Clinical curative effect and safety of balloon sinuplasty in children with chronic rhinosinusitis.

Abstract Balloon Sinuplasty for the management of paranasal sinus inflammatory diseases was introduced in otolaryngology in 2005. Over the past decade, evidence strongly supports its safety and efficacy for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) in adults. Because it requires no bone or tissue removal, this procedure could be suitable in children. We present our initial experience of its use for the treatment of CRS in children.
