I suggest that your husband gets a second opinion from an ENT specialist. His chronic sinusitis is most probably the cause for his snoring and once the cause for his chronic sinusitis is found and properly treated, his snoring might stop. You should also discuss the possibility of sleep apnea with the specialist.
