The nasal airways and their close association to paranasal sinuses are an integral part of the respiratory tract. Mucociliary clearance is the predominant clearance mechanism for both upper and lower airways. The two components of mucociliary clearance are cilia and the secretions above them. It is known that CRS coexists in as many as 40–75% of patients with BA. CRS can present with polyposis or without polyposis. Treatment options for CRS include medical therapy, surgical intervention or both… 


Outcome Assessment of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
During the intervening 4 years there has been a rapid rise in the number of British ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgeons adopting this approach to endoscopic sinus surgery, with an exponential rise since 1985.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Improves Pulmonary Function in Patients with Asthma Associated with Chronic Sinusitis
Improvement of paranasal sinus disease by successful ESS can alleviate pulmonary dysfunction in asthma associated with chronic sinusitis and reduce not only the nasal and sinus-related symptoms evoked by chronic Sinusitis, but also some of the signs induced by asthma.
Outcome Predictors for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
It is concluded that computerized axial tomography scan of the sinuses and CSS are efficient ways of providing reliable baseline information before ESS and suggested the necessity of disease severity stratification when reporting ESS outcomes.

Successful management of the chronic allergic respiratory syndrome requires an integrated view of the airways and an understanding of their interactions, which is influenced by many interactions between the nasal and the lower airways.
Allergic rhinitis and onset of bronchial hyperresponsiveness: a population-based study.
Allergic rhinitis was associated with increased onset of bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR), and less chance for remission except in those treated forrhinitis, according to the follow-up of the European Community Respiratory Health Survey.
The Accuracy of Computed Tomography in the Diagnosis of Chronic Rhinosinusitis
Objective To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy of paranasal sinus computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).
Allergic rhinitis and its impact on asthma.
This systematic review and meta-analyses confirmed the findings of a previous study published in “Rhinitis and Asthma: Causes and Prevention, 2nd Ed.” (2015) as well as new findings of “Mechanisms of Respiratory Disease and Allergology,” which confirmed the role of EMTs in the development of these diseases.
