When I write about balloon sinuplasty, the focus is usually on this procedure’s speed and rapid recovery times. But one aspect that occasionally gets overlooked is its versatility: balloon sinuplasty can open airways across many of the air-filled chambers in your face known collectively as the sinuses:
The balloon can be used to unblock three pairs of sinuses in the face: the frontal sinuses above the eyes, the sphenoid sinuses behind the nose and the maxillary sinuses in the cheeks.
This process is repeated for each of the patient’s blocked sinuses, outlined by a CT scan done before surgery.
This video shows a patient undergoing the procedure, complete with the requisite shot of relief after it’s done.
