Balloon Sinuplasty Method To Treat Chronic Sinusitis?
, I want to ask whether hospitals in Indonesia can operate with the Balloon Sinuplasty method for people with sticky or blocked eustachian tubes?
Thank you for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
Ballon sinuplasty is an operative procedure performed by ENT Specialists to treat chronic sinusitis, this procedure is also known as the "smart sinus" technique. Ballon sinuplasty is recommended for chronic sinusitis patients who have undergone other therapies but have not yet recovered. In several major hospitals in Jakarta, this procedure is available, but you should first check with an ENT specialist, whether it really requires this action.
The eustachian tube is a channel that connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx (throat at the back of the nose), which functions to regulate the air pressure in the ear, when the tube is blocked, barotrauma can occur, with complaints of ear pain, clogging, so hearing function seems to be reduced . In chronic barotrauma conditions, one of the treatment options is surgery, which is to install a small cylinder in the eardrum to stimulate airflow to the middle ear. This cylinder placement is carried out for 6 to 12 months.
So, to ensure the right treatment for your complaint, you should check with a doctor.
