Additional Information

Sinus surgery is performed to remove polyps from the internal portion of the nose. The polyps are caused fro many different reasons, but the many cause is allergies, so the polyps are called allergic nasal polyps. Endoscopic sinus surgery is done when symptoms such as repetitive sinus infections and a decreased sense of smell become chronic in nature for usually longer that three to six months and patients are miserable. The endoscopic sinus surgery involves using telescopes placed on the inside of the nose and opening up natural windows inside the four-paired sinuses; the maxillary, sphenoid, ethmoid and frontal sinuses.

A CAT scan (a three dimensional x ray) of the paranasal sinuses has to be performed in order to guide Dr. Portuese to the sinuses that must be addressed. Most patients have eight sinuses and some only require two sinuses to be opened. The majority of the obstruction occurs in the ostiomeatal complex area where sinuses drain naturally. The sinus drainage pathway is usually quite narrow and polyps from allergies create obstruction and drainage and chronic sinusitis. It is also important to consider medical management of the sinuses which include nasal sprays, antihistamines, decongestants, nasal irrigations, allergy testing, immunotherapy and avoidance of all environmental allergens.
