Nasal mucociliary clearance was measured using a saccharin technique in 172 patients with perennial rhinitis (76 also had asthma) and in 121 patients with chronic infected rhinosinusitis (40 had asthma, 35 had bronchiectasis). All patient groups had significantly longer mean nasal mucociliary clearance times than that of a group of healthy subjects. Grossly prolonged clearance (greater than 60 minutes) occurred in significantly more patients with the clinical syndrome of chronic infected… CONTINUE READING
