Endoscopic Removal of Antrochoanal Polyp

  • 1Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.


To evaluate the result of endoscopic surgery in the treatment of antrochoanal polyps (ACPs), 34 consecutive patients were monitored from February 1991 through June, 1996 in Seoul National University Hospital. Ten cases were treated by osteoplastic Caldwell-Luc antrostomy, 23 cases by endoscopic surgery, and 1 case by both procedures. In all cases, the polyps were removed completely. Two cases recurred: one after endoscopic approach, and the other after both of the procedures. They were treated again by endoscopic approach with no more recurrence. The endoscopic removal of ACPs are an alternative to conventional surgical treatment with a low rate of recurrence and complications, especially in children.
