The role of laser radiation therapy in maxillary sinusitis.

Efficacy of prescribed noninvasive & invasive types of treatment of maxillary sinusitis has been compared with low-dose LASER therapy (LLT). After going through the observations of different authors on the therapeutic role of LLT (GaA1AS-LASER) in non-ENT infective diseases, its use in 'sinusitis' has been adjudged. Such type of study-report has not been found by us in the literatures, available to us.It was observed here that the LLT has produced better result with better acceptation by patients in the management of 'sinusitis' A LLT-treatment virtually produced no side-effect/complication as compared with the invasive methods.In this study. 25 cases, treated by LLT, out of 200 cases, treated by conventional methods, yielded good result in 22 & satisfactory result in 3 cases.
