Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

sinusitis is a sinus infection with an infectious cause that manifests itself with headache, pressure on the eyes, nose, cheek area, or any part of the head. A patient with a sinus infection may present with cough, fever and bad breath.
Sinus infections are classified into two major categories
  • acute (less than a few weeks)
  • chronic (more than three months)

Anatomy of the sinuses
The human body has two pairs of respiratory sinuses, which have the role of warming and moisturizing the respiratory air with the weight of the skull being lightened. In addition, it is also bumpy as well as kicks. Other functions of the sinuses are to influence sound quality.
  • - Frontal sinus (in front of forehead)
  • - Maxilla sinus (on the back of the maxilla)
  • - Atomoid sinus (between eyes)
  • - Sphenoid sinus (behind eyes)

Sinusitis Treatment
It is recommended to treat all bacterial sinusitis because of the potential for complications.
General treatment in the treatment of sinusitis
The treatment is based on reducing swelling, eradicating the infection, draining discharge and leaving a crater open to keep the sinuses open.
Surgical treatment of sinusitis
The treatment is based on opening the closed sinuses, removing irreversible tissue and removing the infection. The result is, the ability to enter medicines into the sinuses and the ability to change inflamed mucous to normal mucus.
Sinus surgery is called FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery). This is done through the endoscope (a device that allows viewing through the sinuses). The new surgical procedure removes the disease without an incision on the face.
