XprESS™ Procedure - IN OFFICE TREATMENT

The XprESS Multi-Sinus Dilation Tool from Entellus elegantly combines multiple functions in a single, less invasive tool designed for sinus dilation procedures in the office.

In-Office Treatment for Immediate and Lasting Relief

  • The XprESS tool empowers ENTs to treat maxillary, anterior ethmoid, frontal and sphenoid sinuses based on their preferred approach and confirmation method

  • Balloon can be used to open the sinus drainage pathways while potentially reducing the amount of tissue loss as compared to traditional FESS procedures1, 2
  • Dilation remodels the bony sinus outflow tract by displacement of adjacent bone and paranasal sinus structures

Balloon Sinuplasty™ Sinusitis Treatment

Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is an FDA-cleared, endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The technology uses a small, flexible, Sinus Balloon Catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage and function. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.

Steps in using the Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology

Dr. Roth has been trained to use Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology.

(1) Using the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system, Dr. Roth gently places a Sinus Guide Catheter and a flexible Sinus Guidewire through the nostrils to access the target sinus. Next, a Sinus Balloon Catheter is advanced over the Sinus Guidewire. (2) The Sinus Balloon Catheter is positioned across the blocked ostium and gently inflated. (3) The Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is removed, leaving an open sinus passageway and restoring normal drainage and function.

The Benefits in Using the Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology:

  • Safe and Effective
    While use of any surgical instrument involves some risk, clinical studies have indicated the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system to be safe and effective in relieving symptoms of sinusitis.
  • Minimally Invasive
    The technology uses small, soft, flexible devices that enter entirely through the nostrils. These devices gently open blocked sinus openings, and in many cases, without tissue or bone removal.
  • Reduced Bleeding
    Because in many instances no tissue or bone is removed when using this technology, there may be reduced bleeding associated with the procedure. As a result, the need for uncomfortable nasal packing may also be eliminated.
  • Improved Recovery Time
    While recovery time varies with each patient, many people can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
  • Does Not Limit Treatment Options
    This technology is an endoscopic tool and may be used with other medical therapies or sinus surgery techniques. It does not limit future treatment options if you have progressive disease.

As with use of any surgical instrument, there are risks, and results may vary from patient to patient. Talk to our doctors about your specific condition to find out if using the Balloon Sinuplasty™ system is right for you.

Coblation® Procedure

Coblation® tonsillectomy is a gentle way to remove both tonsils. Coblation tonsillectomy uses radiofrequency, or RF, to remove tonsillar tissue. RF is a form of energy like radio waves, but with a higher frequency. Coblation tonsillectomy uses this energy in a precise and carefully controlled surgical process that causes very little harm to healthy tissue. Published studies have shown Coblation tonsillectomy to have the following patient benefits:

  • Less pain and less frequent use of narcotics1
  • Significantly faster return to normal diet (2.4 days versus 7.6 days on average)
  • Less incidence of postoperative nausea and throat swelling2
  • Less thermal damage to adjacent tissue3
  • Faster healing3
