Indications for a Balloon Sinuplasty

Patients diagnosed with chronic sinusitis, who are unresponsive to medications, may be ideal candidates for the surgery. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the passages that drain each of the sinuses around the nose and the eyes. Sufferers experience incapacitating headaches, nasal blockages, difficulty in breathing / labored breathing, facial neuralgia, and occasional loss of the sense of smell.

Success Rate of a Balloon Sinuplasty

A study that followed up on 65 patients at multiple health institutions and hospitals reported statistically significant improvement in the symptoms up to a period of 2 years. Clinical research has revealed that using Balloon Sinuplasty technology is an extremely safe and effectual method to treat obstinate cases of sinusitis.

Balloon Sinuplasty: The Procedure

  • Endoscopic Sinus Surgery using Balloon Catheters is performed on an out-patient basis.
  • The average time for an Endoscopic Sinus Surgery using Catheter Balloons is about 3 hours, including the surgery and post-anesthesia recovery time. Patients do not require an overnight stay at the hospital.
  • A local or general anesthesia is given depending on the what the surgeons thinks is appropriate. The procedure involves inserting balloon catheters, guide wires irrigation catheters, and illumination systems into the nose, hence, the patient may become uncomfortable and find it difficult to remain still during the entire procedure.
  • The surgeon then inserts a sinus guide catheter in to the nostril to gain entry to the sinus passage, using an endoscope. An endoscope permits the physician to see through the nasal passages in to the sinus cavities to make sure that he is inserting the catheter in to the right place. A sinus illumination system is then inserted into the affected sinus using a sinus guide catheter. The sinus illumination system is highly important, since, it provides fiber optic light transmission, that assists the surgeon to ascertain whether he has placed the sinus guide catheter in the accurate place.
  • Thereafter, a balloon catheter, i.e., a tiny balloon inside a catheter, is inserted in to the sinus cavity using a sinus illumination system and is placed in the blocked ostium / cavity / passage for inflation. The balloon is then inflated to clear / unblock and redesign the ostium. Subsequently, the balloon is deflated and removed.
  • After that, an irrigation catheter is advanced over the sinus illumination system to unclog the sinus of any mucus, phlegm or pus. Lastly, the sinus irrigation catheter is removed, and the entire procedure restores normal sinus drainage.

Complications / risks associated with a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure

Clinical data and trials, demonstrate no adverse or unfavorable side effects or risks associated with the Balloon Sinuplasty procedure. Though, some experts say, the brain is in close propinquity to the sinuses; therefore, there could be a minor risk of injury. The frontal sinus is principally challenging for an ENT surgeon.

Recovery after a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure

Whilst the recovery time varies with each individual, many return to their normal activities within 24 hours.

Benefits of a Balloon Sinuplasty

  • The most significant advantage of the Balloon Sinoplasty procedure is that there is no need for incisions and thus there is no swelling or bleeding. It is quite a painless and swift procedure. The linings of the sinus and nasal passages are not disturbed during the procedure and no blood is lost
  • The technique restructures and broadens the walls of the passage way while keeping intact the integrity of the sinus lining.
  • Sinusitis is notorious for causing immense pain for prolonged periods of time, and Balloon Sinuplasty could finally be an ideal solution to manage painful sinuses and banish difficult or labored breathing.

Alternatives to a Balloon Sinuplasty

  • Invariably, sinusitis can be treated by non-invasive medical techniques such as antibiotics or topical nasal steroid drops or sprays, or steam inhalation.
  • Surgical intervention: the surgery involves opening up and widening the sinus passages to actually remove the obstruction and restore normal drainage of mucus and pus. The surgical procedure entails the removal of bone and tissue to enlarge and widen the sinus opening. Although efficient, it is an invasive procedure which could cause scarring of the sinus and also lead to a recurrence.
