Otolaryngologist William Sneed, MD, is one of the first physicians in this area to offer this technology. He says, "The Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a true advance in sinus care because in many cases it can be done without removing any tissue or bone. That means faster recovery times and less post-procedure discomfort. In fact, many of my patients have been able to return to normal activities within 24 hours and have had significant improvement in their symptoms."

The international, multi-center study call CLEAR stands for The CLinical Evaluation to Confirm SAfety and Efficacy of Sinuplasty in the PaRanasal Sinuses. It confirmed in the July 2007 issue of the prestigious journal, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, earlier rigorous clinical validation that the Balloon Sinuplasty™ instruments by Acclarent™ are safe and effective for opening blocked sinuses. The CLEAR study reported 24-week results on 109 patients, which demonstrated:

 
  • 0% adverse event rate
  • 96.9% successful ostial dilation
  • 98% observed ostial patency rate
  • 81% overall patency rate (17% of ostia indeterminate due to anatomical preservation)
  • Clinically and statistically significant improvement in patient symptoms

Sinusitis patients who are considering their options can learn more about the Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology by Acclarent™ by contacting Baptist Health Line at 601-948-6262.
