To overcome the numerous disadvantages of the Caldwell-Luc operation, a new surgical approach for the treatment of chronic antritis has been devised. A middle meatal antrostomy is made, and this respects the anatomy, physiology and patho-physiology of the sinus, with minimal trauma to the area. The technique is described in detail and its advantages are discussed.
