Meta-analysis of both large outcome studies as well as cohort studies support the safety and efficacy of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery for Chronic Rhinosinusitis. The efficacy of endoscopic sinus surgery is demonstrated in the improvement of both disease-specific and generic QOL as well as objective measures. However, this must be interpreted together with a(More)
BACKGROUND Although the use of the microdebrider (shaver) is well known in endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), there is lack of evidence from comparative studies focussing on the difference in operating time, intra-operative blood loss and user-friendliness between the microdebrider and traditional operating techniques. In this study we compared the use of the(More)
Chronic rhinosinusitis is a heterogeneous and multifactorial disease with unknown etiology. Aberrant responses to microorganisms have been suggested to play a role in the pathophysiology of the disease. Research has focused on the presence, detection, response to, and eradication of these potential threats. Main topics seem to center on the contribution of(More)
We assessed the efficacy and safety of oral single doses of 0.5 and 1 g metamizol vs. 1 g acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in 417 patients with moderate episodic tension-type headache included in a randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled, parallel, multicentre trial. Eligibility criteria included 18-65 years of age, history of at least two(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study is to systematically review the existing evidence on the role of corticosteroids in patients undergoing functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). METHODOLOGY Systematic search of MEDLINE (1950- 2014), EMBASE (1980-2014), metaRegister, Cochrane Library and ISI conference proceedings was carried out. RESULTS Eighteen(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is rare in children and has a major impact on Quality of Life (QoL). Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has proven to be an effective treatment, but it is still unclear what long-term outcomes are in children with CRSwNP. The objective of this study was to assess long-term results of FESS(More)
The first European Rhinology Research Forum organized by the European Forum for Research and Education in Allergy and Airway Diseases (EUFOREA) was held in the Royal Academy of Medicine in Brussels on 17th and 18th November 2016, in collaboration with the European Rhinologic Society (ERS) and the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GA2LEN).

Introduction:Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections are prevalent amongst chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) sufferers. Many P. aeruginosa strains form biofilms, leading to treatment failure. Lytic bacteriophages (phages) are viruses that infect, replicate within, and lyse bacteria, causing bacterial death. Aim: To assess the activity of a phage cocktail in(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with eosinophilic nasal polyposis frequently require surgery, and recurrence rates are high. OBJECTIVE We sought to assess the efficacy and safety of mepolizumab versus placebo for severe bilateral nasal polyposis. METHODS This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial recruited patients aged 18 to 70 years with recurrent(More)
