Update on Balloon Technology in Airway

17 Mar 2019


The balloon technique is an alternative, less invasive treatment than the traditional Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS). The sinuses are dilated with a balloon instead of using metal instruments to cut and remove tissue to increase the openings. Because of less risk and fewer complications, balloon sinuplasty can be performed in selected patients with same degree of impact on reduction of symptoms as the formal surgery.

It is also a potentially effective, initial or emergency treatment for selected cases of tracheal stenosis (narrowing of windpipe).
