When Is Balloon Sinuplasty Necessary?
Balloon sinuplasty becomes necessary when traditional methods of clearing the sinuses prove ineffective. Swollen mucus membranes in the nasal cavity can swell due to colds or allergies. When this happens, the sinuses can no longer drain, and buildup becomes inevitable. Acute sinusitis typically responds to methods such as saline rinses, steam, OTC decongestants and, in more advanced cases, prescription antibiotics. Chronic sinusitis is resistant to many of these at-home methods and may, when totally unresponsive to treatment, necessitate medical intervention. For years, that has come in the form of sinus surgery. Now, advancements in sinus treatment have made balloon sinuplasty possible â€“ allowing for a clearing of the sinuses without incisions, surgical instruments, or the risks that come with surgical intervention.
