Importance: Several identified factors have raised questions concerning the quality of care for endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS), including the presence of large geographic variation in the rates and extent of surgery, poorly defined indications, and lack of ESS-specific quality metrics. Combined with the risk of major complications, ESS represents a high-value target for quality improvement. Objective: To evaluate differences in surgeon-specific performance for ESS using a risk-adjusted, 5-year ESS revision rate as a quality metric...

BACKGROUND: Olfactory neuroblastoma is a rare malignancy of the nasal cavity in dogs that is thought to arise from specialised sensory neuroendocrine olfactory cells derived from the neural crest. CASE REPORT: An 8-year-old dog was presented for reclusiveness and pacing. On CT and MRI, a contract-enhancing mass was disclosed within the rostral fossa, extending caudally from the cribriform plate into the left nasal sinus. Surgical excision was performed and the diagnosis was histological grade III (Hyams grading scheme) olfactory neuroblastoma...

OBJECTIVES: The infraorbital canal (IOC), which runs in the roof of the maxillary sinus, is a useful anatomical landmark for the infraorbital nerve (ION) on computed tomography (CT) images. Enlargement of the IOC on CT images is thought to be a pathological state that usually affects the ION. However, we have frequently observed enlargement of the IOC in patients with a history of radical surgery of the maxillary sinus: so-called Caldwell-Luc (CL) surgery. In this study, the size of the IOC of the maxillary sinus was compared between patients with a history of CL surgery (post-CL IOCs) and those with no history of CL surgery (control IOCs)...

Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTCL) is a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This neoplasm is more prevalent in regions of Asia and Latin America and most commonly involves the sinonasal tract, presenting with signs of nasal obstruction, epistaxis, or sinus infection. It is a locally destructive and angioinvasive neoplasm. The treatment of ENKTCL is dependent on the extent of the tumor. For localized disease, the treatment is chemoradiation. For disseminated disease, treatment is mainly chemotherapy-based...

Teoman Dal, Seçil Bahar
In endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) synechiae formation and ostial stenosis are frequently encountered. This is not uncommon after frontal recess and ostium interventions due to the narrow recess and difficult anatomy of the region. The goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the new cross-linked hyaluronan gel-PureRegen(®) Gel Sinus-on wound healing and synechiae prevention in endoscopic frontal sinus surgery. The study consists of two groups of patients who underwent ESS, including frontal sinus surgery...

BACKGROUND: Different from rhinoliths, the paranasal gossypiboma is a foreign body, such as a surgical sponge, left in the nasal cavity. It is a rare, frequently misdiagnosed disease that has rarely been reported. We summarize its clinical characteristics, management, and possible risk factors. METHODOLOGY: We reviewed medical records of confirmed paranasal gossypibomas at a tertiary medical center between 2005 and 2015. Clinical symptoms, age, sex, anatomic sites, endoscopic photography, computed tomography, intraoperative findings, and past medical history were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Present clinical practice broadly relies on off-the-shelf allogeneic, xenogeneic or synthetic bone biomaterials in support of sinus augmentation. Also, recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 in an absorbable collagen sponge carrier (rhBMP-2/ACS) has been shown to support clinically relevant bone formation when used to augment the maxillary sinus. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate local bone formation/dental implant osseointegration following implantation of two particulate bone biomaterials using the mini-pig sinus augmentation model...

PURPOSE: Hair has been identified as the causative agent of Pilonidal Sinus Disease (PSD). Stiffer, dark hair as well as hairiness has been postulated as causative factors. Astonishingly, despite the early clinical significance of this condition (Hodges in Boston Med Surg J 2:485-486, 1880), macroscopic and microscopic examinations of hair inside pilonidal sinus cavities have been scarce. The purpose of this study was to study the morphological aspects of the hair found in PSD in order to determine the origin of the hair...

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has considerably evolved over the past 20 years while minimally-invasive surgery also applies to sinus procedures. Development of new technologies combined with better knowledge of risks has allowed surgeons to achieve improved results in their FESS indications. One of the most difficult areas to visualize using the exclusive endoscopic approach is still the anterior recess of the maxillary sinus. Hence, external approaches, such as the Caldwell-Luc procedure, are still used by many surgeons to ensure visual control of this area in diseases such as fungal balls, mucoceles, inverted papilloma and other tumors...

Dural arteriovenous fistula(dAVF)is relatively rare, and its etiology remains uncertain. Generally, dAVF is thought to be acquired and has been reported to develop secondary to sinus thrombosis, head injury, infection, and surgery. We report a rare case of dAVF in the anterior cranial fossa that developed remote from the craniotomy site after surgery. A 52-year-old man underwent surgery for hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage 4 years prior. Perioperative imaging modalities demonstrated no abnormal vascular malformation except for an un-ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis with and without nasal polyps (CRSw/sNP) are common conditions decreasing health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Individual symptoms capable of predicting outcome after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) are poorly defined, and the indirect costs of CRS is rarely reported in Europe. METHODOLOGY: Patients with CRSw/sNP admitted for ESS were prospectively enrolled. Patients completed the 22 Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22), the short-form 36-item questionnaire (SF-36), a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and reported CRS-related absenteeism pre- and post-operatively...
