Clinically “Sinusitis” is described because the condition show up through an inflammatory response of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, fluid within the cavity, and / or underlying bone. It is also defined as institution of disorders characterised by using irritation of the mucosa of the nostril and paranasal sinuses lasting for atleast 12 weeks.   Pansinusitis is defined as circumstance wherein irritation of all of the paranasal sinuses takes place, which may be unilateral or bilateral. When one or extra sinuses isn't always worried it's far referred to as restricted disorder. When there's terrific brought infection, it leads to mucosal swelling and apposition, which causes ostial occlusion. This impairs the air flow and drainage of the sinus leading to reduced pO2, multiplied pCO2, improved PH and retained secretions. This environment decreases ciliary motility and bacterial overgrowth ensuing in viscid secretions. Bacterial exotoxins also are launched, further reducing the ciliary activity, resulting in a vicious cycle, which results in sinusitis. Hence, the basic concept in Endoscopic sinus surgical procedure is the upkeep of the everyday ventilation and drainage of sinuses, to help the diseased mucosa to get better and regenerate. There was no specific sex predominance in patients suffering from CRS, Endoscopic sinus surgery improves the quality of life by decreasing the post-operative symptoms score, the post-operative sinonasal outcome in non – atopic patients was better when compared to the atopic associated CRS patients, the post-operative sinonasal outcome in patients with limited disease in the sinuses was better than in patients with pansinusitis.
