Since the beginning of the 20th century, the surgical approach to the maxillary sinus has changed considerably. Wide surgical approaches such as used in the Denker procedure have been abandoned. More selective techniques were meanwhile used such as the modified Sturmann-Canfield approach. The advances in visualization and instrumentation have allowed the preservation of more structures, for example, in latest years, more conservative transnasal endoscopic approaches such as the prelacrimal window approach and pyriform turbinoplasty have became increasingly popular in gaining access to the maxillary sinus and to the pyriform aperture.
