Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Technical Success: Sinuses Successfully Treated With Balloon Dilation [ Time Frame: Index procedure ]
    Number of successful dilations out of all attempted dilations. Success is defined as the device successfully delivered to the target sinus, inflated, deflated, and withdrawn from the treated sinus.

  2. Complications [ Time Frame: Index procedure through 3-month follow-up ]
    Number of subjects who experience complications. Complications are defined as serious device or procedure related adverse events.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Quality of Life From Baseline Through Completion [ Time Frame: Baseline to 6-month follow-up ]
    Change in sinonasal symptom severity between the baseline preprocedure assessment and follow-up assessment. Sinus symptom severity is measured using the Sinus and Nasal Quality of Life Survey (SN-5) that is a validated tool for use in pediatric patients (completed by caregivers). The 5 survey items are scored from 1 (best) to 7 (worst) and averaged to provide an overall score.

  2. Number of Subjects Who Undergo a Revision or Additional Surgery During the Study [ Time Frame: Procedure-6 month follow up ]
    Any surgical intervention that is performed in the sinus(es) following the index procedure will be reported
