Abstract

Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) was compared with Caldwell-Luc (C-L) operation based on blood loss during surgery, operation time, period of hospitalization and complications. Both blood loss and operation time were significantly reduced in ESS as compared with C-L operation. In addition, patients undergoing ESS resulted in discharges after surgery earlier than those undergoing C-L operation. Minor complication was seen in 4.8% of the ESS patients whereas no major complication was recognized. ESS is a relatively safe procedure with superiority over C-L operation.
