Authors:
Matti Penttilä

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2018 10 8;8(10):1204-1210. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland.

Background: The ostiomeatal complex (OMC), comprising a small natural maxillary sinus ostium and narrow infundibulum, transmits the air diffusion into the antrum and mucociliary transport from the antrum, and is considered a key area in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Thin membranous anterior and posterior fontanelle areas below the OMC can rupture forming a perforation, accessory maxillary ostium (AMO), that increases antral airflow changing the anatomy and function of the sinus. The purpose of this study was to report the first case series of CRS patients who had undergone repair of fontanelle defects aiming to reconstruct normal structures. Read More

The impact of balloon catheter dilation on frequency of sinus surgery in the United States.

Med Devices (Auckl) 2014 28;7:83-9. Epub 2014 Apr 28.

Medical Affairs, Acclarent Inc., a Johnson & Johnson Company, Menlo Park, CA, USA ; Cleveland Nasal-Sinus and Sleep Center, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Purpose: Endoscopic sinus surgery for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) unresponsive to medical therapy has traditionally been performed under general anesthesia and in the operating room. Balloons for catheter dilation of paranasal sinuses were introduced in 2005, allowing sinus surgery to be safely performed either in the operating room or the office care setting, under local anesthesia. This change in care setting has raised concerns of overuse or expanded indications for sinus surgery. Read More
