Caldwell Luc Surgery

Caldwell Luc SurgeryCaldwell-Luc is the fenestration of the anterior wall of the maxillary sinus and the surgical drainage of this sinus into the nose via an antrostomy. This procedure was first described by George Caldwell in 1893 of New York, and to the best of our knowledge employed by him as a staff member of The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary. Caldwell-Luc was used for treatment of chronic sinusitis, removal of polyps, cysts or foreign bodies, reduction of facial fractures, closure of dental fistulas into the maxillary sinus and as a route to the ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses.
