Two common treatments:
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery: During a FESS, the surgery is usually done through the nose using small telescopes viewed on video screens. The navigation through the nasal cavity is done via a computer-aided tool which assists the surgeon to see the pathways clearly. While in surgery, the surgeon uses fine manipulations to remove infected or obstructing bone or tissue so the sinuses may open and improve drainage. Polyps and swollen tissue, as well as diseased secretions, are also removed.
Balloon Sinuplasty: Balloon Sinuplasty is a method where medically-approved balloons are used to dilate narrow sinus passages. It can be effective to relieve certain symptoms of chronic sinusitis which are caused because of bony obstructions. Balloon Sinuplasty enables patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include the removal of bone or tissue from the nose, although sometimes it may be combined with sinus surgery for better results. Balloon Sinuplasty is sometimes performed under local anaesthesia.
