Safety and feasibility of balloon catheter dilation of paranasal sinus ostia: a preliminary investigation



Safety and feasibility of balloon catheter dilation of paranasal sinus ostia: a preliminary investigation



Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology 115(4): 293-9; Discussion 300-1



Objectives: Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is an effective option for managing patients in whom medical therapy for rhinosinusitis fails. However. ESS is not always successful, and serious complications can occur. New techniques and instrumentation that improve outcomes and reduce complications would be seriously welcomed. Innovative catheter-based technology has improved treatment of several conditions such as coronary artery disease. peripheral vascular disease, and stroke.
