Studies Confirm Balloon Sinuplasty(TM) Helps Chronic Sinusitis Patients
Date:4/13/2008

es was similar or lower for patients when compared with traditional surgical instrumentation.

"Our aim is to provide long lasting relief for our chronic sinusitis patients in a way that is more satisfying and less painful to recover from than the traditional surgical technique. Now we have a proven solution that allows us to provide this level of care with out additional cost in selected patients. This technique can be performed under local anesthesia and minimizes risk to the patients," said lead author and surgeon Michael Friedman, M.D., of The Advanced Center for Specialty Care in Chicago.

Separate data in the April 2008 issue of Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology also concluded Balloon Sinuplasty(TM) instrumentation is safe and effective. More than 95 percent of the study's 1,036 patients enjoyed sinus symptom improvement over an average follow-up of 40 weeks and no adverse events were attributable to Balloon Sinuplasty(TM).

On behalf of the 34 surgeons who took part in the Annals study, Dr. Howard Levine, director of the Cleveland Nasal, Sinus and Sleep Center said, "The results from this study reinforce the outstanding safety record of Balloon Sinuplasty(TM) technology, and underscore its effectiveness in alleviating chronic sinusitis symptoms. Results were universally excellent across a large population of patients and dozens of different practices."

Bill Facteau, President and CEO of Acclarent, Inc., said, "These data further confirm the safety, efficacy, and high patient satisfaction that have previously been published in other studies on Balloon Sinuplasty(TM). The multiple investigators of these papers have also demonstrated the cost effectiveness and reported on the economic advantages to the healthcare system when using this established tool in sinus surgery."
