ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Sinonasal Disease: 2021 Update

Choosing Wisely Canada rhinology recommendations

The Rhinology Subspecialty Group of the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery developed a list of five evidence-based recommendations for the management of acute rhinosinusitis and nasal fractures.

Shortcomings in the diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis: evaluating diagnosis by otolaryngologists and primary care physicians

Evaluating the diagnostic rate of CRS by primary care physicians and otolaryngologists in the United States found that 92% of patients diagnosed by nonspecialists did not meet diagnostic criteria.

Off-Label Use of Ciprofloxacin/Dexamethasone Drops in the Pediatric Upper Airway: Case Presentation and Review of Adverse Effects.

This is the first reported pediatric case of increased blood glucose levels associated with intranasal steroid suspensions, to the best of the authors' knowledge.

A prospective study of acute sinusitis, clinical features and modalities of management in adults, Sudan

It is shown that the active working ages (25-40) were the most affected and the above 60 years old was the least affected group in acute sinusitis, and differentiation is of paramount importance.

Can Diffusion-Weighted Imaging Serve as an Imaging Biomarker for Acute Bacterial Rhinosinusitis?

A series of four patients with incidentally discovered culture-positive acute rhinosinusitis were found to also have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that showed corresponding restricted diffusion on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), indicating a potential non-invasive imaging biomarker that could predict which patients would benefit from anti-microbial therapy.

A new approach to categorization of radiologic inflammation in chronic rhinosinusitis

Differing patterns of opacification may be clinically relevant, improving measurement of objective evidence in studies of CRS and sinus diseases.

Diagnostic Criteria of Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis: A Systematic Review

The diagnostic definition for RARS has developed over time and is currently based on low level 4 and 5 evidence, and future studies should aim to follow current expert guidelines on diagnostic criteria of RARS.

Topical Steroids in Rhinosinusitis and Intraoperative Bleeding: More Harm Than Good?

In the authors' experience, despite the presence of NP, chronic preoperative administration of INCs was associated with increased intraoperative bleeding according the Boezaart scale although objective recordings of blood loss were not statistically different between the INC users and nonusers.

What the Radiologist Needs to Know About Sinonasal Masses

It is imperative that radiologists not only are aware of imaging findings of both benign and malignant sinonasal masses and mass-like lesions but also are able to recommend the next appropriate steps in patient management.

Chronic Rhinosinusitis: Is the Nose Really Involved?

Eosinophils are found in significantly higher numbers in sinus mucosa than in nasal mucosa, suggesting a site-specific role in rhinosinusitis, and Histopathologic evidence of rhinitis is associated with chronic sinusitis, which supports the concept of rhinesinusitis rather than sinuitis alone.
