Sinusitis is an infection of the sinus lining brought on by bacteria, fungi, or viruses. It may also be caused by structural issues, such as a blocked sinus opening (ostium). Closed ostium results in difficulty in normal mucus drainage, further leading to inflammation and infection of the sinuses. Sinus is also known as rhinosinusitis, resulting in symptoms such as facial pain, runny or stuffy nose, and occasional fever.

Sinus dilation, also called balloon sinuplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure that allows adequate airflow and restores natural drainage by opening obstructed sinus passages. It uses a variety of implantable devices to lessen postoperative inflammation, gives local medicine, and increase the patency of sinus apertures. These devices are replacing traditional sinus devices as the preferred method of treating chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), proving to be refractory. Patients with severe ethmoid or other sinus irritations can also utilize them with other treatments. Several manufacturers release instruments that use microsensors to pinpoint device placement during operations.

Key Highlights

  • Balloon sinus dilation devices dominate the product segment
  • Adult dominates the application segment
  • Hospitals dominate the end-user segment
  • North America is the highest shareholder in the global market
