Across multiple studies, balloon sinus dilation has delivered statistically significant, clinically meaningful, and enduring sinusitis symptom relief.1 Published data shows balloon dilation of the frontal, sphenoid and maxillary/ethmoid infundibulum can be consistently and successfully performed by physicians in the office and the OR. And the REMODEL randomized controlled trial reported no statistically significant difference in revision rates between balloon dilation and FESS.

REMODEL is the first prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized, controlled trial with sufficient statistical power to compare standalone balloon sinus dilation to the standard of care, functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) for the treatment of medically refractory CRS
