Balloon sinus dilation (BSD) represents the first step toward tissue preservation technique and away from the destructive access techniques. Dr. Mark Agrama proudly offers Balloon Sinuplasty surgery as procedure under local anesthesia. Balloon Sinuplasty avoids extensive cutting and trauma. Sinus Surgeons of Jacksonville, Florida offer the latest proven technology and treatment for chronic sinusitis called Balloon Sinuplasty. Through our thoughtful.

CalSinus blaloon were the first in the World to use the current sinus balloon techniques – as we worked with industry partners during their development – over a decade ago.
We specialize in the treatment of all stages of sinus problems including early to late subclasses. Often it is used in cases of early sinusitis — before polyps have developed and in the office setting. It is used in the OR in a few cases where the anatomy is very sinuplazty.
Efficacy & Outcomes of Balloon Sinuplasty in Chronic Rhinosinusitis: A Prospective Study
The technology uses a small, flexible, tube with a dilating balloon on the end. Dilation is used to open up blocked sinus openings. This will push aside bones and tear soft tissue thus increasing the sinus drainage and hopefully function. Often after the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining, without significant bleeding or tissue removal.
Balloon sinuplasty, also called catheter-based dilation of sinus ostia or functional endoscopic dilation of the sinuses, uses several devices that are guided into the sinuses and used to dilate the sinus openings — the same way angioplasty dilates the vessels on the heart.
Balloon sinuplasty involves little to no tissue removal inside the nose and sinuses. At the present time, it is used to open the frontal, maxillary sinuplastyy sphenoid sinuses. Because the technique was recently introduced, surgeons are still learning which patients it will work best for and when it is the appropriate choice of device for surgery.
Situations that balloon sinuplasty is usually not appropriate for are cases sinuplsty large nasal polyps or significant scarring siunplasty previous sinus surgery. Some studies conducted so far appear promising with many selected patients reporting good results. Patients who undergo balloon sinuplasty appear to have a little less pain and bleeding during the post-operative period.
There are many new studies in progress that may soon help physicians better determine how the balloon sinuplasty device fits into the sinusitis management spectrum.
Balloon Sinuplasty technology is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The FDA-cleared sinuplastg uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked baloon passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage.
When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining. Balloon Sinuplasty devices provide an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. Recently published data in the leading ENT journal shows that the technology is safe and effective: This is similar to how angioplasty uses balloons to open blocked coronary arteries.
As with use of any surgical instrument, there are risks, and results may vary from patient to patient. Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus sinuplaety. If the sinus opening becomes swollen shut, normal mucus drainage may not occur, and this may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinuses.
What are the common symptoms of sinusitis?
How long does symptom relief last after surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty technology? Results vary by individual. Published clinical data has shown the following regarding patients who have had sinus surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty technology:.
Another study followed 65 patients at multiple institutions and reported clinically and statistically significant improvement in patient symptoms out to 2 years. Balloon Sinuplasty devices are endoscopic tools used ballloon conventional sinus surgery and may be used with other medical therapies.
They do not limit future treatment options for patients.
Balloon sinuplasty: Facts, costs, and recovery
Are Balloon Sinuplasty devices covered by other insurance carriers? Most insurance companies cover sinus surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty devices. To be certain of your coverage, contact your insurance provider to find out your specific coverage policy. Balloon Dilation of Sinus Openings: Steps in using this technology: Technology Overview Balloon Sinuplasty devices provide an endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis.
Safe and Effective While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical studies have indicated this approach to be – safe and effective – in relieving symptoms of sinusitis, in carefully selected patients. Minimally Invasive The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings in many cases, without tissue or bone removal. Reduced Bleeding Because no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there is often very little bleeding associated with the procedure.
Improved Recovery Time Most patients return to normal activities the next day. Does Not Limit Treatment Options This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques.
It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease. If the balloon fails to address your sinus problems other options may be available in the office or the OR.
