How does it work?
Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices are flexible instruments that allow the surgeon to restore normal drainage and function while preserving your natural anatomy. The technology uses balloon dilation to gently open your sinus passages with minimal injury, speeding recovery for patients who return to normal activity within 24 to 48 hours in most cases. In a recently published study, 90% of patients treated with Balloon Sinuplasty™ said that they would recommend it to friends and family. If you are interested in Balloon Sinuplasty™, please contact ENT Specialists to set up an appointment to learn if you are a candidate for the procedure. ENT Specialists is currently offering Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™, the information below will provide a more detailed perspective on the advantages of Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™.
What are Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices?
Relieva Balloon SinuplastyTM devices are FDA-cleared, catheterbased technologies specifically designed to navigate the tortuous sinus anatomy. The Relieva® Sinus Balloon system is used to open the blocked sinus ostium, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal. Using the Relieva Sinus Balloon system, the blocked sinus ostium is gently dilated restoring normal sinus drainage and function. Are the products currently available?
All products (Relieva® Sinus Access and Sinus Balloon products) are cleared by the FDA and available for human use.
What are the benefits of using Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices?
Safe and effective – While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, studies demonstrate that the Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.
Minimally invasive – The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices introduced entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinuses.
Reduced bleeding – In many cases, no tissue or bone is removed during surgery using this technology, because of this there may be reduced bleeding. As a result, the need for uncomfortable nasal packing may also be eliminated.
Fast recovery time – While recovery time varies with each patient, some patients have been known to return to normal activities within 24 hours.
Does not limit treatment options – The Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies and/or surgical techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if a patient has progressive disease.
