Abstract

Historically, neoplastic processes of the lateral nasal wall and maxillary sinus have been treated with external procedures. Advances in endoscopic sinus surgery have enabled some of these same disease processes to be treated using endoscopic techniques. Endoscopic medial maxillectomy may be used as an alternative to more invasive external approaches while maintaining similar cure rates. In this article, the authors describe the endoscopic medial maxillectomy for neoplastic diseases involving the maxillary sinus.
