International Consensus Statement on Allergy and Rhinology: Rhinosinusitis.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol. 2016 Feb;6 Suppl 1:S22-S209. doi: 10.1002/alr.21695.

International Forum in Allergy and Rhinology

Background: The body of knowledge regarding rhinosinusitis (RS) continues to expand, with rapid growth in number of publications, yet substantial variability in the quality of those presentations. In an effort to both consolidate and critically appraise this information, rhinologic experts from around the world have produced the International Consensus Statement on Allergy and Rhinology: Rhinosinusitis (ICAR:RS). Methods: Evidence-based reviews with recommendations (EBRRs) were developed for scores of topics, using previously reported methodology. Where existing evidence was insufficient for an EBRR, an evidence-based review (EBR) was produced. The sections were then synthesized and the entire manuscript was then reviewed by all authors for consensus. Results: The resulting ICAR:RS document addresses multiple topics in RS, including acute RS (ARS), chronic RS (CRS) with and without nasal polyps (CRSwNP and CRSsNP), recurrent acute RS (RARS), acute exacerbation of CRS (AECRS), and pediatric RS. Conclusion: As a critical review of the RS literature, ICAR:RS provides a thorough review of pathophysiology and evidence-based recommendations for medical and surgical treatment. It also demonstrates the significant gaps in our understanding of the pathophysiology and optimal management of RS. Too often the foundation upon which these recommendations are based is comprised of lower-level evidence. It is our hope that this summary of the evidence in RS will point out where additional research efforts may be directed

Adenoma of Basal Cells in Minor Salivary Glands. An Atypical Localization

An Orl Mex 2014;59:144-149.

Anales de Otorrinolaringología Mexicana

ABSTRACT The salivary glands are an uncommon site of neoplasms. The percentage of basal cell adenomas is only 0.2%-2% of all the salivary gland tumors. The basal cell adenoma is an epithelial neoplasm with a monomorphic histological aspect, with a predominance of basalod cells. The growth pattern could be solid, tubular, trabecular, membranous or analog der-mic. In our casuistry only we have one case with this histopathologic diagnosis; and with an atypical localization, because the most frequent localization is at the parotid gland. We only found in the bibliography six cases with these characteristics. The paper describes a case with atypical localization of an almost exclusively neoplasm of the parotid gland. Normally this is not included in the battery of the differenti Adenoma of Basal Cells in Minor Salivary Glands.

Uso de colorante intranasal para la medición del tiempo de aclaramiento mucociliar nasal: técnica novedosa con fluoresceína.

An Orl Mex 2013;58:67-72.

Anales de Otorrinolaringología Mexicana

Abstract Background Measurement of nasal mucociliary clearance time with saccharine test is the gold standard for experimental models. Despite all the benefits of such test, it depends on the cooperation from the individual being tested, and rests as well on subjective elements during exploration. Objective To determine the feasibility of use of intranasal colorant for the evaluation of nasal mucociliary clearance, and to describe a novel technique using topical fluorescein. Participants and method An experimental analytic transversal study in which 15 healthy individuals were tested for both Anderson’s saccharine test and the measurement of mucociliary clearance time with the application of sterile sodium fluorescein and visualizing the transport towards the oropharynx with endoscopes. Results The clearance time recorded for both test were similar (p = 0.88). The results of the saccharine test in our study group were similar to those already published.
