Abstract

Various surgical techniques for the removal of a foreign body from maxillary sinuses have been reported. However, the access window in the lateral wall of the maxillary sinus cavity is not replaced by a bony wall when sinus grafting is not performed. The replaceable bony window provides an access window into the sinus cavity and maintains the integrity of the lateral wall of the sinus cavity after the removal of a foreign body from the sinus. Saline irrigation and suction are simple and quick techniques to remove foreign bodies from the sinus. This technique does not require special equipment, including that of endoscopy.
