Chronic rhinosinusitis is defined as chronic sinus if the symptom lasts for longer than 12 weeks. The sinus cavity is an empty space in the facial bone around the nose and is connected to the nose through a small hole. Therefore the inflammation can spread to different areas and cause middle ear infection and conjunctivitis.
How sinusitis occurs
1Thickened sinus mucous membrane
There is a fine soft hair and mucous membrane on the wall of sinus cavity, so when the nasal discharge passes through, the bacteria are eliminated and the air is ventilated. However the mucous membrane gets thickened when patient suffers from cold, rhinitis or allergy.
2Closed sinus entrance
When mucous membrane swells, the entrance of sinus is closed.
3Pus in the sinus
Due to closed entrance of sinus, fresh air can not enter and the secretions in the sinus is unable to come out and become inflamed. This is then called sinusitis.

Point 1 Systematic treatment system
A careful inspection system determines treatment method according to cause and diagnosis result. There are times where otolaryngology recommends surgery to patients although there is no structural problem in the nose without getting patients to first take medications for sufficient time. If there is no structural problem, medication should be given priority and it is necessary to watch the progress and decide carefully whether or not surgery is required.
