Abstract

Sinusitis is a recognised rare complication of palatine expansion procedures and is usually caused by the presence of an oroantral fistula. We report the first case of unilateral sinusitis as a result of a retained foreign body (a wooden spatula) following a surgically assisted rapid palatine expansion procedure.
