Results with the puncture treatment (Kümmel-Becksche' Punktion) of frontal sinusitis


In acute and subacute cases of frontal sinusitis puncture and treatment of the frontal sinus via a plastic tube or a chronic cannula succeeds in more than 60% of the oases. It should be combined with a control of the nasal septum and the position of the medial turbinate. In chronic cases, we succeeded in only 40%. Recidives of chronic frontal sinusitis should not a second time be treated by puncture. These cases should be cured by operation.
