Balloon Sinus Dilation is a procedure that ear, nose and throat surgeons may use for the treatment of blocked sinuses. Patients diagnosed with chronic sinusitis, not responding to medications, may be candidates for sinus surgery. Balloon technology was introduced in 2005 and is an endoscopic, catheter-based system for chronic sinusitis. The balloon is inflated to dilate the sinus openings which widens the walls of the sinus passageway, relieves symptoms and restores normal drainage.
This patented device fits over rigid, flexible and reusable positioning and suction devices by way of a conforming sleeve. The Sinusleeve™ Balloon accommodates instrumentation of varying sizes and curves, allowing access, simultaneous suction and balloon dilation all in one.
This unique, universal design is more versatile and accommodates a wider range of existing instruments than other products on the market today. Its unique design delivers unparalleled versatility and compatibility built on more than a decade of proven BSD technology. The Sinusleeve™ Balloon provides surgeons the ability to offer safe and effective results at lower cost and while using instruments with a high degree of familiarity and comfort.
Dalent Medical was launched in 2017 by ENT surgeon Dr. Agustin Arrieta and engineer Peter Flores who saw the opportunity to develop an innovative, versatile and lower cost instrument to help surgeons treat patients with chronic sinusitis.
The SinusleeveTM Balloon is the world’s first balloon sinus dilation sleeve in the ENT field that offers a unique, universal design that provides surgeons the ability to use the same device on multiple sinuses and to use existing suction instruments and other rigid instruments to access the frontal, maxillary and sphenoid sinuses. The ability to use one device such as the SinusleeveTM balloon with a wide array of surgeon-familiar instruments, while also increasing functionality at a lower cost, is a true breakthrough for ENT doctors and their patients.
