When used as a stand-alone therapy, Entellus Medical’s balloon sinus dilation products are the only devices proven in a sufficiently powered prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial to be as effective as functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS. Patients treated with Entellus Medical’s products in this trial in the ENT physician office also experienced faster recovery, less bleeding at discharge, less use of prescription pain medication and fewer post-procedure debridements than patients receiving FESS.
