The Otorhinolaryngologist, initially for treating acute sinusitis, will seek medical treatment (antibiotic, decongestant, nasal steroid therapy, antihistaminic). In cases where there are recurrent infections that do not respond to medication, sinus surgery remains an alternative to the solution.
In the beginning of the 20th century. Surgery of the sinuses was classified in difficult interventions, as at that time to reach the sinuses, external injections in the face and mouth should be performed, leaving signs, discomfort and pain.
Today, these concerns no longer exist. A specialized surgeon can perform sinus surgery with a minimum of discomfort and complications. As before any intervention, it is important to create the medical history of the patient, to identify the cause of acute or chronic sinusitis, which is mostly found in the ethmoid frontal area, the area in which frontal and maxillary sinuses are related to the nose.
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)
The nasal endoscopy has been a revolution in sinus surgery. The use of endoscopy in sinus surgery is related to the theory that having healthy sinuses requires free running of the sinuses. As soon as the drainage system is improved, a sinus sore mucus is likely to return to normalcy.
FESS means introducing an endoscope (a very thin optic fiber) into the nose to make a direct visual examination of the sinus openings. By placing the microelectropept and instruments, abnormal and obstructive tissues are removed. This procedure is carried out within the nose holes, without visible and visible marks. There is a little Thursday and a bit of discomfort.
The advantage of this procedure lies in the fact that few normal tissues are sacrificed. After surgery, the patient should keep the buffer. 10 days after the intervention, it is recommended to take the nasal wash, so that the nose does not burst.
