Outcome Assessment of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The National Health Interview Survey is a complex, multi-stage, probability sample survey conducted annually by trained interviewers of the U.S. population on a variety of health issues, including the incidence of acute conditions, percent of medically attended acute Conditions, number of disability days, and work- or school-loss days.

[Allergic rhinitis and its impact on asthma].
TLDR
The ARIA guidelines were recently updated and recommended that the presence of asthma must be considered in all patients with rhinitis, and that in planning treatment, both should be considered together in terms of efficacy and safety.
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).
Outcome Predictors for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.
