Abstract

Background: The increased experience with the endoscopic approach to sinonasal inflammatory disease has resulted in the increased use of endoscopes to manage many different sinonasal pathologies. Methods: A chart review of patients with sinonasal tumors treated with primary endoscopic management, from January, 1993 to November, 2003 was performed. Results: Forty patients were identified (26 men and 14 women). The mean age was 53.2 years, and the mean follow-up was 31.1 months. For benign tumors, 24 patients were identified with a mean age of 50.7 years, a mean follow-up of 17.5 months, and a recurrence rate of 4.2%. For malignant tumors, 16 patients were identified, with a mean age of 57.3 years, a mean follow-up of 51.5 months, and a recurrence rate of 31.3%. The overall survival rate was 87.5%. Conclusion: Endoscopic surgical excision of selective sinonasal tumors may be an effective therapeutic modality. In some cases, adjuvant external procedures may be required based on tumor location.
