Balloon Sinuplasty, Acclarent, USA
Balloon Sinuplasty technology is a FDA-approved, endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. It’s similar to angioplasty; the procedure heart surgeons use to clear out clogged coronary arteries. The technology uses a small, flexible Sinus Balloon Catheter to open up blocked sinus openings, restoring normal sinus drainage, ventilation and function. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the sinus canals while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
