What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis or sinus infection causes inflammation when sinuses that are behind the nasal cavity get infected. They can also cause swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. Sinuses are part of the human anatomy and when they are healthy, they are filled with air. If somehow they get blocked, the natural drainage is affected. The sinuses can grow pathogens and cause an infection. The sinus cavity is divided into four paired spaces and the same are joined by narrow canals. The natural function of the sinuses is to make thin mucus and help drain out the same from the nose to keep the airway free of infection. See, the drainage is also a filtration system of the nose. The sinus infection can be of two types. It can be acute, which lasts for 5 to 6 days and resolves on its own or chronic sinusitis which is a long-lasting sinus infection.

    Treatment of Sinus Surgery


    An expert ENT doctor can help you figure out if you have sinusitis or something else. Also, the doctor can identify the reason for sinus infection. The ENT specialist can ask questions to discuss how long you’ve had sinus symptoms. The doctor can see if the symptoms are getting worse or improving. If you are experiencing symptoms from the last 10 days and they’re not getting worse, you might have a viral infection. It will go away on its own with time. The doctor may suggest over-the-counter treatments, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen or nasal decongestants. If you begin to use nasal decongestants, you have to read the directions carefully.

    Surgical Treatment of Sinus Infection

    When medicinal treatment such as antibiotics, nasal decongestant, and nasal steroids no longer treat sinusitis, sinus surgery is the best option for the patient. Earlier, surgical sinus treatment involved an open incision that required bone and tissue removal to open obstructed sinus passageways. Now, advanced sinus surgery at Pristyn Care can be completed through the nostrils, leaving no scar and making recovery much easier for the patient. Also, a surgical procedure performed by advanced equipment, Microdebrider heals faster and can be performed on an out-patient basis. During sinus surgery, obstructed sinus passageways are re-opened, restoring normal sinus drainage and function. The best & most reliable sinus cure procedure uses the latest medical devices that are regulated by the USFDA. The patients feel free of the condition and can go home within 24 hours. After 2-3 days of surgical treatment, the patient can continue his routine.

    Frequently   Asked Questions

    Sinusitis is cured permanently once the underlying cause triggering the infection is cured. For instance, if sinusitis occurs due to inflammation of sinuses, then it is best to undergo a FESS surgery.

    You can use salt water rinses beginning 1 to 2 days after surgery. Also, an ENT doctor may recommend that you use a nasal steroid spray 15-30 minutes after using the salt-water rinse.

    The FESS surgery takes about an hour to complete. If you have more queries, then call us or visit us.

    Usually, sinusitis caused due to an infection clears on its own within 2 to 3 weeks. In case it is chronic, it is likely to stay for longer periods of time.

    If you leave chronic sinusitis for long, it can spread to the brain and possibly cause death.

    There are some remedies that can help unclog the nose and sinuses such as inhaling steam, using a nasal solution, placing a warm towel on the forehead, etc. You can also use decongestants and nasal sprays.

    Depending on the severity of the surgery, recovery may take a few days. With modern daycare sinus surgery, a patient may take 2 - 3 days to begin his normal life.

    Put some extra pillows under the head so that you sleep at a 45-degree angle when having a stuffy nose.

    What are the different types of sinusitis?

    Sinusitis can be classified into different categories such as viral sinusitis, bacterial sinusitis, allergic sinusitis, and chronic sinusitis.

    Viral sinusitis

    If a patient is experiencing cold-like symptoms including runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, nasal congestion, and coughing, then he might have viral sinusitis. Besides, in the case of viral sinusitis, mucus may be clear, or slightly coloured. Antibiotics do not work against viral infection, so the best treatment is to get rid of the symptoms of sinusitis by getting as much rest as possible. A patient can consume fluids, use saline nasal sprays, and take over-the-counter pain relievers and oral decongestants. In general, sinusitis caused by a virus is cured in 7-10 days.

    Bacterial sinusitis

    If a patient has bacterial sinusitis, he may experience thick nasal discharge, swollen nasal passages, and dripping mucus from the back of the throat. Some patients with bacterial sinusitis also experience facial pain and pressure. These patients should immediately consult a doctor. The ENT doctor or sinus specialist may prescribe amoxicillin. Most patients with acute bacterial sinusitis respond to antibiotics with symptoms resolving in 10-14 days.

    Allergic sinusitis

    Allergic sinusitis can cause inflammation that leads to nasal congestion and swelling of the mucus membranes. The mucus can block normal sinus drainage. In most cases, allergic sinusitis leads to chronic sinusitis as symptoms are seasonal but may last for a year. A patient of allergic sinus infection complains about:

    • Sneezing
    • Itchy nose, throat, or eyes
    • Nasal congestion
    • Postnasal drip
    • Runny (clear mucus) nose

    Allergic sinusitis can be treated with antihistamines. A person can avoid allergic triggers, and, in some cases, allergy shots.

    Chronic sinusitis

    Chronic sinusitis generally causes symptoms that last for months. Nasal congestion and post-nasal drainage, cough during the night or morning are common symptoms. A patient who has nasal polyps is more susceptible to this type of infection.

    When to see an ENT specialist for sinusitis?

    If your symptoms last for more than 7-10 days and the symptoms do not respond to antibiotics or other remedies, or if you have recurrent episodes of sinusitis, you need to consult with an ENT specialist.

    In many cases, chronic sinusitis can result in anatomical abnormalities of the nose. Even in that case, the person may need to visit an ENT specialist. A trained and expert ENT specialist can identify the issue and provide necessary treatment to prevent possibilities of future episodes of sinusitis.

    What happens during sinus surgery or FESS?

    Advanced sinus surgery or FESS is considered one of the most common and effective surgical treatment for chronic sinus. In FESS, the ENT surgeon uses a magnifying endoscope to surgically remove the affected sinus tissue or the bone. The goal of FESS is to surgically flush out the infected tissue, open up the blocked sinus passage and allow the healthy tissues to function well and normal.

    When the affected tissues are removed, the surgeon will place a temporary nasal packing in your nose to support the sinus passage which has been opened after the surgery. By the end of the FESS surgery, the ENT surgeon may also use a hydrodebrider system to rinse the sinuses and help wash away the bacteria causing the sinus infections.

    FESS surgery is performed as a daycare procedure. The recovery after the surgery depends on the overall health condition of the patient and the severity of the sinusitis. Although there are no major risks and complications after the FESS surgery, the patient may experience some pain and discomfort for the next few days. The patient should take rest for the next 2-3 days after the surgery and should not step out in pollution or dust.

    Is FESS painful?

    FESS is a very simple surgery and causes no pain as such. However, the pain quotient is different for every patient. Most patients can tolerate the pain and require no pain medicines or antibiotics. In case there are any potential complications, the doctor will let you know before this surgery.

    The nose may remain sore and swollen for a day or two after the surgery. This may make breathing a little difficult for a week or so. It is rare for facial bruising or swelling to occur after FESS surgery.

    The patient may experience pain while removing the nasal packing. This happens because the fluids and the tissues inside the nose can stick during the healing process after the surgery.
