Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Oct 2. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Headache Medicine, Yale Neuroscience Center, New Haven, CT, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Treatment of rhinosinusitis (RS) is one of the leading reasons for prescriptions of antibiotics, although they often fail to provide symptomatic relief. Appropriately diagnosing and treating patients presenting with RS for whom antibiotic therapy has failed or who have normal CT findings is a controversial topic. One explanation is that what these patients are experiencing is misinformation from the trigeminal nerve and autonomic nervous system. Read More

Mometasone furoate sinus implant - a new targeted approach to treating recurrent nasal polyp disease.

Expert Rev Clin Pharmacol 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

a Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery , Northwestern University , Chicago , IL , USA.

Introduction: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a broad heterogeneous inflammatory disorder of the nose and paranasal sinuses, resulting from the dysfunctional interplay between host immunity, defective epithelial barrier, and environmental factors. CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is considered a more severe clinical phenotype with greater burden of symptoms and higher relapse rate, especially with comorbid asthma or aspirin sensitivity. Available treatment options after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) - systemic corticosteroids or revision surgery - have significant risks and limitations. Read More

J Clin Neurosci 2018 Dec 24;58:49-55. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Neurosurgery, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, China. Electronic address:

Although pituitary adenomas (PAs) are regarded as benign neoplasm, efficient postoperative management of PAs, especially invasive PAs, is still a major challenge for neurosurgeons. Thus, in order to verify the effect of postoperative surveillance alone for invasive PAs and identify helpful predictive factors of relapse after initial surgery, a series of 107 cases of surgically gross-totally resected invasive PAs were retrospectively investigated. With regarded to pituitary function, the preoperative incidence of hypothyroidism was higher than that of hypoadrenocorticism and hypogonadism (66. Read More
