It is the inflammation of the nose and paranasal sinuses. It is either acute rhinosinusitis when inflammation lasts for up to 4 weeks, or chronic when it persists for at least 12 weeks.
Surgery is the main component in the management of chronic rhinosinusitis. Endoscopic sinus surgery is indicated for a disease that is unresponsive to medical treatment. The goal of surgery is to facilitate the natural drainage of the sinuses, eradicate the infection, and remove nasal polyps.
