What is Sinuplasty?

"Sinuplasty" refers to a procedure, or specifically a surgical device that was developed by Acclarent.  This device is similar to balloon angioplasty, the technology that expands the vessels in someones heart.  These balloons are advanced into the opening of a patients sinuses and are expanded to open the narrowed channels and are then removed from the nose.  It can be performed in the office or in the operating room.  It is occasionally used in conjuction with more traditional sinus techniques.
