Is a sinustomy part of a surgery to repair an oaf in right maxillary sinus ? My surgery included a bone graft (oaf the size of cannellini bean).

In brief: It is a broad term.

A sinustomy is a broad term meaning the creation of an opening into the sinus.
You are having the reverse procedure performed. You already have a communication from the mouth to the sinus which is being repaired by a bone graft.
