Abstract

Case Report:

A 50-year-old male patient had sinus augmentation on his right side. However, postoperatively, his symptoms were protracted. A CT scan showed thickening of the Schneiderian membrane and scattered graft material. Management included endoscopic nasal examination and ostium enlargement, antibiotic coverage, and full enucleation of the graft and diseased tissue.

Conclusion:

Patency of the sinus ostium should be carefully evaluated before sinus lift/grafting procedure using CT technology. Radiology and otolaryngology consultations may be necessary to rule out ostium stenosis before surgery.
