The balloon catheter is placed into the sinus to reach the inflamed sinuses and gently inflated to restructure the previously blocked nasal passage.

The Balloon Sinus Dilation preserves the normal anatomy of the sinuses and mucosal tissue, and does not require the removal of bone and tissue – this approach helps restore normal sinus functioning. FESS involves removal of bone and tissue and the recurrence rates are high.
