Abstract
Objective:

The present study investigates the indications for transnasal endoscopic surgery in treating post-operative maxillary cysts.

Methods:

In this retrospective study, the records of 118 patients with post-operative maxillary cysts (88 unilateral and 30 bilateral) consisting of 148 procedures were reviewed.

Results:

A transnasal endoscopic approach was performed in 144 lesions (97.3 per cent). A combined endonasal endoscopic and canine fossa (external) approach was performed in 4 of 148 lesions, because the cysts were located distant from the nasal cavity and had a thick bony wall. A ventilation stent was placed in four patients (four cysts) to avoid post-operative meatal antrostomy stenosis. Recurrence was observed in five patients (4.2 per cent), all of whom subsequently underwent transnasal endoscopic revision surgery.

Conclusion:

Transnasal endoscopic surgery is an effective treatment for post-operative maxillary cyst with the exception of cysts located distant from the nasal cavity.
