A six-month analysis of frontal sinus drainage pathway in patients with frontal sinusitis after balloon sinuplasty.

Acta Otolaryngol 2017 Sep 16;137(9):968-974. Epub 2017 Mar 16.

a Department of Otolaryngology , Division of Cranio- Maxillo- Facial Surgery, Military Institute of Medicine , Warsaw , Poland.

Background: The balloon catheter has been used for a decade to dilate paranasal sinus outflow tracts. The question is: how wide and how durable is the dilation of drainage pathways in patients in long-term observations after this procedure?

Objective: The objective of our study was to observe the changes occurring in the frontal sinus drainage pathway (FSDP) in patients with frontal sinusitis at least 6 months after surgery using balloon catheters in an isolated procedure.

Materials And Methods: We analyzed and measured the FSDP width on computed tomography (CT) of 23 images before and after the use of balloon catheters. Read More

Safe treatment of ethmoid sinusitis utilizing minimally invasive ethmoid punch sinusotomy in chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis patients.

Laryngoscope 2017 06 14;127(6):1268-1275. Epub 2017 Feb 14.

Division of Rhinology, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, U.S.A.

Objectives/hypothesis: Current rhinologic practice is devoid of minimally invasive procedures dedicated to the treatment of ethmoid sinusitis to improve ventilation and topical drug delivery. We have recently described a handheld spiral punch to create minimally invasive ethmoid punch sinusotomy (EPS) sites into the ethmoid bulla and basal lamella, which significantly increased irrigant access to the ethmoid sinuses in cadaver models. Here, we conducted a clinical feasibility study to determine the initial safety evaluation of EPS in chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis (CRSsNP) patients with active ethmoid disease. Read More

Neurologic sequelae associated with delayed identification of iatrogenic skull base injury during endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS).

Rhinology 2017 Mar;55(1):53-58

Center for Cranial Base Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Background: Skull base injury is an infrequent complication during endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). We hypothesize that late recognition and repair of CSF leaks during ESS is associated with increased neurologic morbidity.

Methodology: A retrospective review was performed of patients with skull base injury during ESS at a tertiary center from 1999-2015. Read More
