What is the optimal maxillary antrostomy size during sinus surgery?

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015 Feb;23(1):34-8

Department of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Purpose Of Review: To review all the journal articles relevant to chronic maxillary sinusitis in order to discuss the optimal size of maxillary antrostomy during endoscopic sinus surgery.

Recent Findings: Although endoscopic maxillary antrostomy is a longstanding and frequently performed procedure, there is limited evidence about the optimal size of the antrostomy. Commonly employed surgical options include dilation via balloon sinuplasty, traditional antrostomy with uncinectomy using forceps and powered microdebriders, enlargement of the natural ostium, and the mega-antrostomy or modified medial maxillectomy.

Osmotic self-expanding dilation technology for treatment of sinusitis: the Vent-Os sinus dilation system.

Expert Rev Med Devices 2015 Jan 3;12(1):19-24. Epub 2014 Dec 3.

Department of Otolaryngology, St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, 736 Cambridge Street SMC-8, Brighton, MA, 02135, USA.

The Vent-Os Sinus Dilation System is an osmotically driven device that provides a means to access the sinus space and to dilate the maxillary sinus ostia and associated spaces in adults for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Unlike balloon dilation devices that use rapid, high-pressure inflation, this self-expanding device is designed to gently and gradually open the maxillary ostia. The procedure can be safely and easily completed in-office with minimal anesthetics and analgesics on board. Read More

The impact of balloon catheter dilation on frequency of sinus surgery in the United States.

Med Devices (Auckl) 2014 28;7:83-9. Epub 2014 Apr 28.

Medical Affairs, Acclarent Inc., a Johnson & Johnson Company, Menlo Park, CA, USA ; Cleveland Nasal-Sinus and Sleep Center, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Purpose: Endoscopic sinus surgery for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) unresponsive to medical therapy has traditionally been performed under general anesthesia and in the operating room. Balloons for catheter dilation of paranasal sinuses were introduced in 2005, allowing sinus surgery to be safely performed either in the operating room or the office care setting, under local anesthesia. This change in care setting has raised concerns of overuse or expanded indications for sinus surgery. Read More

Standing equine sinus surgery.

Vet Clin North Am Equine Pract 2014 Apr 31;30(1):45-62. Epub 2014 Jan 31.

Dick Vet Equine Hospital, Easter Bush Vet Centre, University of Edinburgh, Roslin, Midlothian EH25 9RG, UK.

Trephination of the equine sinuses is a common surgical procedure in sedated standing horses. Standing sinus flap surgery has become increasingly popular in equine referral hospitals and offers several advantages over sinusotomy performed under general anesthesia, including reduced patient-associated risks and costs; less intraoperative hemorrhage, allowing better visualization of the operative site; and allows surgeons to take their time. Other minimally invasive surgical procedures include sinoscopic surgery, balloon sinuplasty, and transnasal laser sinonasal fenestration. Read More

Orbital complication of balloon sinuplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2014 Mar;25(2):499-501

From the *Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Bozok University School of Medicine, Yozgat, and †Department of Ophthalmology, Kayseri Training and Research Hospital, Kayseri, Turkey.

Balloon sinuplasty (BS) is a relatively new conservative approach, first licensed for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis in 2006. The philosophy of the technique is to improve impaired sinus drainage by enlarging stenosed or obstructed natural sinus ostiums. The recent improvements in balloon sinuplasty made virtually all paranasal sinus ostiums to be safely accessible with this technique. Read More
