  • It is also common practice to administer prophylactic antibiotics when the fracture enters a sinus, although this practice is largely anecdotal. (wikipedia.org)
  • nose

  • Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure that ear, nose and throat surgeons may use for the treatment of blocked sinuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosal
  • Such limited ventilation may be protective for the sinus, as it would help prevent drying of its mucosal surface and maintain a near-sterile environment with high carbon dioxide concentrations and minimal pathogen access. (wikipedia.org)
  • ventilation
