[Optimal outpatient treatment of maxillary inflammation].

To improve treatment of outpatients with maxillary inflammation (MI) it is recommended, in case of failure of previous standard conservative therapy, to drain the maxillary sinus for a long time. Catheter should be inserted into the maxillary sinus for maximum time but not longer than for 10-12 days. When inflammation is not corrected by the first course of therapy, the drainage is removed and the patients receive conditioning, mucolytic and immunostimulating therapy in combination with physiotherapy for 8-10 days with a following another course of drainage. In persistent maxillary sinusitis, it is possible to use long-term lavage of the maxillary sinus via catheter attached to the dispenser. Such an approach is effective in the majority of patients.
