Contemporary Classification of Chronic Rhinosinusitis Beyond Polyps vs No Polyps: A Review.

JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2020 Jul 9. Epub 2020 Jul 9.

Rhinology and Skull Base Research Group, St Vincent's Centre for Applied Medical Research, University of New South Wales, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Importance: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a broadly defined process that has previously been used to describe many different sinonasal pathologic conditions from odontogenic sinusitis and allergic fungal sinusitis to the more contemporary definition of broad inflammatory airway conditions. Previous classification systems have dichotomized these conditions into CRS with nasal polyps and CRS without nasal polyps. However, clinicians are learning more about the inflammatory subtypes of CRS, which can lead to improved delivery and effectiveness of treatment. Read More

Lactobacilli Have a Niche in the Human Nose.

Cell Rep 2020 May;31(8):107674

Department of Bioscience Engineering, University of Antwerp, Groenenborgerlaan 171, 2020 Antwerp, Belgium. Electronic address:

Although an increasing number of beneficial microbiome members are characterized for the human gut and vagina, beneficial microbes are underexplored for the human upper respiratory tract (URT). In this study, we demonstrate that taxa from the beneficial Lactobacillus genus complex are more prevalent in the healthy URT than in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Several URT-specific isolates are cultured, characterized, and further explored for their genetic and functional properties related to adaptation to the URT. Read More

Dupilumab: Clinical Efficacy of Blocking IL-4/IL-13 Signalling in Chronic Rhinosinusitis with Nasal Polyps.

Drug Des Devel Ther 2020 8;14:1757-1769. Epub 2020 May 8.

Department of Rhinology, Royal National ENT Hospital, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

In September 2019, published details of two large Phase III double-blind placebo-controlled studies (LIBERTY NP SINUS-24 and LIBERTY NP SINUS-52) confirming the clinical efficacy of the biologic dupilumab in simultaneously blocking both IL-4/IL-13 signalling in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). The studies demonstrated that dupilumab (Dupixent, Sanofi and Regeneron) 300mg subcutaneously administered was clinically effective when added for patients with moderate to severe CRSwNP already maintained on the standard intranasal steroid mometasone furoate. Duration of treatment ranged from injections either 2 weekly for 24 weeks (SINUS-24) or every 2 weeks for 52 weeks or finally every 2 weeks for 24 weeks stepping down thereafter to every 4 weeks for a further 28 weeks (SINUS-52).

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 1720 Second Avenue South, Birmingham, AL, 35294, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogenous disease process affecting a significant proportion of the population and impacting quality of life and productivity. Historically, CRS has been classified broadly into CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) and CRS without nasal polyps (CRSsNP). Increased understanding regarding unique presentations of CRS subsets and their underlying inflammatory profiles has led to a new system for classifying CRS phenotypes. Read More

[Radicality of maxillary sinus surgery and size of the maxillary sinus ostium].

HNO 2020 May 13. Epub 2020 May 13.

Klinik für Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde, Kopf- und Halschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Ulm, Frauensteige 12, 89075, Ulm, Deutschland.

Until the 1990s, radical sinus surgery was considered a standard procedure for maxillary sinus diseases, but it is no longer favored due to the high morbidity. Today, functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is considered the gold standard in sinus surgery. Modifications of surgical approaches also allow access to regions of the maxillary sinus that were previously difficult to reach. Read More
