The aim of this study was to determine histologic findings in the maxilaarysinus mucosa by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transsmission electron microscopy (TEM), and ciliary activity within the nasal cavity by measuring the speed of mucociliary transport and after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS).
