Abstract: 

Background: Along with the development of medical sciences, new methods of treatment are introduced. One of these new methods in ENTa field is FESSb. It is more effective than any other surgical procedures and has less postoperative complications. It also shortens the duration of hospital stay. Because of the importance of endoscopic surgery in diagnosis and treatment of nasal and sinus diseases, we assessed both the results of such surgeries and the degree of the patients" satisfaction of the procedure. This retrospective study was performed on the patients who underwent FESS in Imam Khomeini Hospital of TUMSc (2002 Sep.).
Material and methods: In this study several variables were investigated. These variables were: identifying data, symptoms and signs on admission, duration of disease before endoscopic surgery, predisposing factors, surgical procedures, postoperative complications and the patient"s satisfaction of clinical improvements after surgery. In order to assess the degree of patients" satisfaction of , their improvements, a one-year follow-up of the patients was performed. In this follow-up all the patients were examined; complete improvement and the consequent satisfaction of the patient as well as incomplete improvement and the patient"s complaint of remaining symptoms were all considered.
Results: Only 70 of the 93 records were statistically accepted and assessed. The results are as follows:
- Complete recovery: 66% of the patients
- Relative recovery: 27.50% of the patients
- No change in the symptoms on admission: 6.50% of the patients.
It should also be added that in none of the patients the symptoms on admission was worsened.
Conclusion: Endoscopic sinus surgery is more effective than any other surgical procedures, has less postoperative complications, and shortens the duration of hospital stay. So it is recommended that the equipments be provided for the clinical and university centers so that this useful treatment procedure can be improved and applied vastly more than before.
