Are You Tired of Sinus Pain ?

An inflammation or swelling of a tissue that lines the sinuses is called sinusitis. Healthy sinus cavities are filled with air. But when they are blocked and filled with fluid, the growth of germs in the cavities, cause infection.
Causes for Sinus Blockage are common cold, deviated septum, small growths in the nose lining called nasal polyps, and swelling in the nose lining called allergic rhinitis. Sinusitis is divided into acute, sub-acute, chronic, and recurrent.
Initially, sinusitis is treated with antibiotics, nasal decongestant sprays, antihistamines (to control allergic stimulants), topical nasal corticoids, and nasal saline washes. When all the above treatments do not work with the patient, he /she will be advised for sinusitis surgery.

A modernized Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is preferred for recovery within a limited period. Nasal endoscopic surgery is suggested for various conditions relating to the nose as well as other neighboring organs. It is used to diagnose and treat the following conditions:
  • Brain, eyes, and face affected by sinus infections
  • Leakage of brain fluid into the nose
  • Disorders in tear ducts
  • Chronic sinusitis which persists for more than 3 months
Though sinusitis can be treated with non-surgical procedures, surgery is preferred for a permanent solution.

Endoscopic nasal surgery device is a long thin rod with an attached camera on its head that is inserted into the nasal cavity through the natural orifice. This surgery involves lesser nasal packing and milder pain.
It is performed under general or local anesthesia which depends on the duration and severity of the procedure.
Soon after the patient is sedated, the endoscope is inserted through the nostril for viewing the nasal sinuses. Abnormalities or infections are identified by doctors on a live screen through the camera attached on the device. Sometimes, nasal packing may be provided to control bleeding. But in most cases, nasal packing will be provided after surgery which depends on the condition treated. The pain is mild and the period of recovery depends solely on the patients’ health.
