Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) treats persistent sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses). The surgeon puts a narrow, flexible, tube-like telescopic camera into the patient’s nose and uses special instruments to unblock the sinuses (Bupa).

This book is a comprehensive guide to FESS for ENT trainees and specialists. Beginning with an introduction to the nasal wall and endoscopic surgical anatomy, the following chapters examine sinus surgery for different associated disorders. The final sections describe postoperative care, nasal packing material and surgical complications.

This invaluable guide includes more than 270 clinical images, illustrations and tables to enhance learning.
