Scientists from NMPCE have led a national project to study the safety and efficacy of using endoscopic balloon dilatation to treat narrowing of airways in children. The study is reported in a recent paper, written in collaboration with clinical colleagues from Newcastle, Alder Hey, Guy’s & St Thomas’, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street and the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence. It found that procedural success was achieved in 88% of patients and 6% of procedures were associated with in-hospital complications, with no long-term adverse safety concerns. The study provides important evidence that will support updates to national guidance.
