Sinus Angioplasty, sometimes also referred to as Balloon Sinuplasty, opens the passageways, relieving sinusitis. This is an excellent procedure for those who suffer from chronic sinus problems.
The procedure opens the sinus cavities the same way doctors open clogged arteries when they do balloon angioplasty.
After the siuplasty, the sinus openings become significantly wider. In most cases, they stay that way, because the balloon has actually fractured the bones and spread them apart, all without pain.
In most cases, balloon sinusplasty appears to be more effective than conventional surgery.
