and Objectives Endoscopic prelacrimal recess approach (PLRA) was introduced to treat maxillary sinus inverted papilloma (IP) without sacrificing the inferior turbinate and nasolacrimal duct. This study aimed to compare surgical outcomes of prelacrimal recess approach with the conventional Caldwell-Luc approach (CLA) to remove IP of maxillary sinus and to evaluate the usefulness of the PLRA. Subjects and Method We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 51 patients who were treated in our

Sixteen patients underwent endoscopic sinus surgery combined with either CLA (n=8) or PLRA (n=8). Demographic data, surgical technique, site of IP origin, intra-and postoperative complications, duration of follow-up, recurrence rate and pathologic diagnosis were reviewed. Results IP was the pathologic diagnosis for all 16 cases. Gross total removal was achieved in all cases. The mean follow-up period was 20.1 months in CLA group and 12.5 months in PLRA group. There was one case of massive bleeding during operation requiring transfusion and postoperative ICU care in CLA group. On postoperative follow-up, two patients from the CLA group had recurrence during the follow-up period. One patient had numbness around the gingival area, another patient had transient wound dehiscence, and another had persistent oro-antral fistula. In PLRA group, one patient had periorbital swelling after blowing nose; otherwise, no other patient from the PLRA group developed subjective complaints after surgery. Conclusion Endoscopic prelacrimal recess approach showed lower complication rates and recurrence rates compared to CLA. PLRA is a safe and effective method for the excision of primary maxillary sinus IP.
