What is Functional Endoscopic Sinus surgery?

Functional Endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a surgical treatment of sinusitis and nasal polyps, chronic sinus problems by removal of blockages. The goal of sinus surgery is to open sinuses that are blocked by inflammation and keep healthy tissue so that your nose and sinuses can function normally.

 

Functional Endoscopic Sinus surgery signs include:

  • Chronic or recurrent sinusitis
  • Choanal atresia repair.
  • Ainonasal polyposis
  • Antrochoanal polyps
  • Paranasal sinus
  • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak closure.
  • Choanal atresia repair.
  • Foreign body removal.
  • Epistaxis control.

 

Functional Endoscopic Sinus surgery risk factor includes:-

  • Risks of anaesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Numbness 
  • Temporary dizziness
  • Loss of the sense smell
  • Facial swelling or bruising

 

  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Functional Endoscopic Sinus surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Functional Endoscopic Sinus surgery takes 30 to 60 minutes by giving local or general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision: Before Sinus surgery was performed through external incisions, but now, the surgery is generally performed by using fine endoscopes and high-definition cameras inserted through the nostril to obtain an excellent view. The surgeon will remove the inflamed tissue that is abnormal or obstructive. Endoscopic sinus surgery is typically done with minimal nasal packing, mild pain, and short recovery times.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: Endoscopic sinus surgery is typically done by endoscopes through the nose, without the face or mouth incisions.

Step 4 –The results: Success rate depends on the patient, surgeon experience, but it’s found normally between 85 to 98%.  It’s generally safe surgery and patients get great relief after the procedure.

The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications and managing. Nasal packing will be removed after 2 to 3 days of surgery.   The patients should advise not to blow their nose during first 48 hours after surgery. Physical activity is avoided for two weeks, hot food and drinks should be avoided.

Success rate depends on patient, surgeon experience, but it’s found normally between 85 to 98%.  It’s generally safe surgery and patients get great relief after the procedure.

 

  • Are you a board-certified surgeon?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform these types of surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What are the risk factors for my treatment?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend? Why?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of my treatment surgery?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
  • Is endoscopic sinus surgery painful?
  • How long does it take time to recover from a sinus surgery?
  • Can you fly after endoscopic sinus surgery?
  • How long do I have to sleep elevated after sinus surgery?
  • Do nasal polyps come back after surgery?
  • Which nasal spray is best for nasal polyps?
  • How long does it take nasal packing to dissolve?
