Ostial Patency

Ostial patency is a measure of procedure durability for functional endoscopic sinus surgery and balloon sinus dilation.

REMODEL - Patency rates 1 year after treatment

Treatment # of Ostia Treated Patency Confirmed Patency Rate
Balloon Dilation 91 88 96.7%
Control (FESS) 78 77 98.7%

Both procedures show a high patency rate.
