Resumen

ARANIS J, Carolina; OPORTO C, Jorge  y  CARO L, Jorge. Paranasal sinuses cancers. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2008, vol.68, n.1, pp.80-90. ISSN 0718-4816.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48162008000100012.

Cancers of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are infrequent and of a great variety of histological types. The complexity of the surrounding vital structures render radical surgery and radiation therapy delicate and associated with numerous complications. Recent papers on nasal and paranasal sinuses carcinomas have shown a progressive improvement of treatments and results. Here we review paranasal sinuses tumor types and discuss current treatment options, including surgical techniques and polimodal therapy. Paranasal sinuses treatment is complex, because of the anatomic details of the region and the variety of cancers found in this area. At present, the gold standard is open or transnasal surgery, combined with adjuvant radiation therapy. Potential complications include cerebrospinal fluid leakage, meningitis, abscess formation and blindness, among others. in order to improve the survival of cancer patients, we should focus on early and accurate diagnosis as well as in the search for more effective treatments that minimize undesired side effects

Palabras clave : Neoplasia ofparanasal sinuses; paranasal sinuses surgery.
