Described separately in the late 19th century by George Caldwell and Henri Luc, (1) the Caldwell-Luc (CL) operation was the mainstay of surgical treatment for maxillary sinus disease before the advent of functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), also known as mucosa-preserving surgery.
5) of England, and Henri Luc (6) of France, working separately, described a procedure to remove the contents and diseased mucosal lining of the maxillary sinus, along with a method to create counter-drainage through an inferior meatus antrostomy.
In 1900, Henri Luc described it as a sub-periosteal temporal abscess of otitic origin without intraosseous suppuration and suggested the possible pathway of microorganism spread from middle ear submucosa by anatomical pathways especially via the superior meatus, incisura Rivinus and along the branches of deep auricular artery [7].
