Middle meatal antrostomy (MMA) provides limited access to the anteromedial and inferior aspect of the maxillary sinus (MS) often resulting in residual disease and inflammatory burden. Newer extended procedures, such as mega-antrostomy (Mega-A) and extended modified mega-antrostomy (EMMA), have been developed to address this limitation. This study assesses the effect of varying extent of MS surgery on irrigation penetration and access of instrumentation.

Some anatomic variations may interfere with proper airflow in the maxillary sinus and predispose to maxillary sinus pathologies. It was also reported that as a result of the transport of microorganism...
Nasal irrigation is a cornerstone of treatment for chronic rhinosinusitis. The purpose of this study was to quantify irrigation penetration to the sinuses following balloon sinuplasty and functional e...
A strategic surgical approach is necessary for patients who cannot undergo maxillary sinus augmentation due to a large perforation of the sinus membrane as a result of complex sinus septa. The techniq...
We have encountered a rare case in which the subject underwent maxillary sinus floor elevation at another hospital, and a screw to fix the grafted bone substitute was forced into the maxillary sinus a...
To evaluate the healing after sinus floor augmentation at antrostomies prepared with either drills or a sonic instrument.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of maxillary sinus saline irrigation in conjunction with systemic antibiotic therapy versus systemic antibiotic therapy alone in ...

The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of endoscopic pre lacrimal recess approach, canine fossa approach and middle meatal antrostomy approach regarding: 1. Assessment of the ...
The study aims to evaluate the clinical and radiological behavior, the histological and morphometrical components, the expression of proteins related to bone formation, and the analysis of...
the purpose of the study is to look for differences in dimensional variations of augmented maxillary sinuses with or without the placement of a collagen membrane subjacent the sinus mucosa...
The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.
Tumors or cancer of the MAXILLARY SINUS. They represent the majority of paranasal neoplasms.
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the MAXILLARY SINUS. In many cases, it is caused by an infection of the bacteria HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE; STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE; or STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.
One of a pair of irregularly shaped bones that form the upper jaw. A maxillary bone provides tooth sockets for the superior teeth, forms part of the ORBIT, and contains the MAXILLARY SINUS.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
