Background /Objectives: To study 30 cases of patients of chronic adenoiditis with adenoid facies and refractory chronic rhinosinusitis managed by endoscopic assisted adenoidec-tomy.
Materials and method: 7 cases of adenoid facies and 23 cases of chronic refractory rhi-nosinusitis with adenoiditis were managed by endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy during the study period of 12 months from August 2012 to July 2013.
Result: endoscopic assisted adenoidectomy proves to be more effective in managing ade-noid facies and chronic refractory rhinosinusi-tis with adenoid hyperplasia.
Conclusion: visualization of the adenoid mass using endoscope helps complete removal of the diseased adenoids. Endoscopic assisted ade-noidectomy is treatment of choice in adenoid facies and chronic refractory rhinosinusitis with adenoid hyperplasia and more effective than conventional adenoidectomy.
