New innovation in endoscopic approach to the uncinate process â??Rafidain techniqueâ?.

The endoscopic uncinectomy is considered as a crucial surgical step to perform endoscopic middle meatus antrostomy therefore there are different surgical techniques to do endoscopic uncinectomy. However, most common surgical approaches are Stammberger classical technique and swing-door technique which was introduced by Prof. PJ Wormald in 1998. This is a single center prospective study to emerge an alternative surgical approach “Rafidain technique” to perform simple, safe uncinectomy for 20 patients in Al-Mawani Teaching Hospital. The purpose of this study is to create a new simple, safe endoscopic uncinectomy in comparison to current surgical techniques.
