Balloon sinus dilation is a new, minimally invasive office procedure that reopens the sinus pathways and restores drainage to deliver immediate and long lasting relief to recurrent and chronic sinusitis sufferers. In balloon sinus dilation, your surgeon seeks to reshape anatomy by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinus to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage.
A diagnosis is made for chronic sinusitis:
- The doctor looks at the nose and eyes and feels for tenderness.
- An endoscope is inserted through the nose to look inside the sinuses.
- Imaging Test:
- CT scan
