MATERIAL AND METHOD We analyzed the severity of allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and bronchial asthma in a group of 640 subjects from Warsaw area with hypersensitivity to hazel, alder,(More)
The development of minimally invasive procedures such as the balloon dilation Eustachian tuboplasty (BET) is an alternative to the grommet tympanum membrane. BET is applied in the cases where, after elimination of all factors influencing the ET and middle ear functioning, no sufficient improvement is observed. The aim of this study was to present the(More)
Aim is to determine the efficacy and pain level associated with the use of dissolvable carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) foam dressing in functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) in adult patients. In the present prospective study, 60 patients with bilateral chronic rhinosinusitis were included. All patients underwent bilateral FESS. Thirty patients had both(More)
In patients with nasal polyps the colonisation of nasal polyps tissues by Helicobacter pylori was investigated using urease test (GUT plus). In this prospective clinical trials we enrolled 61 subjects who had undergone endoscopic nasal polyps surgery and 30 subjects who had undergone septoplasty (control group) were questioned and biopsy specimens of the(More)
OBJECTIVES Nasal packing is commonly practiced in postoperative care after nose and sinus surgery, not only for haemostasis but also as internal stabilisation and synechia formation control. The aim of our study was to compare the pain level, adhessions and haemostatic properties of Stammberger sinus dressing (SSD) with Dissolvable Sinu-Knit (DSK) and(More)
