Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is the mainstay of surgical management for sinus pathology in the modern age. The most common reason for performing ESS is for chronic rhinosinusitis, with or without polyp disease. However, the extended applications of ESS include closure of CSF leaks, resection of sinonasal tumours, nasolacrimal duct surgery, orbital decompression, and a means of approach to the skull base and intracranial cavity. The proximity of these important anatomical areas to the paranasal sinuses correlates with the types of complications associated with ESS.
