Wan Mahadzir Mustafa, Julaiha Baharudin: An Unlikely Foreign Body In The Maxillary Sinus. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2009; 7: 21–24.

Abstract: This case report describes the diagnosis and management of an unusual foreign body in right maxillary sinus of a 28 years old Myanmar man. A metallic bolt lodged in the right maxillary sinus for more than 2 years caused recurrent episodes of pain and swelling over the patients right cheek. Access to right maxillary sinus was gained through Caldwell-Luc Procedure. The bolt and the entire antral lining was removed successfully. The importance of pre and intra-operative radiological examination in making the removal of the foreign body both expedient and complication-free was emphasized.
