Endoscopic Resection of Concha Bullosa

Concha bullosa represents a benign entity that can present problems for the endoscopic sinus surgeon by limiting access and visualization to the middle meatus.  Additionally, this may be a significant contributor to a patient’s nasal obstruction, or the leading factor for osteomeatal complex obstruction. Endoscopic removal provides a quick, safe, and reliable means to deal with this issue and provide the appropriate surgery for the patient.
