FESS Surgery in Kozhikode

FESS, or Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, is a minimally invasive surgery in which the surgeon uses nasal endoscopes to increase the size of the nasal drainage pathways of the paranasal sinuses to improve sinus ventilation. It is the most effective treatment for sinusitis.
Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissue lining of the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are pneumatic, i.e., they are filled with air and responsible for humidifying and warming the inspired air. On the other hand, if sinuses are infected, they are filled with mucus and bacteria, which causes nasal congestion, inflammation, etc., which makes breathing difficult.
When sinuses are too congested and are not responding to medicines, then surgical intervention becomes necessary to drain the sinuses and make breathing easier. If you have severe sinusitis and want to get long-term relief from your symptoms, book an appointment with the best ENT specialists in Kozhikode for sinusitis treatment near you.

Fess Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnostic procedures required for sinusitis treatment

One of the most important criteria for diagnosing sinusitis is a medical history and physical examination. Your doctor will collect a detailed medical history, along with your symptoms, their severity, duration, recurrence, etc., to determine whether you have acute or chronic sinusitis.

Other diagnostic tests that help diagnose the presence and severity of sinusitis are:

  • Imaging tests: CTs and MRIs help examine the details of the sinuses and the nasal area for inflammation, nasal polyps, tumors, infection, etc.
  • Endoscopy:A diagnostic endoscopy involves the insertion of a long thin, flexible fiber-optic light to visualize the sinuses for the diagnosis of nasal problems like deviated nasal septum, nasal polyps, nasal tumors, etc.
  • Allergy test: In addition to infection, another condition that may be triggering recurrent sinusitis is an allergy. A skin allergy test is a safe, quick and easy way to detect if there is an allergen behind the patient’s condition.
  • Tissue swab/culture:Tissue cultures are very important for the diagnosis and treatment of sinusitis. They help determine the causing bacteria/fungi responsible for sinusitis so that appropriate medication can be prescribed.

Treatments for chronic sinusitis in Kozhikode

  • Medical management: Based on the results of the diagnostic tests, your ENT doctor will prescribe you medicines to help manage and reduce your symptoms. Different medicines that can help sinusitis patients are nasal corticosteroids, nasal sprays, oral or injected corticosteroids, allergy medications, antibiotics, antifungals, etc.
  • Surgery: Functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS surgery, is a common and effective treatment for chronic sinus infections. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon uses a magnifying endoscope to remove the infected tissues in the sinuses. The main goals of FESS surgery are to flush out the infected material and open block air passages in the nose while preserving enough healthy tissue so that sinuses can function normally.

In contrast to conventional surgery, FESS is less invasive and promises better recovery with minimal scarring. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. The surgical instruments are inserted through the nose to preserve aesthetic appearance. The infected sinuses are located, drained and then washed using a saline solution. After all the infected tissue is removed, the incisions are closed.

If you are suffering from either acute or chronic sinusitis, you should consult the best ENT specialist near you for appropriate treatment. Pristyn Care is aligned with the best ENT doctors in Kozhikode to provide the best treatment to all patients.

Frequently Asked Question

When should one consult an ENT specialist for sinus surgery in Kozhikode?

You should consult an ENT specialist for sinus surgery if you have chronic sinusitis and you are getting adequate relief from conservative treatments.

Is FESS surgery in Kozhikode covered under insurance?

Yes, most major insurance companies cover sinus surgery so it is very likely that your surgery will be covered by insurance but you should confirm this with your insurance provider if you are unsure about your policy terms.

What are the complications of FESS?

If not performed properly, FESS can cause further complications such as failure to resolve sinus issues, hemorrhage, chronic nasal drainage, pain, empty nose syndrome, CSF leakage, etc.

Why is endoscopic sinus surgery called functional?

It is called functional as the main goal of the surgery is to restore sinus ventilation and normal function of the sinuses.

What are the problems of delaying FESS surgery for sinusitis relief?

If you delay sinus surgery, sinus infections can spread to nearby organs and cause severe eye, ear or brain infections. Sinusitis can also reduce or distort the sense of smell over a long period of time.

What lifestyle changes can I make to prevent the recurrence of sinusitis?

10 tips you can follow to avoid the recurrence of sinus infections are:

  • Avoid upper respiratory infections.
  • Do not have physical contact with people who have colds or other infections.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, especially before meals.
  • If you have allergies then try to keep those under control and avoid contact with your allergens as much as possible.
  • Avoid contact with tobacco smoke and other air pollutants, even second-hand smoke.
  • If you feel that the air in your home is dry, then use a humidifier. Make sure that your humidifier is Book of any dirt or mold by regularly cleaning it.
  • Regularly wash/irrigate your sinuses using a neti pot or other similar devices.
  • Avoid antibiotics as they may harm the natural bacterial flora that exists in the nasal cavity. If you are taking any antibiotics, then take oral probiotics to replenish this flora.
  • If you want to swim, then swim in saltwater pools instead of chlorinated pools as they are less irritating to nasal sinuses.
  • Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle to ensure you have a strong immune system that can fight all types of infections.

What happens if sinuses are not drained surgically for chronic sinusitis patients?

If left untreated, chronic sinusitis can cause serious complications.

  • Due to the close proximity, sinus infections can easily spread to the eyes and lead to redness, swelling, and reduced vision, known as orbital cellulitis. In severe cases, it may even lead to blindness.
  • If sinus infections spread to the brain, it can lead to a brain abscess or meningitis, which can be life-threatening.
  • Chronic sinusitis can cause hyposmia, or reduced sense of smell, in addition to nasal obstruction and olfactory nerve inflammation. This can eventually turn to anosmia, i.e., complete loss of sense of smell.
  • A paranasal mucocele can be formed which can lead to the obstruction of sinus drainage.
  • Cavernous sinus thrombosis is the development of a blood clot in the cavernous sinuses and can be life-threatening.
