Minimally invasive surgery termed safe for alleviating pain and sinusitis pressureAccording to a research, minimally invasive surgery is a safe and effective therapy for alleviating the pain and pressure of sinusitis for geriatric patients who can’t be helped by medication alone.

Dr. Stilianos E. Kountakis, otolaryngologist, vice chair of the Medical College of Georgia Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery and a principal author on the study published in the December issue of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, said the finding suggests that sinus problems must not be ignored in the elderly and there is a surgical technique that is not that invasive and offers good outcomes.

Dr. Kountakis and collaborators, led by Drs. J. Chris Colclasure and Charles W. Gross at the University of Virginia Health System found patients continue reporting improvement in symptoms over the year after surgery besides experiencing few minor complications and no major complications.

Steroids for sinusitis!If we look for figures we’ll see that almost 37 million Americans suffer from acute sinus pressure, nasal congestion and similar allergies every year. The most common therapy recommended by the doctors include antibiotics which do prove to be a big relief from this acute condition but this is followed by a chest cold most of the times.

However, the good news is that a new research carried on by Isareli experts says that steroid nasal sprays can help ease symptoms of sinus in a much better way and also aid in speedy recovery. This can prove to be highly beneficial for patients suffering from the same because sinus is an extremely painful condition.

The research was carried forth by carrying out randomized trials on nearly 2000 participants suffering from severe sinusitis. The participants who had to undergo X-ray or nasal endoscopy to confirm the diagnosis either received a placebo or intranasal corticosteroids for atleast two or three weeks. They were administered with this either only with steroids or in combination with antibiotics. The Intranasal corticosteroids employed primarily included fluticasone propionate (Flonase), mometasone furoate (Nasonex) and budesonide (Rhinocort).
