New Clinical Consensus Statement: Balloon Dilation of the Sinuses

AAO-HNSF Clinical Consensus Statement: Balloon Dilation of the Sinuses
8:45 – 9:45 am
Room E352

For the final day of the Annual Meeting & OTO Experience, make sure you save time for the Miniseminar presentation and discussion of the Academy’s new Clinical Consensus Statement: Balloon Dilation of the Sinuses.

“Our new clinical consensus statement addresses one of the most pressing issues we face today. It is a game-changing statement,” said EVP and CEO James C. Denneny III, MD.

Jay F. Piccirillo, MD, chair of the consensus statement panel, will moderate the session. Miniseminar panelists include Spencer C. Payne, MD, assistant consensus statement chair, and Richard M. Rosenfeld, MD, MPH, a member of the consensus statement panel.

“There has been a real explosion in the use of sinus ostial dilation procedures without a real reduction in the traditional functional endoscopic surgery procedures,” said Dr. Piccirillo. “There is also an ever-expanding list of indications, so sinus ostial dilation has fallen under increased scrutiny.”

A consensus statement reflects the opinions developed by an organized group of experts. Two modified Delphi surveys were used to rate the consensus of the expert panel concerning statements on patient criteria, perioperative considerations, and outcomes of balloon dilation of the sinuses. The panel reached consensus on 13 statements. The new consensus statement will be submitted to Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.
