sinus surgery

sinus surgery

surgery to improve drainage or remove diseased sinus membranes. Open surgery includes the Caldwell-Luc procedure to treat chronic maxillary sinusitis, in which the maxillary sinus is entered by an opening under the upper lip above the teeth, and ethmoidectomy, the removal of all or a part of the mucosal lining and bony partitions between the ethmoid sinuses, to treat ethmoid or sphenoidal sinusitis. Endoscopy is used to treat acute maxillary sinusitis. Endoscopy has replaced many procedures performed with an open approach but has risks associated with the anatomical relationship of the sinuses to multiple systems. Yellow tissue indicates encroachment of the orbit of the eye, a potentially serious complication.
