Balloon Sinuplasty at Nuffield Health at St Bartholomew's Hospital
Or call us on
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe and minimally invasive procedure used by surgeons to treat chronic sinusitis. Doctors thread a guide wire equipped with a tiny balloon into the nostrils and up to the area of blockage.
Chronic sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus lining lasting three months or more, and is one of the most commonly diagnosed chronic illnesses. It is typically caused by bacterial, viral, and/or microbial infections.
Structural issues such as blockage of the sinus opening can also lead to chronic sinusitis. If the opening is closed, normal mucus drainage may not occur. This condition may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinuses.
Sinuses are air-filled pockets that surround the nose. Each sinus has an opening through which mucus drains. Chronic sinusitis sufferers do not experience the normal drainage which keeps the sinus healthy.
Typical treatment begins with medication prescribed by your doctor. However, for some patients medication will not provide symptom relief, and surgery will be recommended.
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe and minimally invasive procedure used by surgeons to treat chronic sinusitis. Doctors thread a guide wire equipped with a tiny balloon into the nostrils and up to the area of blockage. They then inflate the balloon just enough to open the passageway. Sinuses are opened in the same way that doctors open up blocked arteries during a balloon angioplasty.
Tens of thousands of patients have experienced the benefits of the balloon sinuplasty.
