Post-radiation sinusitis is associated with recurrence in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy.

Radiat Oncol 2019 Apr 11;14(1):61. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, No.100, Tzyou 1st Road, Kaohsiung, 807, Taiwan.

Background: This study investigated the impact of post-radiation sinusitis on the prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).

Methods: Two hundred and thirty patients with non-metastatic NPC were analyzed in terms of freedom from local failure (FFLF), freedom from distant failure (FFDF), overall survival (OS), and disease-free survival (DFS). For each patient, the status of the sinus mucosa was flexibly assessed by documenting mucosal changes as indicated by differences between images obtained before radiotherapy and more than 6 months post-radiation.

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.

Purpose: Many physicians recommend endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) even when an asymptomatic paranasal sinus (PNS) fungal ball is detected incidentally. The aim of this study was to investigate the natural behavior of PNS fungal balls via sinus imaging techniques.

Methods: A follow-up study of 74 pathologically confirmed fungus balls was conducted in 70 patients who underwent multiple head and neck computed tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Read More

Chronic sinusitis of odontogenic origin due to an undiagnosed displaced root fragment in the maxillary sinus and the role of cone beam computed tomography in successful management.

Indian J Dent Res 2018 Nov-Dec;29(6):847-851

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Ragas Dental College, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

Radiographic imaging is an important criteria in diagnosis, treatment planning, and follow-up of an endodontic treatment. When clinicians encounter with diagnostic difficulties and persistent symptoms, the need for advanced diagnostic aids, especially imaging methods, become imperative and essential. This paper reports a case, in which primary endodontic therapy having failed, the patient had persisting symptoms such as pain, swelling, and draining sinus along with signs and symptoms of maxillary sinusitis.

Successful rituximab treatment of granulomatosis with polyangiitis with cranial neuropathies.

Inflamm Regen 2018 19;38:20. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Keio University School of Medicine, 35 Shinanomachi, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: In granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), peripheral nerve involvement is common but central nervous system (CNS) involvement is extremely rare and treatment strategy has not been established. We report a case of intravenous cyclophosphamide (IVCY)-resistant GPA with associated cranial neuropathies that was successfully treated with rituximab (RTX).

Anatomical Variation in Maxillary Sinus Ostium Positioning: Implications for Nasal-Sinus Disease.

Anat Rec (Hoboken) 2018 Nov 24. Epub 2018 Nov 24.

Des Moines University, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Department of Anatomy, 3200 Grand Ave, Des Moines, Iowa, 50312.

Among humans, superiorly located maxillary sinus ostia (MSO) result in drainage complications and maxillary sinus (MS) disease. While previous studies investigate maxillary sinusitis frequency or MSO-position relative to specific nasal landmarks, few explore MSO-position to overall MS dimensions. This study investigates whether MSO-position relates to MS size/shape and if sex-based differences exist. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou 325000, China.

To investigate the correlation between postoperative recurrence and clinical parameters in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), and to study predicitve value of total scores of eosinophils (EOS) and sinus CT for postoperative recurrence. A retrospective analysis of 264 patients with CRSwNP who were admitted to the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University from June 2013 to December 2015 was performed. The patient was subjected to a visual analogue scale (VAS) score, a skin prick test, a peripheral blood cell count, a sinus CT score, and a nasal polyp EOS count. Read More

Fungus Ball of the Maxillary Sinus-Modern Treatment by Osteoplastic Approach and Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 24;77(3):546-554. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department Head, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Hospital Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

Purpose: Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is considered standard surgical therapy for fungus ball of the maxillary sinus. However, recent findings have indicated an odontogenic etiology, which requires simultaneous treatment of the dental origin. This study presents the authors' treatment results of fungus ball of the maxillary sinus using a combination of FESS and an endoscopically assisted osteoplastic approach through the anterior wall of the maxillary sinus, enabling simultaneous treatment of the dental origin.

Rhinosinusitis involves symptomatic inflammation of the paranasal sinuses. This common condition affects approximately 1 in 7 adults in the United States and is associated with significant morbidity and financial costs. Although rhinosinusitis primarily is a clinical diagnosis, medical imaging plays a unique role in sinusitis diagnosis and treatment, particularly in presurgical planning. Read More

Ectopic teeth in the maxillary sinus: A case report and literature review.

Indian J Dent Res 2018 Sep-Oct;29(5):667-671

Department of Oolaryngology, Casa di Cura "Città di Lecco", Lecco, Italy.

Ectopic eruption of teeth is a rare phenomenon although there have been reports of teeth in the nasal septum, mandibular condyle, and maxillary sinus. This impaction can present itself in a variety of ways such as chronic or recurrent sinusitis, sepsis, and facial numbness and can also be asymptomatic. The aim of this study was to describe, by means of research literature and by a case report, the characteristics and occurrence of ectopic eruption in the maxillary sinus. Read More
