When is Balloon Sinus Dilation Recommended?
Sinusitis is a common problem that affects millions of people. It causes congestion, pressure and pain within the eye area, cheek, nose and forehead. In USA alone, over 17 percent of women and 10 percent of men are suffering from this condition. The symptoms may last a short period during cold or they may last longer and they will exist for many months without getting any relief.
Symptoms of Sinusitis
Sinus is a hollow air space found in the bone on the upper face. Sometimes it gets inflamed or blocked which may lead to mucus buildup. The buildup may cause too much pain, fullness and pressure. Other symptoms may be green and yellow mucus discharge, difficulty in breathing, sore throat, fatigue, headaches, teeth pain and loss of taste and smell.
Sinusitis affects the quality of life of a patient and it interferes with everyday activities. If you have a sinus problem, you should see a doctor to discuss about the treatment options you can try out.
Different treatment options for sinus
Your doctor may try out different medications to treat sinusitis with other related problems by the use of saline nasal sprays, decongestants, nasal steroids sprays or antibiotics. Some people will feel some relief when they use medication but others will still have the symptoms and they will not be able carry out their normal activities on a daily basis.
When the symptoms of sinusitis do not go away, then doctors suggest undergoing sinus surgery. Balloon Sinuplasty in Alabama is the latest treatment used which is not invasive but it can still help to relieve the symptoms caused by chronic sinusitis. The technique requires the use of a flexible and thin balloon catheter which is put in the nose and it will inflate gradually opening up the sinuses that had blocked. It unblocks the nasal passage and it can restructure the bone inside the nose which will alleviate the pain and it promotes drainage. This procedure is recommended for patients who suffer from sinus obstruction caused by maxillary, sphenoid and frontal sinuses.
Many people turn to Balloon Sinus Dilation since it is minimally invasive, it is safe, it takes little time to recover and it does not involve too much bleeding.
