Background: Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a new and exciting treatment for chronic sinus disease. The present study was conducted to assess the outcomes of FESS in patients. Materials & Methods: The present study was based on 68 patients (32 males and 36 females) who underwent treatment by the FESS in the ENT Department of the Government Medical College, Amritsar, Punjab. Endoscopic septoplasty was performed in a traditional way. After septoplasty, nasal endoscopy was performed to visualize nasal cavity and lateral nasal wall. In all subjects, facial pain, pressure, headache, nasal blockage, congestion and nasal discharge was assessed. Results: Out of 68 patients, males were 32 and females were 36. There was significant reduction in clinical features such as facial pain, pressure, headache, nasal blockage, congestion and nasal discharge (P< 0.05). Conclusion: FESS proved to be useful in relieving symptoms such as facial pain, pressure, headache, nasal blockage, congestion and nasal discharge.
