Sinus Problems in Children

Sinus surgery in children is significantly rare. It is fortunate that for most children most problems with children sinuses actually are various forms of nasal obstruction. 98% of the time, children with sinus problems are secondary to enlargement of the tonsils and adenoids and removal of the tonsils and adenoids oftentimes relieves nasal airway obstruction, mucus production, nosebleeds, mouth breathing, snoring, chronic nasal congestion, cough, etc. Sinus surgery in children should only be performed if the child has no tonsils or adenoids and is not responding to very aggressive long-term medical management.
