Balloon Sinuplasty Solana Beach - San Diego, CA

What are the benefits of using Balloon?

Safe and effective – While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, studies demonstrate that the Balloon Sinuplasty system may be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.

Minimally invasive – The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices introduced entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinuses.

Reduced bleeding – In many cases, no tissue or bone is removed during surgery using this technology, because of this there may be reduced bleeding. As a result, the need for uncomfortable nasal packing may also be eliminated.

Fast recovery time – While recovery time varies with each patient, some patients have been known to return to normal activities within 24 hours.

Does not limit treatment options – The Balloon Sinuplasty technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies and/or surgical techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if a patient has progressive disease.

Balloon Sinuplasty (sinusplasty sinoplasty balloon sinus catheter)

Step 1: Using the Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty system, the otolaryngologist gains access to the target sinus with a Sinus Guide Catheter and a flexible Sinus Guidewire. Then a Sinus Balloon Catheter is advanced over the Sinus Guidewire.


Step 2: The Sinus Balloon Catheter is positioned across the blocked ostium and gently inflated.


Step 3: The Relieva system is removed, leaving an open sinus ostium and restoring normal sinus drainage and function. For more information, call your Acclarent representative or visit

What are Balloon Sinuplasty devices?

Balloon Sinuplasty™ devices are FDA-cleared, catheter-based technologies specifically designed to navigate the tortuous sinus anatomy. The Relieva™ Sinus Balloon system is used to open the blocked sinus ostium, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal. Using the Relieva Sinus Balloon system, the blocked sinus ostium is gently dilated restoring normal sinus drainage and function.
