What is Endoscopic Sinus surgery?
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is a surgical procedure to remove unhealthy sinus tissue from the drainage channels, which helps in making way for the drainage of infected material from the sinus cavities. The surgery is mostly performed using endoscopic methods for improved and accurate view. Endoscopic nasal sinus surgery is done without external incisions and therefore there is very little bleeding, swelling and discomfort, which enables a fast recovery. Endoscopic sinus surgery does not damage healthy tissues, requires less time and yields good results. Nasal sinus surgery requires post-operative care, therefore follow-up and aftercare should be given essential attention.

How is Endoscopic Sinus Surgery performed?

  • A nasal endoscope is inserted through the nostrils into the nasal cavity. This allows the doctor to view the inside of the nose and sinuses.
  • The middle turbinate is located to identify and remove the uncinate process.
  • The ethmoid air cells are opened to improve ventilation, leaving the bone with the covering of mucous membrane.
  • Any blockage in the ostium, situated close to the jaw is removed with a meatal antrostomy.
  • The surgery helps to improve the ventilation of the sinuses by making the osteomeatal complex function better.

How to prepare for the Endoscopic Sinus surgery?
  • The patient’s medical history is reviewed by the doctor.
  • An ENT specialist will conduct diagnostic examination on the patient, which may involve fiberoptic endoscopy and CT scan.
  • The patient needs to avoid taking certain medication that may worsen bleeding. This includes herbs and vitamins.
  • The patient may be required to take antibiotics and steroids to reduce swelling.
  • Patients who smoke are advised to stop or reduce smoking to help in recovery.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has fever or any illness before the surgery.
