Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Chronic sinusitis, in which sinus inflammation persists for at least 3 months, is primarily treated with medication (medical) treatment. However, surgical treatment is applied in cases resistant to drug treatment.

One of the surgical intervention methods is Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS). Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery; It is a minimally deep (invasive) surgical method performed with the aim of opening or expanding the flow paths between the paranasal sinuses and the nasal cavity using nasal endoscopes to restore the impaired ventilation of the sinuses. It is called "functional" because it aims to normalize the function of the sinuses.

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Since the endoscopes are small and handy enough to pass through the nasal cavity, surgical intervention can be performed without the need for incision in the outer part of the face. Although the intervention is usually performed under general anesthesia, local or sedation anesthesia can also be used.

At the end of the operation, tampons, silicone splints with air holes that allow the patient to breathe or liquid absorbent material are placed in the nose, and there are also cases where no placement is made. In addition, when necessary, concha resection / reduction (nasal flesh removal / reduction), nasal cartilage / bone curvature (deviation) surgeries can be performed together with sinusitis surgery.

In Which Conditions is Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Applied?

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery; It is applied in cases of chronic sinusitis where sinus inflammation persists for at least 3 months, in cases where improvement cannot be achieved as a result of drug treatment with antibiotics, antihistamines, decongestants, painkillers and nasal sprays, or in cases where complaints recur after short-term improvement.

Since many factors can cause sinusitis symptoms, the diagnosis of chronic sinusitis should be confirmed by endoscopic imaging and computer tomography and then surgical intervention should be decided.

Are There Complications of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?

Following discharge on the day of the operation or the next day, you can usually return to normal life within 1-2 weeks. However, bloody discharges may be seen during this period, but the nose is not washed, mostly nasal spray, antibiotic drugs and painkillers are used. In the controls to be made by the doctor, the scar / scarring (scar / sclerosis) formed on the inside can be cleaned if deemed necessary. In every period of the healing process, the facial area should be protected from impacts and trauma should be prevented.

How Long Does Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Last?

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery usually takes between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the condition of each patient and the problem.

Are There Risks of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery carries some risks like other surgeries.

The risk of infection, which can be seen in all surgical interventions, also applies to Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. During or after the operation, severe bleeding may occur due to the sensitivity of the nasal and sinus area. Hospitalization or blood transfusion due to excessive blood loss is rare.

If the meninges are damaged during sinus intervention, there is a risk of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) leakage into the nasal cavity. In such a case, infection can be transmitted from the nose and sinuses to the brain. After sinus and nose surgeries, decreased sensitivity to smell can be seen.

Short or long-term temporary visual impairment and double vision cases are encountered after the operation. Temporary numbness in the lips and teeth, swelling or bruising in the eye and mouth area may occur.

What are the Prices of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery?

Since there is a different diagnosis and treatment for each case and situation, it is not possible to give general information about the price of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. First of all, the price will vary according to the level of sinus problem you have and whether you need an intervention in the nasal bone and cartilage structure.

If you are constantly experiencing problems such as pressure, nasal congestion, snoring, voice distortion, cough that increases at night, nasal and/or nasal discharge, smell and taste disturbance, weakness and fever in the part of the head and face that includes the sinus areas, and if your complaints continue for more than 3 months, you can contact us using our contact information.

Melisa Aktürk

In my first meeting with Mr. Elad, I trusted him immediately. He is both a warm-blooded, friendly doctor and explains everything in detail and honestly. I am in the 1st month of my surgery. I had a bruise-free, painless process. I also already love the shape of my nose :) If you want a natural nose that is compatible with your face, Mr. Elad is the right choice. His team and himself are very interested. They do not think that the surgery is over. I can recommend my doctor with peace of mind. I thank him and his team endlessly.

Elif Demirtaş Kanburoğlu

When you go to him for the first interview, you will already take the day for surgery and leave :) a doctor who is so sweet and explains everything to the finest detail. I saw 1 bad comment, I think anyone who knows the deliberate Elad knows that he will not treat the patient with such a style.
