BACKGROUND: The balloon catheter has been used for a decade to dilate paranasal sinus outflow tracts. The question is: how wide and how durable is the dilation of drainage pathways in patients in long-term observations after this procedure? OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to observe the changes occurring in the frontal sinus drainage pathway (FSDP) in patients with frontal sinusitis at least 6 months after surgery using balloon catheters in an isolated procedure...

BACKGROUND: Skull base injury is an infrequent complication during endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). We hypothesize that late recognition and repair of CSF leaks during ESS is associated with increased neurologic morbidity. METHODOLOGY: A retrospective review was performed of patients with skull base injury during ESS at a tertiary center from 1999-2015. The study population was separated into early (less than 72 hrs) and late (more than 72 hrs) intervention groups...

CONCLUSION: In terms of operation time, anesthesia method, and low complication rate, ESS and balloon sinuplasty seemed comparable. The advantages of balloon sinuplasty were shown to be shortness of sick leave, possibility to be performed as an in-office procedure, and lower adhesion formation. BACKGROUND: Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) has been considered as a treatment of choice for persistent chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). During the last decade balloon sinuplasty has been introduced as an alternative technique to dilate the ostium...

To evaluate the 2-year post-operative outcomes of pediatric patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) treated with balloon catheter sinuplasty (BCS) and ethmoidectomy compared to functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). Two-group, retrospective cohort study of 28 children with CRS was performed. Of these 28 participants, 15 were treated with traditional FESS (53.6 %) and 13 (46.4 %) underwent traditional ethmoidectomy with balloon sinuplasty. Pre-operative and 2-year postoperative total symptom scores and medications were compared...

CONCLUSION: This is the first controlled study of balloon sinuplasty's long-term efficacy with the follow-up time over 5 years. The results are in accordance with a previous 2-year-follow-up study. Both techniques retained the efficacy and patient satisfaction on average 6 years after the surgery. BACKGROUND: Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) and balloon sinuplasty are considered as a treatment for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) after a failure of conservative therapy...

OBJECTIVES: To find out the effect of minimal invasive sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty on mucociliary clearance and compare different methods of measuring mucociliary clearance. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients with chronic rhinosinusitis were randomized in 2 operative groups (uncinectomy or balloon sinuplasty). Before and 6 months after the treatment, patients filled out a quality of life questionnaire (Sino Nasal Outcome Test-22 [SNOT-22]), and mucociliary clearance was measured with endoscope and gamma camera after 0...

The editorial titled "Gizmos" in the April issue of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery was unfortunate. Intracapsular tonsillectomy is a rational surgical option for managing tonsillar hypertrophy causing obstructive sleep apnea in selected children. It is performed routinely by surgeons across the globe and has become the standard of care across northern Europe due to the high safety profile of the operation. The semirigid, dartlike design of the sinuplasty devices suggested the idea for an airway-specific set of high-pressure balloons...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review all the journal articles relevant to chronic maxillary sinusitis in order to discuss the optimal size of maxillary antrostomy during endoscopic sinus surgery. RECENT FINDINGS: Although endoscopic maxillary antrostomy is a longstanding and frequently performed procedure, there is limited evidence about the optimal size of the antrostomy. Commonly employed surgical options include dilation via balloon sinuplasty, traditional antrostomy with uncinectomy using forceps and powered microdebriders, enlargement of the natural ostium, and the mega-antrostomy or modified medial maxillectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure, developed with the aim of restoring patency of the paranasal sinuses ostia with minimal damage to the mucosa. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of balloon sinuplasty in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study comprising 18 patients with chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis who underwent balloon sinuplasty. Patients were evaluated for clinical criteria, quality of life (Sino-Nasal Outcome Questionnaire Test-20 [SNOT-20]), and computed tomography of the sinuses (Lund-Mackay staging) preoperatively and three to six months after the procedure...

Pediatric rhinosinusitis is a common sequela of upper respiratory infections in children. It is usually a self-limited disease, sometimes requiring antibiotic therapy. Surgery may be indicated in children who suffer complication of acute rhinosinusitis, severe recurrent acute rhinosinusitis, rhinosinusitis in cystic fibrosis with or without polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis refractory to maximal medical management, allergic fungal sinusitis, and paranasal sinus mucoceles. Surgical options include, adenoidectomy, sinus puncture and lavage, open surgical approaches, endoscopic sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty, and turbinectomy or turbinate reduction...

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of reports on the quality of life (QOL) assessment after frontal sinus surgery. This study aimed to assess the QOL of patients after one of three frontal sinus procedures, using the Glasgow Benefit Inventory (GBI) and the 22-item Sino-Nasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22). METHODS: We designed an observational study with two arms. The first arm was a cross-sectional retrospective study recruiting all patients (with rhinosinusitis or mucocele) who had balloon sinuplasty, frontal recess clearance, or endoscopic modified Lothrop procedure in our tertiary referral unit at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals, between April 2010 and April 2012...

Traditional management of mucoceles involve drainage using Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) and if required an external approach. These techniques may dramatically alter the normal anatomy and function of the sinuses and are associated with significant complications. Balloon dilatation of the sinus ostia is a minimally invasive technique that has been licensed for use in chronic sinusitis. We report the use of this novel technique in the management of a frontal sinus mucocele in a 47-year old female...

Trephination of the equine sinuses is a common surgical procedure in sedated standing horses. Standing sinus flap surgery has become increasingly popular in equine referral hospitals and offers several advantages over sinusotomy performed under general anesthesia, including reduced patient-associated risks and costs; less intraoperative hemorrhage, allowing better visualization of the operative site; and allows surgeons to take their time. Other minimally invasive surgical procedures include sinoscopic surgery, balloon sinuplasty, and transnasal laser sinonasal fenestration...
