Benefits of Nasosinusal Endoscopic Surgery

In nasosinusal endoscopic surgery, the complications decrease: the patient has less post-surgical inflammation in the face and less pre and postoperative bleeding .
In most cases nasosinusal endoscopic surgery does not cause clogging. If they happen these are not very uncomfortable, so the patient can lead a normal life.
Endoscopic nasosinusal surgery allows a faster recovery compared to any other practice, since the patient only has to be admitted a few hours or at most one day in the hospital or medical center. In this way, it generates a smaller number of facial and orbitary hematomas than surgery by external means. Thus, the postoperative becomes shorter and bearable for the patient, because a greater control of the hemorrhage is used , which means that there is a lower presence of epistaxis and scabs .
