Summary : Objectives: To report early clinical experience with balloon dilation of the frontal recess (« Balloon Sinuplasty »), to describe surgical technique, to assess its feasibility and effectiveness. Material and Methods: This prospective, multi-institutional case series describes all patients who underwent balloon sinuplasty for frontal sinus ostium stenosis from May 2011 to December 2011. Results: Eight adult patients under- went a total of 11 frontal balloon sinuplasty in the clinical setting. The mean age was 46 ± 12. All procedures were perfor­med under general anesthesia. No complications occurred. Six of the eight patients were deemed cured with a follow-up range of 1-7 months. For 2 patients the procedure was unsuccessful. Conclusions: Balloon dilatation of the frontal recess is a safe and feasible technique with a comparable efficacy to conven­tio­nal surgical treatment modalities. There is a need for randomi­sed controlled trials and cost-effectiveness studies.
