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)
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)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to analyze the relation between clinical picture of allergic disease and the level of pollen count the patients are exposed to. 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)
UNLABELLED Treatment of idiopathic sudden hearing loss (SHL) is still a big problem for the otolaryngologists, due to the still unexplained etiopathogenesis of the illness. The aim of this study was to evaluate effectiveness of pharmacotherapy combined with the hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) in idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss treatment. Patients who(More)
The frontal recess and frontal sinus anatomy can vary from simple to complex. The variations in the anatomy of the frontal recess and frontal sinus are considerable but almost all variations can be classified if the various cell patterns are analyzed. This consensus document was developed to improve the ability of the surgeon to understand these possible(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)
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)
Use of new devices in surgical treatment of rhinosinusitis based on balloon catheters it's a hot topic in rhinology. Thanks to minimally invasive set of tools persistent sinus ostium patency without tissue removal is possible that was demonstrated in large multicenter study. This surgical procedure is safe and increases postoperative patients comfort. In(More)
BACKGROUND The frontal sinus is considered the most challenging sinus to address surgically. There are no current classifications of the degree of surgical complexity of different frontal sinus configurations. The aim of this study is to develop a classification system of the degree of complexity of frontal recess surgery based on preoperative computed(More)
