Pak J Med Health Sci Jan ;6(4):827-30.
Objectives: To establish the FESS causes fewer complications and significantly improves the symptoms of patients. Place of study: Department of ENT, Mayo Hospital, Lahore Material & methods: Patients who presented with nasal polyposis were selected from all age groups. A standard questionnaire was prepared. The categorical factors included in the analysis were age, sex, presenting features and mode of admission. Post operative complications were noted and grouped under five major categories i.e., pain, adhesions, recurrence, CSF leakage and intracranial infection Results: Fifty patients from all age groups i.e., 6-65 years of age presenting with nasal polyps were studied and treated endoscopically. Out of 50 cases 13 were female and 37 were male. Nasal obstruction was the commonest. All patients were treated by FESS with one year follow up. Symptoms improved as nasal obstruction 92%, rhinorhea 88%, post nasal drip 88% and snoring 90%. Conclusion: The study showed good results using functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
