Lightbulb Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Sinuses Causes - Endoscopic Sinus Surgery - How to Get Relieved After Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Quote:Introduction: Endoscopic sinus surgery is a surgery done to get rid of the blockages in the sinus. This procedure is done to remove the air filled in some places in the bones of the skull. Endoscopic sinus surgery is also known as endoscopy or sinoscopy procedure. The blocks in the sinus is the root cause for sinusitis, as result there is inflammation in the sinuses, which in turn causes severe pain and difficulty in breathing.

What Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Does:
It eases nasal blockagesIt eases facial painHelps in improving the breathingCan smell and taste food betterThe surgery helps in correcting the sinusitis, deviated septum, polyps and tumors. Most patients that underwent this procedure have reported that there was considerable relief from the sufferings. Endoscopic sinus surgery is based on the fiberoptic technology. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Sinusitis. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Sinusitis.

The endoscopic surgery procedure, a slim, illuminated device, which is known as endoscope, is put into the nose by the doctor and he/she views through the eye piece fitted to it. An endoscope resembles a telescope and is fitted with a wide angle camera lens. The light beam travels through various parts of the nose as well as the sinuses and this enables the doctor to see where exactly the blockages are.
  • The endoscopic sinus surgery is done through the anterior naris and so the conventional method of cutting the skin is not necessary.
  • Due to this patients are not required to stay at the hospital even overnight.
  • With the advent of the endoscopic sinus surgery the treatment and diagnoses of sinusitis has become very easy.
  • It is considered as the most modern development in the ears, nose, and throat field of medicine.
  • Writing an article on Sinuses was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on.
  • This is because Sinuses are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

Patients Who Underwent this Surgery Have Reported that Pain is Very Minimal
However, some may feel tired and should refrain from doing hard work at least for a couple of weeks. If you had been suffering from severe inflammation then it would take several months to completely get cured even after the surgery. Nasal irrigation and salt water sprays are also recommended for some. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Sinus Infection that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

As part of our efforts to chronicle the experiences of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Swollen sinus treatment Success' story.

This is Leading Edge Stuff
Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments. I decided to try this approach after everything else failed. I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Chronic Sinusitis here. Everything here is true and up to the mark!

Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification. Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery' Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Sinus Disease. Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Sinus Disease!

Asked Carlton in a Follow-Up Email If He Had Tested Positive for Fungi in Previous
Allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt: Even the beginner will get to learn more about Sinusitis Treatment after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it.

I'll Let You Know How It Goes, but So Far, I Feel Much Better
Carlton' Huge Implications in the Study Results There are huge implications in this study for those who suffer from recurring sinus infection. This work could lead to treatments that treat the root cause of the problem for the first time.

Hopefully the follow-on work of the Mayo Clinic and University of Buffalo will identify antifungal treatments that can finally go after the root cause of recurring sinus infection. Sinus sufferers should be aware of these research efforts and be ready to discuss these findings with their ENT specialists. Maybe serious help is finally on the way. Suppressing our knowledge on Sinus Infection is not our intention here. In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Sinus Infection after reading this!

Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done:


Acute Rhinosinusitis (ARS): Clinical Guidelines | Epomedicine
[Image: acute-sinusitis12.jpeg]
  • Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
  • Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.
  • Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Sinusitis Treatment.
  • We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both Negative
The Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people with chronic sinusitis do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution. This is a dependable source of information on Sinus Treatment. All that has to be done to verify its authenticity is to read it!
  • He pointed out a study conducted by the Mayo clinic and the University of Buffalo addressing the issue of recurring sinus infection.
  • It states that "chronic sinusitis is an immune disorder caused by fungus."

'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.'

Allergies, Sinus Dizziness are Associated With Sinus Problems
The symptoms of these allergies are very common such as runny nose, excessive sneezing, sore throat, watery eyes, bad breath and itching nose. Sinuses are the hollow cavities in the facial bones. Inflammation of the sinuses is known as sinusitis. It is caused by viral infection or due to fungus or mold in the sinuses. Dizziness is also caused by infection but do not show any symptoms. This condition can be cured within two weeks with proper treatment.
  • Causes Some irritants cause allergies and infection in the nasal channels and blockage of the drainage of sinus fluid.
  • Some structural abnormalities within the nasal passages may also be responsible for blocking of the drainage system.
  • The deviated septum the structure dividing the nasal passage into two sides is an example.
  • Low immune function can also lead to infections of the nasal channels.
  • Infections like HIV/AIDS or gastroesophagal reflux disease and non-allergic rhinitis.
  • We were actually wondering how to get about to writing about Sinusitis Infection.
  • However once we started writing, the words just seemed to flow continuously!
  • Symptoms Usual symptoms found in the patients suffering from allergies, sinus dizziness are facial pain and colored nasal discharge.
  • Nasal congestion and loss of taste or smell are found in most of the cases.
  • Fever, headache early in the morning, ear pressure, bad breath and fatigue are reported by some others.
  • The patients feel weak and fatigued all the time.
  • Some of the symptoms lead to dizziness.
  • Prevention Strengthening the immune system is the best way to prevent sinusitis infection.
  • Healthy food and supplements can reduce the probability of the occurrence of sinus infection and the associated dizziness.
  • Equipment like proper air conditioning can also lessen the severity of infection providing the right temperature.
  • Intake of foods with high Vitamin C content like grapes, cabbage, lemon, broccoli, strawberries and raspberries are natural decongestants.
  • Do not judge a book by its cover; so don't just scan through this matter on Sinus Infection. read it thoroughly to judge its value and importance.
  • Treatment The best treatments and medication are available to combat the allergies and infection over the counter.
  • The other common way is through antibiotics like amoxicillin etc.
  • Mostly allergies sinus dizziness will get better within 10 to 14 days of taking antibiotics.
  • Chronic patients may need longer courses.
  • The symptoms of allergies sinus dizziness can be reduced by natural irrigation process of the sinus.
  • It is a yogic practice called 'Neti'.
  • This has positive effects beyond the health of the nasal irrigation system.
  • It is rather interesting to note that people like reading about Inflammation Sinuses if they are presented in an easy and clear way.
  • The presentation of an article too is important for one to entice people to read it! Wink
  • Have you ever felt like your head is going to explode?
  • Felt intense pressure behind your eyes making it next to impossible to concentrate.
  • Had headaches, pain in the upper jaws, fever, coughs and runny nose?
  • If your answer is yes, then you could be suffering from Sinus infection.

According to Mark Cichocki, our sinuses are air pockets located inside the bones in the skull. They are located to either side of the nose (maxillary), behind and in between the eyes (ethmoid), in the forehead (frontal), and there is one much further back in the head (sphenoid). These spaces contain mucus that drains by way of small pin holes in the sinuses. When these sinuses grow swollen and prevents the proper drain of mucus, sinusitis is the result. Sinusitis attacks may last until 12 weeks or more depending on the gravity of the infection. Unlike colds which is viral, sinusitis may sometimes be caused by bacteria. The accumulated mucus from the plugged sinuses serves as the breeding ground for these microorganisms. At least 30% of the population suffers from sinusitis each year. There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Sinus projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you. Big Grin.

Having a strong constitution and immune system is our best defense against diseases like this and it is of outmost importance to know the factors that can weaken it. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Sinus Infections. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Sinus Infections.

Sinusitis can be treated with the right dose of antibiotics usually from fourteen to twenty-one days of continued medication. After that, another week is devoted to continued intake of the antibiotics even after the symptoms have disappeared. However, immediate measures have to taken if the medication causes negative effects. A change in medicine can be done. Sinusitis that have come to the chronic stage may sometimes be caused not by bacteria but by fungus making it prudent to have a sample of the infected material to determine the real culprit and be able to decide which antibiotic is best suited for the condition. Using the intuition I had on Sinuses, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Sinuses has been included here.

Preventing the occurrence of sinus infections require the appropriate amounts of rest, a well-balanced diet, and exercise can help the body function at its most efficient level and maintain a general resistance to infections. Eliminating environmental factors, such as climate and pollutants, is not always possible, but they can often be controlled. As always, it is good to have preventive measures undertaken to decrease your chances of contracting this disease. Like what they say, 'An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.'
