Sinus Surgery Malpractice

Posted by Frank Spector | Feb 02, 2015 | 0 Comments

Many people suffer from nasal congestion and problems with their sinuses. In some cases. over the counter medications like nasal spray or prescription antibiotics do not solve the problems associated with sinusitis.  In those cases, surgery is done. But this type of surgery is not without risks.

Surgical instruments are placed in the nose and up through the sinuses.  One of the serious injuries that can occur is when the doctor goes too far with the instruments and breaks through the top and into the brain.  In these cases, there can be a range of damage including leakage of spinal fluid from the hole that is made. There can also be damage to the brain.

A hole can be difficult to patch and a neurosurgeon may have to enter from the top of the head to patch the hole. This can leave the person with a permanent loss of smell and taste.

Any surgery, including sinus surgery can cause damage if not done properly.
