Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a frequent disease with high social impact and multifactorial pathogenesis. Recently, single nucleotide polymorphisms within the TAS2R38 gene have been implicated as possible contributors to the complex gene-environment interactions in CRS. The purpose of this study was to confirm the proposed correlation between TAS2R38(More)
Nasal cytology is a diagnostic method in the field rinology used to detect changes into the endonasal epithelium exposed to physical and/or chemical irritation, acute or chronic inflammation due to different angents (viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic). Nasal cytology was born in 1889 thanks to H. Gollash who found many eosinophilic cells into the nasal(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to retrospectively evaluate safety and patient satisfaction of same-day discharge after elective radial coronary angiography/percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after the implementation of a radial lounge facility. METHODS All patients admitted to our radial lounge with a planned same-day discharge after an uncomplicated(More)
Mucociliary clearance is a key defence mechanism in human upper and lower airways and its impairment predisposes to chronic infections of the nose, paranasal sinuses and respiratory tract. Nasal mucociliary clearance is a first-line physiological function of nasal cavity, that helps protecting the lower respiratory tract from undesirable organic and(More)
Background Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a frequent disease with a high social impact and multifactorial pathogenesis. Recently, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the TAS2R38 gene were pointed at as possible contributors to the complex gene-environment interactions in CRS. This hypothesis was supported by in vitro evidence of the protective(More)
