Background: Bitter (T2R) and sweet (T1R) taste receptors in the airway are important in innate immune defense, and variations in taste receptor functionality in one T2R (T2R38) correlate with disease status and disease severity in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Quinine is a bitter compound that is an agonist for several T2Rs also expressed on sinonasal cells, but not for T2R38. Because of this property, quinine may stimulate innate immune defense mechanisms in the airway, and functional differences in quinine perception may be reflective of disease status in CRS...

BACKGROUND: The impact of deployment to combat zones on the respiratory and sinonasal health of U.S. soldiers is an emerging public health concern. Retrospective studies have shown a correlation between deployment and development of post-deployment pathology, particularly of the aerodigestive system. Respiratory disease, including sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and asthma, are commonly reported in soldiers deployed to the Middle East and Southwest Asia. METHODS: Current literature pertaining to combat zone exposure and development of respiratory disease was retrieved using PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Google Scholar...

Rhinitis is an underestimated clinical condition, which has a considerable impact on the quality of life of the affected patients. The subject of this review focuses on three fundamental aspects: the development of knowledge concerning anatomic landmarks, the development of radiological imaging technology, and developments that can make a difference in the treatment of allergic rhinitis. The anatomical study of paranasal sinuses has been conducted since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Development of radiological equipment from the early 1900s has helped to improve information on the morphology of paranasal sinuses, sufficient to be considered valuable information regarding frontal anatomy and its variability...

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...

Let us start this first editorial of 2018 with wishing you all a marvelous year where most of your dreams come true. In the last years, the editors of Rhinology felt often very unhappy when again we had to refuse papers send to us for Rhinology. Unfortunately, every year we can only accept around 15% of the papers we receive. With pain in our hearts, we often have to refuse papers of good quality but just not innovative enough or with slight methodological imperfections. The editorial board of Rhinology recognized this feeling and we decided to start a new journal: Rhinology Online to have space for all those papers that are good but just do not make the cut for Rhinology...

INTRODUCTION: The anti-inflammatory effects of long term low dose macrolide therapy have shown benefit in the management of diffuse panbronchiolitis. Dramatic responses to macrolide in the upper airway are seen but our understanding of the patient phenotype predisposing to macrolide response in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is poor. METHODS: A case control study was performed in a tertiary level rhinology practice of consecutive chronic rhinosinusitis patients placed on a 3-month low dose macrolide therapy after failing at least 3 months of corticosteroid irrigation therapy post-endoscopic sinus surgery...

BACKGROUND: Addressing anterior maxillary sinus pathology endoscopically that is inaccessible with an endoscopic modified medial maxillectomy requires either a prelacrimal approach (PLA) or an endoscopic Denker's approach (EDA). The PLA involves removing the medial wall of the prelacrimal recess (PLR), which is the bone between the pyriform aperture (PA) and nasolacrimal duct (NLD), from nasal floor to orbital floor. The PLA preserves the inferior turbinate and NLD, whereas both are sacrificed during an EDA...
