Balloon Dilation for Sinusitis in Children and Adults
Chronic sinusitis not only affects millions of adults, but approximately 6 million children as well.1
Why Balloon Dilation
After 10 years and hundreds of thousands of patients treated, balloon dilation has firmly established itself as a part of the continuum of care for chronic sinusitis patients and the patient preferred treatment option.
NICE Positive Guidance Suggets2 :
- XprESS is easier than FESS as an outpatient procedure and may increase patient throughput and allow for earlier disease treatment
- XprESS is a more cost-effective treatment option compared to FESS under general or local anesthesia; saving ups to 35% when completed under general anesthesia and 47.5% when completed under local anesthesia
Clinically Proven & Established
Clinical studies show that balloon dilation has significant symptom relief comparable to FESS, through 24 months. Physicians can rely on a greater than 97% technical success rate while low revisions rates provide patients a better recovery experience.3
Patient Preferred Treatment Option
Balloon dilation provides an atraumatic procedure and enhanced experiences for patients. It provides a particularly impactful treatment option when completed under local anesthesia.
Safe, Alternative Option for Pediatrics
A recent clinical study using Entellus Medical balloon sinus dilation showed a 100% technical success rate with zero complications in 50 patients and 157 sinuses treated proving it a safe procedure. 4 You and your patient’s parents can have peace of mind knowing this safe procedure may help stop children from ongoing suffering.
