Abstract Based on this review of 1192 intranasal sinus procedures under endoscopic control with video assistance, the risk of major complications was estimated to be about 1.3 per cent. Ethmoidectomy was the most hazardous procedure. Operation by a right-handed surgeon standing on the right side of the patient was an added risk factor. We stress ways of achieving prevention, peroperative recognition of cerebrospinal fluid leaks and proper management of complications.
