Sinus catheters were inserted in 44 children (mean age 8.5 years) suffering from acute and chronic purulent polysinusitis. In 33 outpatients sinus catheterization was combined with nasal irrigation providing a persistent therapeutic effect on the inflammation focus. In view of good treatment results both methods are offered for inpatient and outpatient pediatric practice of treating sinusitis.
