Authors:
Virendra Singh

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2019 Jun 28;18(2):164-179. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Oral and maxillofacial Surgery, PGIDS, Pt. BD Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak, Haryana 124001 India.

Fungal rhinosinusitis (FRS), once considered a rare disease, has seen a steep rise in incidence in recent times. This global rise in the burden of fungal disease is a consequence of an increment in the population with weakened immune systems. Increased life expectancy with rise in conditions like diabetes mellitus, medical advancements with invasive interventions, use of immunosuppressive drugs and chemo-radiotherapy all lead to unique risk situations.

Background: Maxillary sinusitis of odontogenic origin, also known as maxillary sinusitis of dental origin or odontogenic maxillary sinusitis (OMS), is a common disease in dental, otorhinolaryngologic, allergic, general, and maxillofacial contexts. Despite being a well-known disease entity, many cases are referred to otorhinolaryngologists by both doctors and dentists. Thus, early detection and initial diagnosis often fail to detect its odontogenic origin. Read More

Nasal Polyposis: More than a Chronic Inflammatory Disorder-A Disease of Mechanical Dysfunction-The São Paulo Position.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Apr 1;23(2):241-249. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Unifesp, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

 The importance of our study lies in the fact that we have demonstrated the occurrence of mechanical dysfunction within polypoid tissues, which promotes the development of polyps in the nasal cavity.  To change the paradigm of nasal polyposis (NP). In this new conception, the chronic nasal inflammatory process that occurs in response to allergies, to pollution, to changes in the epithelial barrier, or to other factors is merely the trigger of the development of the disease in individuals with a genetic predisposition to an abnormal tissue remodeling process, which leads to a derangement of the mechanical properties of the nasal mucosa and, consequently, allows it to grow unchecked.

Is post orthognathic maxillary sinusitis related to sino-nasal anatomical alterations?

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Maxillo-Facial Department, University of Verona, Maxillo Facial and ENT Surgery, Policlininico G. B. Rossi, Piazzale L. A. Scuro, 37134 Verona, Italy.

Le Fort I osteotomies have been used for more than five decades, but their impact on nasal and paranasal cavities physiology, has not been studied deeply. In this paper we want to analyse the possible correlation between post-orthognathic findings and prevalence of sinusitis which require surgical treatment. A retrospective cohort study was designed in 2017; the study was designed and carried out in the Verona University maxillo-facial department, a referral centre for orthognathic surgery. Read More

Quality of Life and Impact of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery in Adult Patients With Cystic Fibrosis.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2019 Apr 1:1945892419839260. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

1 Clinic of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery and Translational Medicine, Careggi University Hospital, Florence, Italy.

Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common autosomal recessive disease in Caucasian population. Due to its pathological mechanism, chronic rhino sinusitis (CRS) associated or not with nasal polyposis usually occurs in adults and affects close to one-half of all CF patients. The goal of our work was to evaluate the impact of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) in the quality of life (QoL) of the CF patients and demonstrate an improvement of the functional outcomes in the patients undergoing the surgical procedure rather than in the not treated ones.

The Pneumococcus and Its Critical Role in Public Health.

Methods Mol Biol 2019 ;1968:205-213

Paediatric Infectious Diseases Research Group, Institute for Infection and Immunity, St. George's, University of London, London, UK.

Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the commonest bacteria that cause morbidity and mortality in children and the elderly. The two extremes of age and individuals with underlying disease are particularly at risk of developing pneumococcal disease. The pneumococcus is responsible for a wide range of infectious diseases, ranging from mild, non-invasive infections such as otitis media and sinusitis, to more severe infections including pneumonia, septicemia, and meningitis.

Is Head Computerized Tomography Indicated for the Workup of Headache in Patients with Intact Neurological Examination.

Eur Neurol 2018 29;80(5-6):341-344. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Neurology, Rabin Medical Center, Beilinson Campus, Petach Tikva, Israel,

Introduction: The use of neuroimaging as part of the initial workup in the emergency department (ED) for patients with atraumatic headache is increasing, whereas the proportion of cases in which clinically significant intracranial pathology is detected is decreasing. In the last few decades, the exposure to medical ionized radiation from utilization of computer tomography (CT) increased dramatically, raising concern about radiation-induced cancer. Different guidelines were suggested to address the role of neuroimaging in the investigation of adult patients presenting to the ED with nontraumatic headache. Read More

Imaging of odontogenic sinusitis.

Clin Radiol 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Perth Radiological Clinic, Subiaco, WA, 6008, Australia; Department of Surgery, University of Western Australia, Nedlands, WA, 6009, Australia.

The aetiological relationship between dental disease and procedures and mucosal disease within the maxillary sinus has received extensive attention in the recent otolaryngological and dental literature. In contrast, the concept of an odontogenic cause for sinusitis is not well appreciated by radiologists. Review of the maxillary dentition, the alveolar process, and the relationship of the tooth roots to the floor of the maxillary sinus should be an integral part of interpretation of imaging of the paranasal sinuses.
