Importance of debrider in endoscopic management of fungal sinusitis

In this blog I wish to stress the importance of debrider in the endoscopic management of fungal sinusitis. Since debrider cuts only on one side the other normal areas of nasal cavity like the nasal septum are not traumatized. The other advantages include:

1. The debrider blade since it is attached to a suction apparatus sucks and holds the nasal polypi to the cutting surface.
2. The rotating blade cuts the tissue which is held by suction
3. The irrigation portal is connected to saline. This dripping saline prevents clogging of the debrider blade with debris.

This video clipping below amply demonstrates the role of debrider:
