A bilateral functional endoscopic sinus surgery, bilaterai middle turbinectomy, middle meatus antrostomy, anterior and posterior ethmoidectomy, sphenoidectomy, removal of right maxillary sinus mass, and bilateral inferior turbinate out-fracture were performed.
Other techniques for reducing nasal obstruction symptoms may include complete or partial turbinectomy and septoplasty (straightening of the nasal septum).
A partial middle turbinectomy was performed on the left side because of extensive disease.
The most common surgical procedures included sphenoidectomy, ethmoidectomy, maxillary antrostomy, and middle turbinectomy.
Other techniques for reducing nasal obstruction symptoms may include complete or partial turbinectomy, manual instrumentation, radiofrequency energy or cauterization, oftentimes with septoplasty (straightening of the nasal septum).
Recent studies suggest that MATR is superior to other techniques, such as submucosal electrocautery, (1) traditional submucous turbinectomy, (2) outfracture/ lateralization, (3) and radiofrequency.
Our patient's previous inferior turbinectomies were unlikely to have contributed to the seeding of his left maxillary sinus by an exogenous foreign body, as anatomic narrowing and obstruction rather than widening of the middle meatus is the likely result of turbinectomy.
