Instruments UsedBalloon Catheter System and Camera EndoscopesForceps, Curettes, Biting Type Instruments and Camera Endoscopes
Method of "Opening" Up the Sinus CavitiesBalloon InflationTissue and Bone Removal
Best PatientSinus disease (no masses) involving the frontal and sphenoid sinus cavities. In some select patients, the maxillary sinus as well. No tissue sample is able to be obtained with this method.Sinus disease involving any of the sinus cavities. Able to obtain tissue samples for pathologic analysis to see if any cancer or worrisome tumor characteristics are present.
Sinus Cavities that can be AddresedFrontal sinus, sphenoid sinus, and maxillary sinus cavities. The ethmoid sinus cavities can NOT be addressed with this technique.All sinus cavities can be addressed.
Workup for Surgical Consideration
  • CT Scan
  • Allergy Evaluation
  • Medication Failure
  • CT Scan
  • Allergy Evaluation
  • Medication Failure

Patients should be aware that a "hybrid" type of sinus surgery can be performed whereby the approach may be via balloon sinuplasty technique followed by a more traditional approach with tissue removal if biopsies required. If the ethmoid sinuses need to be addressed, a traditional approach can be used for this sinus cavity whereby the other sinus cavities (frontals, sphenoids, and maxillaries) can be addressed by balloon sinuplasty.

Antrolith in the maxillary sinus: an unusual complication of endoscopic sinus surgery

Published online: 4 June 2010

Antrolith of the paranasal sinuses are rare entity which are usually asymptomatic, caused by calcification of a nidus and are detected incidentally on radiological examinations. We report a case which presented to us with features of pansinusitis six months after endoscopic sinus surgery. Radiological examination revealed a discrete bony density in the maxillary sinus blocking the ostiomeatal complex. The bony mass was removed endoscopically from the maxillary sinus with drainage of discharge and debris from the sinuses. Histopathological examination revealed an antrolith with bony nidus and calcium deposited around it. We present the imaging and review the present world literature on this rare complication of endoscopic sinus surgery.

Malleus handle: determinant of success in ossiculoplasty

Received 19 November 2008 published online 18 May 2009.


The purpose of this study is to identify prognostic factors affecting outcome in ossicular chain reconstruction (OCR).
Study design and setting

This study is a retrospective case series of electronic database at an academic institution.

Materials and methods

We reviewed 209 cases of chronic supportive otitis media performed from January 2000 through December 2007 and collected demographic, clinical, audiologic, and outcome information. Univariate analyses of group differences in terms of postoperative air-bone gap (ABG) changes were evaluated by analysis of variance. Multiple regression analyses were used to examine the relationship between postoperative ABG and the independent variables.


There were 105 cases of OCR the met the inclusion criteria (44 primary and 61 revision tympanoplasties), with an average follow-up of 19 months. The diagnoses were chronic suppurative otitis media without cholesteatoma in 36 cases and cholesteatoma in 69 cases. The mean preoperative ABG was 34 ± 15 dB, and the mean postoperative ABG was 20 ± 14 dB (P <>


Favorable prognostic factors in OCR include smaller preoperative ABG and the presence of an intact malleus handle.
