Puncture and lavage of the maxillary sinuses is a common procedure in ENT practice. Repeated irrigations are required in chronic sinusitis refractory to treatment. In our department we use a No. 14 gauge Braunula® for such cases. Over 100 patients have been treated over the past two years with no significant complications. This device is inexpensive, sterile, safe and easy to use and we recommend its use for patients with chronic maxillary sinusitis requiring repeated irrigations.
