sinusit treatment

S Grygorov, G Poberezhnik, A Grygorova
Odontogenic maxillary sinusitis has now increasing incidence in dental and otorhynolaryngological practice. Its incidence varies from 10-12 % to 50-75 %, according to different authors. Literature study showed that odontogenic maxillary sinusites are mostly unilateral, and significantly differ in complaints, clinical signs, and diagnostic and treatment measures from other types of sinusitis. This should be taken into account, because often odontogenic maxillary sinusitis is misdiagnosed with common sinusitis, and only in 77 % such patients are examined by both dental specialist and otorhynolaryngologist...

The objective of the study was to analyse the role of computed tomography in the evaluation of outcomes of endoscopic operations in patients with different forms of chronic sinusitis. A total of 47 patients were examined using this technique including 26 after endoscopic treatment for polypous sinusitis and 21 after the treatment of chronic purulent sinusitis. The follow up period ranged from 2 to 11 years. It is concluded that computed tomography provides reliable spatial information about the inflammatory processes in paranasal sinuses necessary for comprehensive assessment of the outcome of endoscopic surgery for chronic sinusites...

UNLABELLED: Wegener's granulomatosis there is a small--and middle--vessels vasculitis. The pathomorphological diagnostic criteria is known as Wegener's triad: 1) necrotizing granlomatous inflammation of upper and/or lower respiratory tract, 2) systemic or focal necrotizing vasculitis involving arteries and vein, and 3) focal segmental necrotizing crescentic gromerulonephritis. According to the current theory of pathogenesis of Wegener's granulomatosis, Staphylococcus aureus is involved...

Sinus infections, often viral, are a common reason for physician visits. The multiplicity of clinical presentations makes its diagnosis difficult. The problem is to recognize bacterial infection without additional testing, except in cases of treatment failures, complications or relapse. Patients with signs suggestive of rhinosinusitis fall into one of four basic clinical situations: common colds, 'doubtful' rhinosinusitis, apparent acute maxillary bacterial rhinosinusitis, and complications. Anterior rhinoscopy may help confirm diagnosis...

The sinusites orbital complications usually associated to ethmoidites are rare in the childhood. We present a revision of 14 adults patients (10 males and 4 females) 18 to 61 years old. Seven presented a preseptal cellulitis, two had a subperiostial abscess and five an orbitary cellulitis in accordance with the Candler classification. We analyse the personal previous history, the clinical data, complementary tests and treatments (medical and surgical) evolution and hospital stay. We realise a literature revision about this subject...

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery has become an increasingly popular treatment for chronic sinusitis. This approach is aimed at re-establishment of ventilation and mucociliary clearance of the sinuses. However, some otolaryngologists believe that the Caldwell-Luc procedure should be routinely used for unilateral chronic sinusitis, because it is often associated with the maxillary sinus carcinomas. To evaluate the state of endoscopic sinus surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of unilateral chronic sinusitis, we analyzed the cases of 39 patients with unilateral chronic sinusitis who underwent endoscopic sinus procedures...

We report the case of an immunocompetent patient who has been the subject of 39 episodes of recurrent pneumococcal meningitis over a 20 year period. The recurrences of bacterial meningitis due to cerebrospinal fluid leakage and the presence of chronic sinusitis were not influenced by the surgical repair of a fistula and the repeated surgical draining interventions on suppurating chronic sinusital foci. Phenoxymethylpenicillin treatment reduced the number of recurrences and the combination of pneumococcal vaccine and penicillin prophylaxis allowed a 5 year period free of any recurrences...

The authors report on 16 new cases of non-invasive nasosinusal aspergillar sinusitis over a period of 4 years. They stress the importance of the local inducive factors in such apparently healthy patients. The value of treatment by endonasal microsurgery is underlined, enabling the positive diagnosis and cure of these chronic sinusites that do not respond to medical treatment.

The article presents data on 22 inpatients with brain abscesses of rhinosinusogenic etiology who were treated at the Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery. It was found important that X-ray examination of the paranasal sinuses be carried out in all patients of this group even if they present with no rhioscopic changes, which is explained by an elevated number of torpid and latent sinusites. To detect rhinosinusogenic brain abscesses at an early stage, examination including a series of such objective methods as EEG, Echo-EG, cerebral angiography, gamma-topography of the brain and computer-aided tomography was carried out...

Samples of intracranial pus and serum from 32 patients were assayed to determine the concentrations reached in them of penicillin, ampicillin, cloxacillin, cephaloridine, gentamicin, chloramphenicol, fusidic acid, and lincomycin. Metronidazole had not been given. Penicillin penetrated abscesses reasonably well, but other beta-lactam antibiotics did not. The penetration of chloramphenicol was erratic. Aminoglycosides penetrated poorly, but lincomycin and fusidic acid penetrated well. Assay of sulphonamides and co-trimoxazole in pus was unreliable...
