Sinus surgery publication

New research led by the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) team has supported the safety of performing endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) as a day case for most patients. The new study – Safety of day-case endoscopic sinus surgery in England, published in Clinical Otolaryngology – aimed to demonstrate the safety of day case ESS, an operation on the sinuses which uses small telescopes (endoscopes) to improve drainage and ventilation and therefore prevent infections.
