Balloon Sinuplasty

Pediatric BSP

Are your child’s chronic sinus symptoms not completely responding to medication?

Your child is not alone.

There is a lack of evidence of antibiotic success for chronic sinus symptoms.(1) (2) This affects parents and children through reduced energy levels, chronic nasal congestion, considerable loss of school time and accumulation of medical expenses.(3)

Talk to an ENT doctor about Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty safely and effectively widens the maxillary sinus openings, resulting in relief from sinus symptoms. Sinus openings are accessed through the nostril using a narrow camera and Balloon Sinuplasty Technology.

Balloon Sinuplasty doesn’t remove any bone or tissue, there are no incisions, and nothing remains in your child’s nose.(4) (5) (6) (7)

  • Balloon Sinuplasty studies demonstrated long-term success for 8 out of 10 children when done with an Adenoidectomy or after a failed Adenoidectomy. (4) (5) (6) (7)
  • Balloon Sinuplasty and Adenoidectomy may be performed during the same procedure. Talk to your doctor about benefits and risks.
