Abstract:
Inverted papilloma (IP) of the maxillary sinus is a common, benign tumour with controversial recurrence rates. Endoscopic endonasal techniques are primarily used to address this type of tumour. In addition to classical endoscopic medial maxillectomy, the pre-lacrimal approach has been described in the literature. We present a retrospective study of 16 patients with primary or recurrent IP of the maxillary sinus treated with the pre-lacrimal endoscopic endonasal technique. After a median follow-up period of 32.3 months, no patient showed signs of recurrent disease. Thus, the pre-lacrimal approach is shown to be an effective method with limited patient morbidity in the treatment of IP.
