Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Diagnostic nasal endoscopy and functional endoscopic sinus surgery are relatively new techniques that have expanded our understanding of sinus physiology and the etiologies of sinus pathology. Diagnosis at an early stage of chronic sinus disease demonstrates that pathological changes are often limited to the osteomeatal complex and the anterior sinus group. Early disease refractory to aggressive medical management usually responds to surgical treatment. Surgery in this setting is most often performed under local anesthesia, without nasal packing, with an immediate improvement in the patient's symptoms, and with minimal risk of complications.
