Introduction: The major presenting symptom of nasal polyps is nasal obstruction. The role of nasal obstruction in the genesis of laryngeal disorders is still unknown. Materials and Methods: The aim of this study was to evaluate laryngeal videostroboscopic changes after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) in patients with nasal polyposis. A longitudinal study was carried out from March 2012 to June 2013. Thirty patients with bilateral nasal polyposis who did not respond to maximum medical treatment and were candidates for FESS were recruited...

REVIEW
Y J Chen, X B Chai
Chronic rhinosinusitis with or without nasal polyps mainly uses combination of medications represented by nasal glucocorticoids and functional sinus endoscopic surgery (FESS) and comprehensive treatment with antibiotics. The effect of oral antibiotics for CRS exacerbations on the microbial resistance rate in the population has not yet been fully assessed, but may be significant, and glucocorticoid-resistant CRS has also emerged. CRSwNP associated with complications of asthma is considered a more serious condition...

BACKGROUNDː Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is a minimally-invasive surgical technique for patients with paranasal sinus pathology. Surgical bleeding reduces operative field visibility and increases the incidence of serious complications. Epinephrine injection into the nasal mucosa and controlled hypotension are used to minimise bleeding. Hypotension carries risks and sometimes does not reduce surgical bleeding. The goal of this study is to discover which haemodynamic parameter better correlates with surgical bleeding...

Normal variations in the paranasal sinus region are well documented in literature. We present five cases of a little known normal variant, which can have serious implications for the patient as well as the operating surgeon. An ectopic infra orbital nerve canal coursing through the maxillary sinus has rarely been described in imaging literature. This may sometimes be mistaken for a simple septum in the maxillary sinus and may cause serious complications during Functional Endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) surgeries...

BACKGROUND: Prior research has established that anxiety and depression, as measured by the Hospital Anxiety Depression Score (HADS), are strongly correlated with disease-specific quality of life (Rhinosinusitis Disability Index - RSDI) in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). We hypothesized that anxiety and depression would decrease after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), and furthermore that HADS would predict improvement in RSDI following surgery. METHODOLOGY: The study cohort from 2014 consisted of 99 CRS patients who underwent nasal endoscopy, RSDI, and HADS evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Spacers are inserted into the middle meatal space (MMS) following functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) to prevent lateralization of the middle turbinate, scarring, and synechiae. Our objective was to determine if the incidence of postoperative synechiae, facial pain/discomfort, pain during spacer removal, scarring, and discharge differed between nasal cavities receiving Silastic or gloved-Merocel (GM) spacers following FESS. METHODS: A double-blind, randomized controlled trial (RCT) was conducted in adults requiring bilateral FESS for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) ± nasal polyposis...

OBJECTIVES: Among the predisposing factors implicated in the immune response to airway bacterial infections, genetic variations of the bitter taste receptor TAS2R38, which is expressed in the cilia of the human sinonasal epithelial cells, seem to be associated with susceptibility to chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and in vitro biofilm formation. Polymorphisms in TAS2R38 generate two common haplotypes: the nonfunctional AVI (Alanine, Valine, Isoleucine) and the functional PAV (Proline, Alanine, Valine) alleles, with the latter protecting against gram-negative sinonasal infections...

An approach to the construction of diabatic free energy surfaces (FESs) for ultrafast electron transfer (ET) in a supramolecule with an arbitrary number of electron localization centers (redox sites) is developed, supposing that the reorganization energies for the charge transfers and shifts between all these centers are known. Dimensionality of the coordinate space required for the description of multistage ET in this supramolecular system is shown to be equal to N - 1, where N is the number of the molecular centers involved in the reaction...

The on-line preconcentration technique of field-enhanced sample stacking and sweeping (FESS-sweeping) are combined with dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) to monitor the concentrations of finasteride, which is used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, and its metabolite, finasteride carboxylic acid (M3), in urine samples. DLLME is used to concentrate and eliminate the interferences of urine samples and uses chloroform as an extracting solvent and acetonitrile as a disperser solvent. A high conductivity buffer (HCB) was introduced into capillary and then sample plug (90...

BACKGROUND: Disagreement exists about the relationship between Lund-Mackay CT scores (LMCTS) and quality-of-life outcome (QoL) measures. We investigated whether preoperative LMCTS are associated with preoperative QoL, and whether LMCTS is predictive of postoperative QoL outcomes in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients. METHODS: Adult patients with medically recalcitrant CRS (n = 665) were enrolled in a prospective, observational cohort study. Preoperative LMCTS and pre- and postoperative self-reported QoL outcomes (22-item Sino-Nasal Outcomes Test [SNOT-22]) were collected and evaluated over 12 months...

OBJECTIVE: All successful endonasal surgery, including functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), depends on knowledge of both anatomy and the specific variations that can occur between and within patients. Familiarity with these structures is a critical component in preventing complications from these procedures, and failure to understand subtle variation can have disastrous results. The aim of this study was to characterize the anatomical variations (if any) of the cribriform plate using a large cadaveric sample set...

BACKGROUND: The questionnaire for the assessment of the voice selfconcept (FESS) contains three sub-scales indicating the personal relation with the own voice. The scales address the relationship with one's own voice, the awareness of the use of one's own voice, and the perception of the connection between voice and emotional changes. A comprehensive approach across the three scales supporting a simplified interpretation of the results was still missing. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The FESS questionnaire was used in a sample of 536 German teachers...
