Introduction
Balloon sinus dilation is becoming an increasingly common procedure, finding a niche as an invaluable tool in endoscopic sinus surgery.

Aim
To assess the effectiveness of balloon sinus dilation (BSD) in 1-day surgery in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis without polyps based on our own experience.

Material and methods
The study group consisted of 9 patients. The Lund-Mackay scale for computed tomography of the paranasal sinuses was assessed prior to surgery. Endoscopy was performed on the basis of the Lund-Kennedy scale and patients were asked to perform the SNOT-22 survey. Two patients underwent balloon sinuplasty under general and seven under local anaesthesia.

Results
Twelve maxillary and eight frontal sinuses were widened (four attempts were unsuccessful). The SNOT-22 survey was assessed the day after surgery (average of 8 points) and a month after surgery (average of 15.5 points).

Conclusions
BSD only allows widening of the ostia of the maxillary, frontal and sphenoid sinuses. BSD offers shorter post-surgical recovery, and a more rapid return to work because of its less invasive and less traumatic nature.
