    Abstract

    In the current age of austerity, clinicians are expected to provide a high-quality but cost-effective clinical service. This is a particular challenge in surgical practice, primarily due to the overall cost of operative procedures, particularly when requiring admission. Innovative techniques applied in the outpatient setting may help achieve this. Balloon sinuplasty can be performed under local anaesthetic in an outpatient setting in a selected patient cohort.
