Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)
Sinus surgery encompasses a range of surgical interventions designed to address the persistent ailment known as chronic sinusitis or other maladies afflicting the sinus cavities.
Chronic sinusitis is marked by the persistent inflammation and infection of the sinus passages, giving rise to distressing symptoms including nasal congestion, facial discomfort, headaches, and a diminished capacity for olfaction.
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is widely recognized as the prevailing approach to sinus surgery. This intricate procedure employs an endoscope, a slender optical instrument, which is gently introduced into the nasal passages. Through this endoscope, the surgeon obtains a clear visual perspective of the sinuses, allowing for the precise removal of any impediments or afflicted tissue.
Typically, sinus surgery becomes a consideration when conventional treatments, such as saline rinses and corticosteroid sprays, have yielded inadequate results. The determination to proceed with surgical intervention is a collaborative decision made in consultation with an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialist, contingent upon an assessment of the condition’s gravity and its discernible impact on the patient’s overall quality of life.
Other Sinus Surgeries
In the realm of sinus interventions, apart from Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, various other surgical procedures are available to address sinus-related concerns, tailored to the specific condition and root cause.
Balloon Sinuplasty: This technique entails the insertion of a diminutive, pliable balloon catheter into the sinus passages, subsequently inflating it to expand obstructed or constricted sinus apertures. Notably, it serves as a less invasive alternative to conventional surgery and can be conveniently conducted on an outpatient basis.
Ethmoidectomy: In scenarios where the ethmoid sinuses are notably afflicted, an ethmoidectomy may be warranted. This surgical intervention entails the meticulous removal of compromised tissue and the expansion of ethmoid sinuses to enhance drainage functionality.
Frontal Sinus Surgery: In cases where the frontal sinuses are affected, surgical intervention becomes imperative to alleviate obstructions or address persistent inflammation.
