Safety and outcome of balloon catheter Sinusotomy
, a multicenter 24 weeks analysis in 115 patients, Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg.
Another case has been reported by Jennifer L Peterson et al in 2012 where the patient underwent an extensive surgical resection, which involved a right anterior and posterior ethmoidectomy, sphenoidotomy, a maxillary antrostomy, and a frontal sinusotomy
with the removal of contents and an inferior turbinate reduction.
Several surgical approaches to the frontal sinus have been described, including frontal sinusotomy
, endoscopic endonasal sinusotomy
, and various combined approaches that involve both endoscopic techniques and frontal sinus trephination (FST).
The patient underwent an endoscopic left modified medial maxillectomy and left frontal sinusotomy
the pterygopalatine or infratemporal part) was reached via a wide maxillary sinusotomy
Recently, Kutluhan et al reported the effect of uncinectomy without sinusotomy
and natural ostial dilation on maxillary sinus ventilation in chronic rhinosinusitis.
A total left ethmoidectomy and maxillary sinusotomy
were carried out, and the mucocele was removed (figure, C).
A right powered endoscopic sphenoid sinusotomy
was performed with a 0[degrees] telescope and a microdebrider (figure, D).
To avoid long-term complications, adequate drainage and sinusotomy
for postoperative follow-up are recommended.
We also performed bilateral revision anterior and posterior ethmoidectomies, a right frontal sinusotomy
, and a reduction of the inferior turbinates.
The mini-osteoplastic frontal sinusotomy
provided direct access and wide exposure to the lesion.
Symptomatic concha bullosa of the superior turbinate with sphenoid sinusitis will respond to a partial superior turbinectomy combined with sphenoid sinusotomy
