The use revolutionary medical equipment in cancer treatment has made it possible for patients to enjoy a wide range of services that concerns the treatment.

One of the challenges which doctors have been facing when it comes to treating cancer is dealing with drugs resistance drugs. The use of technology has helped doctors to carry out research and come up with a product that would deal with the challenge.

While there were others who discovered vaccination before Jenner, such as Benjamin Jesty (1737–1816), Jenner’s research was the “first scientific attempt to control an infectious disease by the deliberate use of vaccination”. Furthermore, Jenner was ardent in his investigation and was persistent in publicising his vaccine. For instance, Figure 1 below shows an extract from a letter written by Jenner himself on the instructions for vaccine inoculation targeted to those who were interested in the smallpox vaccine. By 1800, his effort led to a widespread use of vaccination in majority of the European countries. This new knowledge on inhibition of the spread of contagious diseases was a reason that led to the ideology that the “right of the individual to contract and spread infectious disease should be suspended”.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive technique in which sinus air cells and sinus ostia are opened under direct visualization. The aim of this procedure is to restore sinus ventilation and normal functions.1 Stammberger, Messerklinger, Wigand, and Kennedy and colleagues created a revolution in the understanding and surgical management of nasal sinus disease. The ability to use nasal endoscopy for the diagnosis, identification of sinus and nasal pathology within the narrow spaces and recesses of the nose, and delicate management of the disease has benefited the patient by more accurate surgery, preservation of function, and rapid healing.2 With the arrival of modern endoscopic sinus surgery instruments and techniques in the 1980s,
