Abstract:   (4469 Views)
Maxillary sinus atelectasis is a rare and relatively unknown disease. Most patients present with non-sinonasel complaints. Negative intracavitary pressure due to ostial obstruction is suggested as the most probable etiology. Two patients with sinus atelectasis are presented in this paper: Case 1 presented with enophthalmus and maxillary sinus opacity and atelectasis in imaging. Endoscopic uncinectomy and midle antrostomy was done for this patient. Case 2 presented with mid-facial deformity and depression. Caldwel-Luc procedure with inferior meatal antrostomy was done. In 1 year follow up, they were asymptomatic and with no deterioration of facial deformity.
