Sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinuses that occurs with a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection. Also, blockage of the sinus opening (ostium) can inhibit normal mucus drainage that may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinus.
Sinusitis symptoms may include:
Facial pain, pressure
Nasal congestion or fullness
Difficulty breathing through the nose
Yellow or green mucus from the nose
Loss of the sense of smell or taste
There are two types of sinusitis: acute and chronic. Symptoms of acute sinusitis can last for several days. However, if symptoms occur frequently or persist for more than three months, it may be chronic sinusitis.

If you suffer from persistent sinusitis, or chronic sinusitis, now there is a less invasive, surgical treatment option to relieve the pain. Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology is designed to move easily through the sinus to unblock the sinus ostium. Usually bone or tissue removal is not required, and normal sinus drainage and function is restored after the procedure.
