  • OBJECTIVES: To determine whether biofilm-forming capacity of bacteria demonstrated in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) has an impact on persistence of the disease following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). METHOD: Thirty-one bacterial strains recovered from 19 patients with CRS at least 1 year post-ESS. Evolution of disease was assessed by questionnaire and endoscopy as favorable or unfavorable. The bacteria were cultured on a 96-well culture plaque and a semi-quantitative method using crystal… CONTINUE READING
