Allergy and Sinusitis
Allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis are chronic processes that considerably decrease the quality of life. In Guatemala, allergic patients often have perennial symptoms, further affecting daily activities. Fortunately, there are currently very effective medical and surgical treatments to control these symptoms.
Endoscopic sinus surgery is a very effective procedure for rhinosinusitis when medical treatment alone is unable to significantly reduce symptoms. It is an outpatient surgery, without external scars and a benign postoperative period. Shrinking turbinates and septoplasty are also outpatient procedures that help reduce nasal respiratory failure and nasal congestion.
