Abstract:

Objective.The objective of this study is to evaluatethe efficacy of image-guided
systems in nasal and skull base surgeries.Study design. This is a prospective case
control study. Material and methods. A total number of 24 patients were included in this
study. The relevant pre-operative, operative and post-operative records were collected
and analyzed. Results:The mean total operative time was greater for the imageguidance
surgery group (130 minutes; range 95-160 minutes) than for the control
group (119 minutes; range 85-150 minutes). However, the mean actual operative time
was less for the image-guidance surgery group (93 minutes; range 65-120 minutes)
than the control group (99 minutes; range 70-130 minutes).The image-guidance
surgery group had no major complications. However the control group had 3 major
complications (25%).The average estimated blood loss (EBL) was higher for the
image-guidance surgery group (395 mL; range 130-1100 mL) than the control group
(380 mL; range 100-950 mL).Conclusion: Image guided system may reduce the
complications associated with endoscopic sinus surgery and allow for a more thorough
operation
