Surgery For Sinusitis?
Doctor night. I want to ask. Is sinusitis surgery including major surgery or minor surgery.? Thanks for the answer doctor. Good night.
Sinusitis is a medical term that describes inflammation of the inner lining of the cavities found in the facial and nasal structures, namely the sinus cavities. This sinus cavity is lined by a kind of mucous membrane, which serves to catch dirt, so as not to infect the respiratory tract. The dirt that is trapped in this mucus will then go along with the mucus to be flowed through the drainage process that ends in the throat. This mucus can be swallowed and destroyed by stomach acid, or it can be coughed up. If for one reason or another the drainage process is disrupted, for example by allergies that cause the ducts to swell, inflammation or sinusitis can occur. Sinusitis is then if it occurs repeatedly will usually be treated with an operative procedure in the form of FESS or Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, which is a procedure that uses modern technology to create a kind of hole that essentially enlarges the cavity for the drainage flow. This operation is fairly minimally invasive, and is classified as a small-medium operation, depending on the level of difficulty at the time the operation is performed. More about this you can consult with your ENT doctor. Here we attach an article about sinusitis. May be useful.
