Symptoms

• facial pain and pressure
• blocked nose
• nasal discharge
• reduced sense of smell
• congestion
• cough

In more advanced cases, the following symptoms may also be present:

• fever
• halitosis, or foul-smelling breath
• tiredness
• toothache
• headache

Causes

Sinusitis can stem from various factors, but it always results from fluid becoming trapped in the sinuses. This fuels the growth of germs.

• Viruses: In adults, 90 percent cases of sinusitis result from a virus
• Bacteria: In adults, 1 case in 10 is caused by bacteria
• Pollutants: Chemicals or irritants in the air can trigger a buildup of mucus
• Fungi: The sinuses either react to fungi in the air, as in allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS), or they are invaded by fungi, as in chronic indolent sinusitis.

More about Treatment

Balloon sinuplasty involves little to no tissue removal inside the nose and sinuses. At the present time, it is used to open the frontal, maxillary and sphenoid sinuses. Because the technique was recently introduced, surgeons are still learning which patients it will work best for and when it is the appropriate choice of device for surgery. Situations that balloon sinuplasty is usually not appropriate for are cases of large nasal polyps or significant scarring from previous sinus surgery.
