Transcript

  • 1. Avoiding Complications in ESS Balasubramanian Thiagarajan drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 2. Intranasal ethmoidectomy is the Easiest way to kill a patient Mosherdrtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 3. Common complications● Injury to orbit● Injury to optic nerve● Injury to great vessels● CSF leak● Injury to nasolacrimal duct● Synechiae drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 4. Factors that help in avoiding complications● Nasal endoscope● True cut instruments● Shaver system● Imaging● Image guidance● Through knowledge of anatomy● Hypotensive anesthesia drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 5. Complications are common in:● Revision FESS● Surgery for nasal polyposis● Type III kerio skull base● Right handed surgeons● Anatomical variants like asymmetrical low lying ethmoidal roof drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 6. Some stable intranasal landmarks● Middle turbinate● Uncinate process● Bulla ethmoidalis● Sphenoid ostium● Skull base● Maxillary sinus ostium drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 7. 10 Rules● Avoid classical uncinectomy if possible (prevents synechia in the infundibular region)● Avoid middle turbinate resection● Dont be a destroyer of nose● Avoid combination of septal surgery with FESS● Retain bulla till the very end drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 8. Contd● Look out for washout sign● Proceed from less vascular areas to more vascular ones● Hypotensive anesthesia● Abandon surgery when bleeding is excessive● Avoid nasal packing drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 9. Extreme Uncinate positions drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 10. Training a Surgeon● 100 diagnostic endoscopies● Cadaver dissection● Supervised surgery● Staged surgery● Dedicated work in follow up clinics drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 11. Lamina papyracea ● Respect the Bulla ● Bulb press test ● Beware of lateralized uncinate ● Always use sickle knife perpendicular to lateral nasal wall drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 12. Onodi cell ● Be aware of this condition ● This condition will cause difficulty in identifying sphenoid sinus ● Optic nerve is endangereddrtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 13. Intersphenoidal septum Use true cut instruments in this scenario drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 14. Kero skull base types ● Beware of type 3 skull base ● Avoid excessive medialisation of middle turbinate ● Always keep skull base in view drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 15. Orbital complications● Orbital hematoma● Diplopia● Nasolacrimal duct injury● Subcutaneous emphysema● Blindness drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 16. Orbital hematoma● Indicates breach of lamina● Can occur despite intact periorbita● Risk increases 4 times when periorbita is breached● Common in post septal injuries● Venous / arterial bleed (rate of development of symptoms vary) drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 17. Ecchymosis / orbital hematoma Ecchymosis Orbital hematoma Preseptal accumulation Post septal accumulationInjury to angular vein Injury to veins around lamina/ anterior/posterior ethmoidal arteryCauses more lid oedema / color is darker Lid oedema is lessConjunctiva normal /pupil normal Conjunctival chemosis /pupillary changesNo proptosis Proptosis drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 18. Diplopia● Caused due to temporary / permanent injury to medial rectus / superior oblique muscles● Powered instruments are known to cause more damage to medial rectus● Injury due to: nerve,blood supply, direct damage● Unintentional injection of anesthetic into lamina can cause temporary diplopia drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 19. Subcutaneous emphysema● Very common● Immediate / delayed● Immediate due to breach of lamina on the table● Delayed due to forceful blowing of nose during the immediate post op period. Can be prevented by not packing the middle meatus drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 20. Blindness● Temporary● Permanent drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 21. Temporary blindness● Increasing orbital pressure due to hematoma● Compromises blood supply to optic nerve● Intraocular pressure may reduce within 2 hrs● Light perception – several hours● Pupil – 2 days to recover drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 22. Permanent blindness● Disaster● Retrobulbar / retro orbital hematoma● Retina can tolerate extremes of pressures only for 2 hours. Intervention should be within this window. If it is arterial bleed then this window reduces by half an hour drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 23. Prevention● Respect landmarks● Pre op assessment of bleeding diathesis● Aspirin intake● Right handed surgeons – prone to cause more damage due to anatomical illusion on the left side. Left ethmoidal sinus is actually more medial than appreciated by the surgeon drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 24. Management● Arterial hematoma – managed at war footing● IV mannitol 20%● Orbital massage● Heavy dose of steroids – 1-1.5 mg /kg in divided doses of dexamethasone drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 25. Nasolacrimal duct injury● Sac & duct lie close to ethmoids● Agger nasi cells are adjacent to sac● Natural ostium of maxillary sinus lie close to the duct● To avoid injury antrostomy should be performed anterior to the anterior end of middle turbinate● Injury commonly resolves on their own drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 26. drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 27. Recirculation syndrome drtbalus otolaryngology online
  • 28. Thank youdrtbalus otolaryngology online
