pathways to restore drainage.
  • After three to five seconds the balloon is deflated and removed.

Eustachian tube dysfunction

Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) is an affliction that commonly presents as chronic ear pressure and pain or discomfort with barometric changes.

Typically, when you yawn, chew, sneeze or swallow, your Eustachian tubes – small passageways that run between your middle ear and upper throat – open to keep pressure and fluid from building up.

If you experience Eustachian tube dysfunction or ETD – your ears may feel full and painful, and your hearing may seem muffled.

How does balloon dilation work?

Balloon dilation of the Eustachian tube provides a less invasive treatment option.

During this procedure, a small balloon is inserted through your nose and into your Eustachian tube.

The balloon is then gently inflated, and after treatment, removed.

The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia but you may also be under general anesthesia.

Talk to your doctor about which procedure is best for you.
