The authors present a case of nasal mucosal sarcoidosis. Its low incidence may be due to unawareness of this sometimes forgotten entity. Crusting and nasal obstruction may be the first symptoms of this multisystemic disease. With the nasal endoscope, today's most helpful tool for examining the nose and its adjacent structures, the otolaryngologist can(More)
This study describes the peroperative endoscopic findings about the size, shape and mucosal changes of the middle turbinate in patients with chronic sinusitis who underwent total spheno-ethmoidectomy. Results confirmed the middle turbinate to be a useful landmark in performing extensive sinus surgery. The most frequent change due to chronic inflammation(More)
The authors report the first case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) isolated from the maxillary sinus of an immunocompetent patient with acute bacterial sinusitis. CMV has not been previously reported in the maxillary sinus of immunocompetent patients. The authors' hypothesis is that CMV can act as a precipitating factor for acute bacterial sinusitis.
Eleven patients with nasal septal perforations were surgically treated within a period of seven years. Former septal surgery was the major cause of nasoseptal perforations. The technique most frequently used was a Cottle septoplasty with closure of the perforation by bipedicled flaps and interposition of autogenous cartilage and bone. The authors were(More)
The major goal in functional endoscopic sinus surgery (F.E.S.S.) is the precise and delicate removal of diseased tissue in order to prevent trauma to healthy mucosa, bleeding and scar formation. One of the advantages in this field is the use of the microdebrider. The authors describe the use of this instrument, as well as their own experience for nasal(More)
