Comparative in vitro activities of amoxicillin-clavulanate against aerobic and anaerobic bacteria isolated from antral puncture specimens from patients with sinusitis. (1/679)

By an agar dilution method, the antimicrobial susceptibilities of antral sinus puncture isolates were studied. Pneumococci were generally susceptible to amoxicillin, azithromycin, and clarithromycin, but 17% of pneumococcal isolates were resistant to cefuroxime. Haemophilus influenzae isolates were resistant to amoxicillin and clarithromycin. beta-Lactamase production occurred in 69% of Prevotella species. One-third of Peptostreptococcus magnus isolates were resistant to azithromycin and clarithromycin. Cefuroxime had limited activity against Prevotella species and P. magnus. Levofloxacin was active against most isolates except peptostreptococci. Amoxicillin-clavulanate was active against all isolates, with the MIC at which 90% of the isolates were inhibited being < or = 1 microgram/ml.  (+info)

Nasal nitric oxide concentration in paranasal sinus inflammatory diseases. (2/679)

In normal upper airways, nitric oxide is generated by the paranasal sinus epithelium and then diffuses into the nasal cavities. This study examined whether or not nasal NO concentration is affected by paranasal sinus inflammatory diseases. The influence of obstruction (nasal polyposis) and/or inflammation (allergy or chronic sinusitis) of the paranasal sinuses on nasal NO concentration was evaluated in nasal allergic (n=7 patients) or nonallergic (n=20) polyposis, nonallergic chronic sinusitis (n=10) and Kartagener's syndrome (n=6) and compared with control subjects (n=42). A score of alteration of the paranasal sinus (number of altered and occluded sinuses) was determined by a computed tomography scan. The nasal NO concentration in nasal nonallergic polyposis (150+/-20 parts per billion (ppb)) was significantly decreased compared with both controls (223+/-6 ppb, p=0.01) and polyposis with allergy (272+/-28 ppb, p<0.0001). In each group, the nasal NO concentration was inversely correlated with the extent of tomodensitometric alteration of the paranasal sinuses. In Kartagener's syndrome, the nasal NO concentration (14+/-2 ppb) was drastically decreased compared with all other groups, despite the presence of open paranasal sinuses. Thus, the nasal NO concentration in patients with nasal polyposis appeared to be dependent on both the allergic status and the degree of obstruction of the paranasal sinuses.  (+info)

IL-12 receptor beta2 and CD30 expression in paranasal sinus mucosa of patients with chronic sinusitis. (3/679)

The aetiology of chronic sinusitis is still poorly understood. The expression of T-helper 1 (Th1) and T-helper 2 (Th2) cell markers, interleukin (IL)-12 receptor beta2 subunit (IL-12Rbeta2) messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) and CD30, respectively, were investigated in the paranasal sinus mucosa of patients with chronic sinusitis in an attempt to elucidate the involvement of Th1 and Th2 cells in this disease. Anterior ethmoidal mucosae were surgically obtained from two groups of patients with chronic sinusitis: those who had allergic rhinitis (allergic group, n=11) and those without allergy (nonallergic group, n=11). IL-12Rbeta2 mRNA was quantified by means of the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, and CD30-positive cells were examined immunohistochemically. Both IL-12Rbeta2 mRNA and CD30 were expressed in the sinus mucosa of the allergic and nonallergic groups. The proportion of mononuclear cells which were CD30-positive in the sinus mucosa was significantly greater in the allergic than in the nonallergic group. The expression levels of IL-12Rbeta2 mRNA were virtually equivalent in both groups. These results suggest a T-helper 2-dominated mucosal reaction in the allergic compared to the nonallergic group, and indicate T-helper 1 activity in the sinus mucosa of both groups. The ubiquity of T-helper 1 cells suggests that they play a role in maintaining local mucosal defences against foreign antigens, which continually enter the upper respiratory tract.  (+info)

A possible mechanism of primary ciliary dyskinesia: a case of a segmental defect in ciliary microtubules. (4/679)

We report here a 13-year-old woman with cough, sputum and fever. The patient had both chronic sinusitis and bronchitis. Chest X-ray and computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed mucous bronchial filling and bronchiectasia in bronchi of bilateral lower lobes, right middle lobe and left upper lobe. Aerosol inhalation scintigraphy with 99mTechnetium demonstrated delays of the discharged tracer. On the basis of these findings, primary ciliary dyskinesia was suggested. This was confirmed by the findings from nasal biopsy with transmission electron microscopy where all of the microtubules were segmentally defected near the basal body in the cilia. On the basis of these findings, we diagnosed the patient with primary ciliary dyskinesia which may be due, at least in part, to segmental defect of ciliary microtubules.  (+info)

A locus for primary ciliary dyskinesia maps to chromosome 19q. (5/679)

Primary ciliary dyskinesia is an autosomal recessive condition characterised by chronic sinusitis, bronchiectasis, and subfertility. Situs inversus occurs in 50% of cases (Kartagener syndrome). It has an estimated incidence of 1 in 20 000 live births. The clinical phenotype is caused by defective ciliary function associated with a range of ultrastructural abnormalities including absent dynein arms, absent radial spokes, and disturbed ciliary orientation. The molecular genetic basis is unknown. A genome scan was performed in five Arabic families. Using GENEHUNTER, a maximal multipoint lod score (HLOD) of 4.4 was obtained on chromosome 19q13.3-qter at alpha (proportion of linked families) = 0.7. A 15 cM critical region is defined by recombinations at D19S572 and D19S218. These data provide significant evidence for a PCD locus on chromosome 19q and confirm locus heterogeneity.  (+info)

Invasive aspergillosis in a patient with MELAS syndrome. (6/679)

Invasive infection with the opportunistic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus predominantly affects people with impaired cell mediated immunity. The case of a 31 year old woman with no identified cause for immunosuppression who presented with severe refractory aspergillosis of the paranasal sinuses is reported. She subsequently developed clinical and molecular evidence of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy with lactic acidosis and stroke-like events (MELAS) syndrome. It is proposed that MELAS syndrome may represent an unusual risk factor for the development of invasive aspergillosis and mechanisms are supported by which mitochondrial dysfunction may predispose to this.  (+info)

The role of cytokines in rhinosinusitis. (7/679)

Since the last decade, new insights into inflammatory processes have become possible by investigating the pattern of cytokines in acute and chronic sinus diseases. This review aims to update and discuss the findings of in vitro and in vivo studies concerning the role of cytokines in sinusitis and nasal polyposis. The proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-1beta, interleukin-6 and the neutrophil-chemoattractant interleukin-8 may play a major role in acute sinusitis, as shown in viral and allergic rhinitis. In chronic sinusitis interleukin-3 dominates the cytokine profiles, giving support to a variety of inflammatory cells. Interleukin-5 is a key protein in the pathogenesis of nasal polyposis. Activation and survival of eosinophils in nasal polyps are thought to be regulated by interleukin-5. Further investigation of cytokine expression patterns in inflammatory sinus diseases will lead to a better understanding of their pathogenesis and to a development of new therapeutic modality.  (+info)

Report of successful prolonged antifungal therapy for refractory allergic fungal sinusitis. (8/679)

Allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) is an increasingly recognized cause of refractory chronic sinusitis in the young immunocompetent host, analogous to allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), a related process in the lower respiratory tract. Most patients experience remittent disease despite corticosteroid therapy and aggressive sinus surgery. Because controlled trials have shown adjunctive antifungal therapy to be of benefit in treating ABPA, long-term oral itraconazole was used in a young man with remittent AFS, which was able to break the cycle of relapsing disease.  (+info)

Acute rhinosinusitis is one of the most common conditions that physicians treat in ambulatory practice. Although often caused by viruses, it sometimes is caused by bacteria, a condition that is called acute bacterial rhinosinusitis. The signs and symptoms of acute bacterial rhinosinusitis and prolonged viral upper respiratory infection are similar, which makes accurate clinical diagnosis difficult. Because two thirds of patients with acute bacterial rhinosinusitis improve without antibiotic treatment and most patients with viral upper respiratory infection improve within seven d antibiotic therapy should be reserved for use in patients who have had symptoms for more than seven days and meet clinical criteria. Four signs and symptoms are the most helpful in predicting acute bacterial rhinosinusitis: purulent nasal discharge, maxillary tooth or facial pain (especially unilateral), unilateral maxillary sinus tenderness, and worsening symptoms after initial improvement. Sinus radiography and ultrasonography
Sinusitis, or a sinus infection, occurs when the sinuses and nasal passages become inflamed. If you or your child is diagnosed with sinusitis, the infection does not need to be treated with antibiotics unless you or your child has acute bacterial sinusitis, which is caused by bacteria. Acute bacterial sinusitis can last up to 4 weeks and subacute bacterial sinusitis can last 4 to 12 weeks, occurring less than 4 times per year.. Acute viral sinusitis, caused by a virus, typically lasts for less than 4 weeks and occurs less than 3 times per year. Acute viral sinusitis usually occurs after having an upper respiratory infection.. Chronic sinusitis typically lasts more than 4 weeks and occurs more than 4 times per year. If you are diagnosed with chronic sinusitis, you should visit a specialist for evaluation. Chronic sinusitis can be caused by nasal polyps or tumors, allergies, or respiratory tract infections (viral, bacterial, or fungal), among other reasons.. ...
Treatment for chronic sinus infection symptoms Antibiotics and over-the-counter decongestants are widely used fro treating chronic sinus infection symptoms. Antibiotics may not be effective in chronic sinusitis because they target bacteria, not fungi. The antibiotic treatment usually takes 3 - 4 weeks. The over-the-counter medications may offer some relief from pain, but they do not have any effect on the inflammation. Clean and drain sinuses works in some cases. Oral pills may provide relief from stuffy nose and some nasal sprays can help in relieving chronic sinus infection symptoms caused by allergies. Patients of chronic sinus infection symptoms can find relief through Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS). This is a noninvasive outpatient procedure. The study results suggest that ESS helps to reduce dependence on antibiotics and antihistamines for managing the symptoms. Deviated septum and nasal obstruction may be repaired surgically to prevent chronic sinus infection symptoms ...
Your doctor has suggested you have functional endoscopic sinus surgery as part of your treatment. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has become the accepted standard approach and technique when surgical treatment of sinusitis is indicated.
Have you ever had an exceptionally severe or prolonged cold or allergy crisis? If so, there is a good chance that it was sinusitis. This number could be significantly higher since the symptoms of bacterial sinusitis often mimic those of a cold or allergy, and many patients never see a doctor for proper diagnosis and antibiotic treatment.. When acute sinusitis turns into chronic sinusitis. When you frequently suffer from sinusitis, and the infection lasts for three months or more, it could be chronic sinusitis whose symptoms may be less severe than those of acute sinusitis.. In chronic sinusitis, irreversible inflammatory changes may appear in the mucosa of the nose and perinasal sinuses, which may require surgery for repair.. Fungal allergies can also cause sinusitis. These pictures usually manifest as a predominantly chronic infection, rather than acute.. Prevention Of Sinusitis. As always, prevention is better than cure. To avoid sinusitis during a cold or allergic crisis, keep your sinuses ...
The purpose of this key action statement is to guide the selection of antimicrobial therapy once the diagnosis of acute bacterial sinusitis has been made. The microbiology of acute bacterial sinusitis was determined nearly 30 years ago through direct maxillary sinus aspiration in children with compatible signs and symptoms. The major bacterial pathogens recovered at that time were Streptococcus pneumoniae in approximately 30% of children and nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis in approximately 20% each.16,40 Aspirates from the remaining 25% to 30% of children were sterile.. Maxillary sinus aspiration is rarely performed at the present time unless the course of the infection is unusually prolonged or severe. Although some authorities have recommended obtaining cultures from the middle meatus to determine the cause of a maxillary sinus infection, there are no data in children with acute bacterial sinusitis that have compared such cultures with cultures of a maxillary sinus ...

Although having acute sinusitis always causes discomfort, the condition usually does not take long for it to clear up. It is believed that the body immune system is strong enough to fight the infection on its own and only requires a few days for it to clear this condition. However, if the infection takes longer for it to come to an end, seeking a doctors advice is always the best option. During diagnosis, the doctor is usually able to distinguish between the various causes of acute sinusitis by mixing the patients rhinosinusitis (watery fluids that usually drains out of the nose when one has acute sinusitis) with a Gram stain. For viral acute sinusitis, the bacteria present in the nasal fluid are often seen in association with several clusters of epithelial cells while in bacterial acute sinusitis, the bacteria will be seen admixed with polymophonuclear leocucytes. After determining this, the doctor will be in a better position to prescribe a proper course of treatment that could end this ...
Eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis (ECRS), a subgroup of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, is recognized as a refractory eosinophilic disorder characterized by both upper and lower airway inflammation. In some severe cases, disease control is poor, likely due to local steroid insensitivity. In this study, we focused on protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), a key factor regulating glucocorticoid receptor (GR) nuclear translocation, and examined its association with local responses to corticosteroids in eosinophilic airway inflammation. Our results indicated reduced responses to corticosteroids in nasal epithelial cells from ECRS patients with asthma, which were also associated with decreased PP2A mRNA expression. Eosinophil peroxidase stimulates elevated PP2A phosphorylation levels, reducing PP2A protein expression and activity. In addition, mRNA levels of inflammatory mediators (TSLP, IL-25, IL-33, CCL4, CCL5, CCL11, and CCL26) associated with eosinophilic airway inflammation in epithelial cells were

Localization of MUC8 protein was sought by immunohistochemical analysis. Messenger RNA encoding MUC8 was detected in human sinus mucosa. The level of MUC8 ...
Review question We reviewed the evidence for the benefits and harms of systemic (given by mouth) or topical (given by nose) antibiotics for people with chronic rhinosinusitis.. Background Chronic rhinosinusitis is a common condition that is defined as inflammation of the nose and paranasal sinuses (a group of air-filled spaces behind the nose, eyes and cheeks). Patients experience at least two or more of the following symptoms for at least 12 weeks: blocked nose, discharge from their nose or runny nose, pain or pressure in their face and/or a reduced sense of smell (hyposmia). Some people will also have nasal polyps, which are grape-like swellings of the normal nasal lining inside the nasal passage and sinuses.. Study characteristics We included five randomised controlled trials (RCTs) with a total of 293 participants. The studies were small (43 to 79 participants). Four recruited adults and the fifth children. Three studies only included people with chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps, ...

Title of study: Subcutaneous Xolair (omalizumab) for treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRS/NP). Objectives: To compare the efficacy of subcutaneous Xolair (omalizumab) to placebo in treatment of CRS/NP in terms of: (a) the effect on polypoid mucosal thickening in the anterior ethmoid and maxillary sinuses as measured on sinus CT scan, (b) the effect on volume of polypoid mucosal tissue in the nose and sinuses on rhinoscopic examination, and (c) the effect on CRS symptoms as measured by total symptom score.. Study Rationale: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a persistent inflammatory condition with periodic flares, affecting 14% of the United States population with an estimated annual health care expenditure of $3.4 billion. CRS patients with nasal polyposis (NP) are the most difficult to treat and the most likely to undergo sinus surgery. Tissue eosinophilia is the hallmark feature and is associated with specific IgE to inhalants, elevated total serum immunoglobulin E ...
Acute sinusitis affects millions of persons in the United States every year and is among the most common reasons for physician visits, prompting over 3 million visits annually (1). The more accurate term for this condition is acute rhinosinusitis, because symptoms involve both the nasal cavity and the sinuses. For simplicity, this review uses the term sinusitis for rhinosinusitis. There are 4 pairs of air-filled paranasal sinuses: the frontal, maxillary, ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses. Acute sinusitis typically occurs in the maxillary sinuses (Figure). Sinusitis is characterized as acute when the duration of symptoms is shorter than 4 weeks, subacute when the duration is from 4 weeks to 12 weeks, and chronic when the duration is more than 12 weeks. Sinusitis seems to be due to congestion and blockage of the nasal passages, usually in response to viral infection or allergic rhinitis but occasionally to other stimuli. The paranasal sinuses become inflamed, and mucus cannot drain properly, ...

BACKGROUND: Acute sinusitis is a common reason for primary care visits. It causes significant symptoms and often results in time off work and school.. OBJECTIVES: We examined whether intranasal corticosteroids (INCS) are effective in relieving symptoms of acute sinusitis.. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library Issue 4, 2006), MEDLINE (January 1966 to December 2006), EMBASE (1990 to June 2006) and bibliographies of included studies.. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were considered eligible if they compared INCS treatment to placebo treatment of a control group for acute sinusitis; acute sinusitis was defined by clinical diagnosis and confirmed by radiological evidence or by nasal endoscopy. The primary outcome was the proportion of participants with either resolution or improvement of symptoms. Secondary outcomes were any adverse events that required discontinuation of treatment, drop-outs before the end of ...
Current treatment guidelines for community-acquired respiratory tract infections no longer depend solely on the characteristics of the patient and the clinical syndrome, but on those of the offending pathogen, including presence and level of antimicrobial resistance. The most common respiratory tract pathogens known to cause acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (ABRS) and community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) include Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae. The prevalence of antimicrobial resistance, especially b-lactum and macrolide resistance, among S pneumoniae and H influenzae has increased dramatically during the past 2 decades, diminishing the activity of many older antimicrobials against resistant organisms. A pharmacokinetically enhanced formulation of amoxicillin/clavulanate has been developed to fulfill the need for an oral b-lactam antimicrobial that achieves a greater time that the serum drug concentration exceeds the minimum inhibitory concentration (T \textgreater MIC) of ...

A total of 778 patients with CRS were enrolled between January 2001 and April 2009 after electing ESS. For the purposes of this analysis, patients with nasal polyposis, history of prior sinus surgery, or follow-up ,6 months were excluded. Final study patients were categorized as low-stage CT CRS (Lund-Mackay ≤3; n = 17) and high-stage CT CRS (Lund-Mackay ,3; n = 207). Primary outcome measures included two disease-specific QoL instruments: the Rhinosinusitis Disability Index and the Chronic Sinusitis Survey. ...
Sinusitis. Sinusitis is an inflammation or infection of the sinuses, the air-filled chambers in the skull that are located around the nose. Symptoms of sinusitis include thick nasal discharge, facial pain or pressure, fever, and reduced sense of smell. Depending on how long these symptoms last, sinusitis is classified as acute, subacute, chronic, or recurrent. Viruses are the most common cause of acute sinusitis, but bacteria are responsible for most of the serious cases.. Non-Drug Treatment of Sinusitis. Home remedies such as saline (salt) washes or sprays are helpful for removing mucus and relieving congestion. Steam inhalation is also beneficial. Patients with sinusitis should drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Water, which helps lubricate the mucous membranes, is the best fluid to drink.. Drug Treatment of Sinusitis. Medication depends on the type of sinusitis and its cause. Non-prescription pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can help mild-to-moderate pain symptoms. ...

Acute sinusitis can show up with either persistent (the most common form) or severe symptoms. Patients with persistent symptoms of acute sinusitis are differentiated from patients with simple colds solely on the basis of the duration of the symptoms. A simple cold usually lasts 5 to 7 days, and, even if symptoms linger, there should be improvement by 10 days. Cold symptoms that show no improvement after 10 days may be acute bacterial sinusitis.. The symptoms of cold viruses are indistinguishable from acute bacterial sinusitis. They usually include either nasal discharge (thin or thick; white, yellow, or green) or a cough (dry or wet) during both the day and the night. Some children also have bad breath, and/or swelling and darkening around the eyes. Complaints of a headache and facial pain are unusual until adolescence.. The second, less common appearance of acute sinusitis is a cold that seems more severe than usual. The severity is defined by the combination of a high fever (higher than ...

Chronic sinusitis and GERD. chronic sinusitis is a common clinical condition. There is increasing evidence from observational studies that both paediatric and adult patients with chronic sinusitis frequently have associated GORD and EOR and that these patients may benefit from medical antireflux therapy. GORD and EOR may contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic sinusitis by causing sinonasal congestion, compromised sinus drainage, and inflammation.29 Otitis media Otitis media with effusion (OME) is a prevalent condition and the most common cause of hearing loss in childhood. Recently, Tasker et al reported high concentrations (up to a 1000-fold greater than serum levels) of pepsin/pepsinogen in 59 of 65 middle ear effusion samples from children with OME. The authors concluded that reflux of gastric juice into the middle ear may be the primary factor in the initiation of OME in children. Using upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and 24 hour pH monitoring, we prospectively assessed the coexistence ...
Take a look at these simple guidelines to help you differentiate a sinusitis from a common cold: 1. Duration of the condition Monitoring how long a common cold lasts is the most perceptible way to differentiate it from a sinusitis. The duration of a common cold actually varies but it usually lasts for not more than 10 days. On the other hand, a sinus infection lasts for approximately 10 to 14 days or more. Specifically, the symptoms of an acute sinusitis last for less than 4 weeks while those of a chronic sinusitis last for more than 8 weeks. In case the sinusitis recurs for about 3 or more acute episodes in a year, it is also classified as chronic ...

If a person are suffering from a bad cough and your favorite cold medicine treatment does not seem to work at all, next what you are suffering from might be a sinusitis house remedies is due to sinusitis.. Simple sinus inflammation shouldnt be taken as a given as this usually comes with contamination. There are actually two basic kinds of sinus bacterial infections, acute and also chronic sinusitis.. Avoid exposure to chemicals, smoke and other toxic irritants -Avoiding flights -Avoid boating in chlorinated pools for years -Moisturizing the nose together with saline sprays -Avoid water diving -Avoid meals that may cause allergic reactions. There are some way of life modifications that may be required as well, to treatment and prevent the occurrence of sinus infections and sinusitis cough, these might include:. Mold -House dirt -Pets -Mites -Cockroaches Most experts believe that an infection is not the principal cause of chronic sinusitis fever. However frequent attacks of acute sinusitis may ...
To better understand why a sinus infection can take place, one must know what are the causes. Sinuses are the small, empty holes in your bony skull. These caverns are lined by mucus and make the connection to the nasal passages. Some people have them even at birth, whereas other grow in time, in the first twenty years of your life. Those small holes are affected by sinus infection. Sinusitis is the term that is given to a sinus infection. When those sinuses are infected, the sinuses are swollen, red and very tender. Mucus is also a characteristic of a sinus infection. If you take things technical, any cold can also be a case of a sinus infection, cause by a virus. However, when doctors diagnose you with a sinus infection like sinusitis they actually refer to an infection caused by a bacteria. There are three types of sinus infection that are caused by a bacteria. Acute, subacute and chronic sinus infection caused by a bacteria are the three types of sinus infection that have different causes and ...
What are sinus infection symptoms? Most of the times sinus infection symptoms start with a blocked nose or runny nose, flu, cough, headache, sore throat, pain around the nasal area, loss of taste or smell etc. Usual symptoms also include swelling around the nose and blockage of the nasal channels. Pain in the cheek or face, greenish discharge can also be found in some cases. Normally sinus infection symptoms will go away within three weeks. If it persists longer, it is acute sinusitis. When this continues for more than three months, it is known as chronic sinusitis. Sinus infections are caused mostly by viruses, bacteria and fungus. Environmental pollution, allergens cause non-infectious sinusitis. Severe headache and painful red eyes and sometimes with double vision are known sinus infection symptoms. In acute case temporary vision loss is also possible. Fatigue, fever and loss of smell or taste are found in many other cases if the infection is caused by bacteria. Bacterial infections are cured ...
Introduction: Olfactory loss in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis has been measured by different methods. However, the results have been variable, and it is not clear whether endoscopic sinus surgery significantly improves olfactory function. This study was performed to evaluate the influence of endoscopic sinus surgery on olfactory function in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. Materials and Methods: In this prospective analytic study, 73 patients (mean age, 39.63±12.94 years) with a diagnosis of polyps and sinusitis during 2011 were studied. The olfaction test was performed with three solutions; one with no odor (water) and two with phenylethyl alcohol (50% and 90% dilution, respectively). The patients olfaction state were graded as no olfaction, or low, moderate or good olfaction before and 1 and 3 months after surgery, and was given scores between 0 and 3 and evaluated quantitatively. Results: Right-side olfaction was improved in 68.5% and left side in 67.1% of patients. Mean olfaction

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a confusing disease for both allergists and otorhino- laryngologists, partly because of its poorly understood pathophysiology and partly because of its limited treatment options. Several recent reports have provided evidence for a better under- standing of the etiology and the relationship of CRS to airborne fungi-especially to Alternaria. First, the development of novel methods enables detection of certain fungi in mucus from the nasal and paranasal sinus cavities. Second, a non-IgE-mediated immunological mechanism for reactivity of patients with CRS to certain common fungi has been described. Third, these fungi ...
Upwards of 76 percent of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis experienced significant quality of life improvements after undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery, according to new research in the January 2010 issue of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery.
When treating sinus infections (sinusitis) caused by bacteria, the traditional duration of therapy is between 10 and 14 days. In this randomized, double-blind study, 5 days of 750 milligrams of levofloxacin given once daily will be compared to 10 days of 500 milligrams of levofloxacin in the treatment of non-hospitalized adult patients who have acute bacterial sinusitis. To prevent the study doctor, study staff and patients from knowing which study drug they are taking, all study drug will manufactured to look the same and patients on the 5-day regimen will be given placebo for the last 5 days of their participation in the study. Patients will have a sinus specimen collected at the first visit. Safety evaluations will be conducted. The objective of the study is to demonstrate that, in the treatment of acute bacterial sinus infections, a 5-day course of 750 milligrams of levofloxacin given once daily is at least as effective as a 10-day course of 500 milligrams of levofloxacin given once daily ...
The symptoms of sinusitis, better known as sinus infection the symptoms, which occurs when a sinusitis - better known under the name sinus infection -, with different symptoms go hand in hand. Runny nose and nasal but usually include. But also headaches and in some cases, even dental pain may indicate a sinusitis. The acute sinus infection subsides generally within a few days back. This is not the case, a doctor should be consulted be sure as the sinusitis can be otherwise also chronic. This applies of course to avoid it, and a visit to the doctor too much is not enough this better than one. Only if clarifies, the form is the paranasal sinus inflammation and also, which it was born, a successful treatment can be initiate. At each acute sinusitis it comes first, accordingly to reduce the inflammation and fade away. A nasal spray can support work, but also means plant-based are used again and again. The severity of the nose side caves inflammation is decisive. The patient suffers from severe pain ...
The term sinusitis has now been officially replaced by rhinosinusitis in the Otolaryngology literature. Rhinosinusitis is divided into two main categories: acute (sinus infection lasting less than four weeks) and chronic (sinus infection lasting greater than twelve weeks). Sub-acute rhinosinusitis refers to a sinus infection lasting between four and twelve weeks.. Rhinosinusitis usually begins after obstruction of the sinus drainage pathways secondary to a viral URTI, or some other cause, resulting in stagnation of secretions within the sinus. Bacteria from the nasal cavity invade the mucus filled sinuses if the obstruction does not resolve within a few days. If the infection does not resolve within a few weeks, the mucus membrane will undergo polypoid change causing further obstruction. The flora will gradually change from one of acute sinusitis (S. pneumo, H.influenzae and Moraxella) to one of chronic sinusitis (anaerobes, gram negative enterococci). Once the infection has lasted greater ...

to the editor: Having just put together a lecture on acute rhinosinusitis, I eagerly opened the January 1, 2001 issue of American Family Physician to read Adult Rhinosinusitis: Diagnosis and Management.1 I was hoping to find validation of the conclusions I had drawn from my own weeks of study and synthesis on the subject. I also hoped to find new insights from an experienced author on the difficult issue of how we should approach patients with signs and symptoms that may be either viral or bacterial.. However, I was disappointed to find a review that relied heavily on the ear, nose, and throat and allergy literature and nearly ignored the research that has fueled multiple meta-analyses and new general practice studies of acute rhinosinusitis during the past few years.. To be specific, Dr. Osguthorpes discussion of the acute variety of rhinosinusitis fails to recognize studies that have reported which signs and symptoms have statistically significant correlations with bacterial infection and ...
A new treatment for chronic sinusitis has been identified by Summit Ear, Nose & Throat in an outpatient setting called FinESSâ„¢ Sinus Treatment.. FinESS can be classified as a new balloon sinuplasty technique, which is less invasive than the traditional sinus surgery. The technique breaks the cycle of chronic sinusitis with immediate relief to provide lasting results.. In this technique, a small balloon is inserted into the patients sinus passages. The balloon is inflated, deflated, and then removed.. This treatment option is considered by many members of the medical fraternity as a potential breakthrough for treating chronic sinusitis (CRS).. ...
In ARS, it is common to find high IL-8 (which is the neutrophils main chemotactic agent), TNF-alpha and total protein levels. Neutrophil and T lymphocyte levels are also usually increased (both in the epithelium and in the lamina propria). There is more information available on the existence of inflammation in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) with nasal polyposis. Among other findings, there is one that is particularly interesting: the persistence of high eosinophil levels. Numerous inflammation mediators have been found in the sinonasal mucosa of subjects with CRS and nasal polyposis which may play an important role and may be caused both by specific substances and by other non-specific factors (cold, pollution,…). Glandular secretion is an important component of inflammation, manifesting as rhinorrhoea, and is regulated not only by inflammatory regulators but also by the epithelial and inflammatory cells themselves and by classic neurotransmitters. A landmark study performed by Roca Ferrer et ...
Acute bacterial sinusitis is an infection of the sinus cavities caused by bacteria. It typically preceded by an upper respiratory infection/cold, allergy exacerbation, or by general environmental irritation. Typical treatment includes an antibiotic after appropriate diagnosis by an Otolaryngologist. With inflammation, the nose and sinuses become unable to drain appropriately. Symptoms can include purulent nasal drainage, nasal obstruction, and facial pain/pressure. The sinus infection is likely bacterial if infection lasts longer than 10 days. Chronic sinusitis occurs with symptoms and signs that persist longer than three months. Symptoms may be less severe than acute sinusitis.. Sinusitis Treatments:. ...
Patients who are found to have a chronic sinus issue may or may not be advised to try a surgical treatment soon after their consultation. Two of the most common sinus procedures that we offer for chronic sinusitis at our Seattle area practice are balloon sinuplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery.. A balloon sinuplasty may be the first intervention our ear, nose and throat doctors suggest since it does not involve any incisions or cutting of the nasal bones. During a balloon sinuplasty, Dr. Ummat uses a flexible balloon catheter to open up the nasal passages and sinuses in order to relieve the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. The balloon is inserted into the nasal passages while deflated and is then slowly inflated to allow mucus buildup to drain out of the sinuses. The system is flushed with saline to remove buildup and provide relief. While the results of this procedure may not be permanent, many patients experience long-term relief with little to no downtime.. Other patients may need surgery to ...
UPDATED October 2018) Probiotics and sinusitis treatment go hand in hand. In the last few years researchers found that one probiotic (beneficial bacteria) that chronic sinusitis sufferers lack and that treats and cures sinusitis is Lactobacillus sakei. And for many, major improvement may take only days!. The researchers Abreu et al found in their 2012 study that not only do sinusitis sufferers lack L. sakei, they have too much of some other bacteria, and they also dont have the bacteria diversity in their sinuses that healthy people without sinusitis have. In other words, the sinus microbiome (microbial community) is out of whack (dysbiosis). A number of studies since then also found that there is a depletion of some bacterial species, and an increase in abundance of other species in those with chronic sinusitis.. Luckily Lactobacillus sakei is found in some foods (such as some brands of live fermented kimchi), some sausage starter cultures (such as B-2), and recently in some probiotic ...
