Abstract


In this paper, an improvement of the maxillary sinus drainage after the remotion of foreign bodies by Caldwell-Luc surgery is developed. Three patients with tooth or radicular apex introduced into the maxillary antrum during dental extraction were submitted to the surgery. In contrast to the opening to the nasal cavity, two probes were installed to perform the irrigation and aspiration of the antrum after the surgery. The conclusions are that the use of the probes is an advance in the Caldwell-Luc surgery. With the irrigation and aspiration, the opening to the nasal cavity is not necessary and the result is a comfortable recovery to the patient. The Caldwell-Luc surgery is a safe and simple procedure to remove foreign bodies from the maxillary sinus.
