Powered instrumentation is a good choice for the removal of maxillary sinus lesions. It is efficient and safe and preserves normal sinus mucosa.

     A patient presented with a history of recurring maxillary sinusitis and nasal congestion. He had experienced a nasal fracture 20 years previously that had not been surgically repaired. Examination revealed poor nasal airways, with a septal deflection and obstruction on the right side and hypertrophic inferior and middle turbinates in the left airway. Computed tomography (CT) of the sinuses confirmed the nasal findings and also detected the presence of large maxillary sinus cysts bilaterally (figure, A).
