ESS improves CRS-related subjective olfactory dysfunction with greatest gains seen in those with poorer CT scores at baseline
An association between CRS and EoE as comorbid conditions suggests that a familial component is contributing to the etiology of both diseases
Patients with chronic rhinosinusitis and comorbid obstructive sleep apnea see substantial improvements in quality of life following sinus surgery
Stilianos Kountakis, MD, PhD, and Joshua Yelverton, MD, discuss the differences in sinonasal symptoms and clinical findings between patients with primary headache syndrome and chronic rhinosinusitis.
How much is lost in annual productivity costs for a patient with refractory chronic rhinosinusitis (RCRS), and what is the relationship between productivity costs and RCRS-specific characteristics?
Maintaining sinus patency after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) has long been an issue; as many as 23 to 47 percent of patients require revision surgery after FESS. Now, a new drug-eluting, bioabsorbable stent manufactured by Intersect (Palo Alto, Calif.) is being billed as a “breakthrough treatment [that] improves outcomes for sinus surgery,” according to a news release from the company. The device, which received pre-market approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August, has been studied since 2008. It is currently available in Texas, New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Atlanta, Ohio and Kentucky.
Are chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS)-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes affected by concurrent septoplasty performed during endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) for medically refractory CRS? Background: Septoplasty is commonly performed during ESS. Some might question whether ESS outcomes, even CRS-specific outcomes, are the result of the ESS, the septoplasty or some combination of the two. Because objective […]
In patients who have failed medical management for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), are there greater quality of life (QOL) outcome improvements with further medical therapy or endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS)? Background: Although it is widely believed that QOL measures are improved with ESS, there is insufficient evidence in the literature comparing various treatments for CRS. This study […]
Are anatomic variations of the middle turbinate (MT), such as concha bullosa and paradoxical MT, associated with nasal septal deviation or chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS)? Background: CRS has multiple underlying causes. Although anatomic variations of nasal and sinus structures have been implicated as a possible risk factor for CRS, there is no agreement in the literature. Study […]
