Paper Abstract

Forty-one cases of recurrent cancer in the maxillary sinus and ethmoid sinus were treated by Nd:YAG laser, CO2 laser, PDT, and operation. The partial skull fundus invaded by the advanced carcinoma in the maxillary sinus and ethmoid sinus was resected with laser through the cranial facial section. The cancer in the maxillary sinus is the most common in primary paranasal carcinoma, accounting for 80 percent. The malignant tumors in the ethmoid sinus are minor. Radiation and operation are usually performed in them, but it is easy for the cancer to recur after treatment. To save and continue life, 41 cases of recurrent carcinoma in the paranasal sinuses were cured by laser and PDT from 1979 to 1991.
