    Abstract

    We describe a functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) technique that involves the simultaneous use of endoscope and suction in the nondominant hand that bears resemblance to chopstick use. The FESS chopstick technique reduces time for suction and improves operative field visualization.
