Study Boasts Positive Results for Balloon Sinuplasty

Article-Study Boasts Positive Results for Balloon Sinuplasty

The results of a study involving patients who underwent balloon sinuplasty is good news for patients who want a faster recovery, doctors who want to save costs, and manufacturers of the device. The study, noted in the Chicago Tribune, states that patients who had the balloon procedure experienced (in general) faster recovery rates and fewer postoperative doctor visits compared to invasive conventional surgery.

Lower healthcare costs ensue, because the technology appears to require less time in the operating room than traditional sinus surgery. The study also found that after six months, most balloon sinuplasty patients were infection-free and had unobstructed sinuses.
