Purpose of reviewNasal obstruction, the cardinal symptom of persistent (perennial) allergic rhinitis, is one of the most common symptoms encountered in primary care and in specialist clinics. It is difficult to quantify by clinical examination, and, hence, objective assessment of the nasal airway is critical to rhinologic research. Nasal obstruction in persistent allergic rhinitis must be treated the year round, and therefore treatment choices, costs, and compliance all become important public… Expand
Sublingual immunotherapy for allergic rhinitis: an update
  • S. Burastero
  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in otolaryngology & head and neck surgery
  • 2006
TLDR
Sublingual immunotherapy is a highly efficacious and well tolerated form of immunotherapy for allergic rhinitis, and it is capable of interfering with disease progression. Expand
Prevalance of upper airway symptoms and aspects on treatment of nasal polyposis
TLDR
Self-reported non-allergic rhinitis symptoms are highly prevalent independent of age, and reduced sense of smell is a common complaint. Expand
Pathophysiology of nasal congestion
TLDR
Mucosal inflammation underlies many of the specific and interrelated factors that contribute to nasal congestion, as well as other symptoms of both allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. Expand
Extranasal symptoms of allergic rhinitis are difficult to treat and affect quality of life.
TLDR
Extranasal symptom scores correlated well with physical health and mental health in allergic rhinitis patients, and the symptoms with the highest severity scores after treatment were blocked nose, postnasal drip, fatigue, and dry mouth, respectively. Expand
Pathophysiology of nasal obstruction and meta‐analysis of early and late effects of levocetirizine
TLDR
It is demonstrated convincingly that levocetirizine shows a consistent effect on nasal obstruction as early as over the first 2 h and sustained over 6 weeks, as well as over a longer period of time. Expand
A review of the efficacy of desloratadine, fexofenadine, and levocetirizine in the treatment of nasal congestion in patients with allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
Desloratadine, fexofenadine and levocetirizine are appropriate options for the treatment of nasal congestion in patients with AR, and were effective in relieving the nasal congestion associated with AR compared with placebo. Expand
Pregnancy rhinitis : Pathophysiological effects of oestrogen and treatment with oral decongestants
TLDR
In the human nasal mucosa of healthy subjects, immunocytochemistry showed distinct oestrogen receptor (ER) s positive cells in all sections, which indicate that Oestrogen may play a role in the development of pregnancy rhinitis. Expand
Nasal Obstruction
TLDR
Various medical therapies and surgical techniques will be described for the treatment of nasal obstruction, the primary symptom of persistent allergic rhinitis (AR). Expand
Intranasal steroids or radiofrequency turbinoplasty in persistent allergic rhinitis: effects on quality of life and objective parameters
TLDR
Nasal congestion refractory to antihistamine appears to be improved by INS at some point, while reduced significantly by RFT in objective and subjective parameters, which might be a safe and effective treatment of option in AR compared with INS. Expand
Surgical treatment for allergic rhinitis
TLDR
Standard surgical treatment for allergic rhinitis has not been established, but a variety of surgery for patients who do not respond to appropriate medication can help relieve allergic symptoms and these effective but invasive procedures should be chosen carefully. Expand

Use of intranasal cromolyn sodium for allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
Intranasal cromolyn has an excellent safety record, is available as an over-the-counter medication, and has been proved to be efficacious in patients with allergic rhinitis, which is associated with impaired occupational function and performance in school and decreased quality of life. Expand
Effect of submucosal diathermy in chronic nasal obstruction due to turbinate enlargement.
TLDR
Submucosal diathermy is carried out under local anesthesia and is a safe, effective procedure for improving nasal breathing in patients with chronic obstructive inferior turbinates, both on a short-term and long-term basis. Expand
Rhinitis in pregnancy.
TLDR
In pregnancy, the safety profile of drugs is the primary item to be considered and it is recommended to use "older drugs" because more data about their safety are available. Expand
Acoustic rhinometric assessment of nasal obstruction after treatment with fluticasone propionate in patients with perennial rhinitis.
TLDR
This study provides subjective and objective evidence on the efficacy of intranasal FP in improving nasal obstruction in perennial rhinitis and AR also proved to be a useful instrument in monitoring the effectiveness of medical therapy for perennial Rhinitis. Expand
Laser Surgery of the Inferior Turbinate for Allergic Rhinitis with Seasonal Exacerbation: An Acoustic Rhinometry Study
TLDR
It is concluded that laser surgery can be successfully applied to patients whose allergies show seasonal exacerbation by airborne pollen. Expand
The efficacy of nasal surgery among patients with and without allergies.
TLDR
The allergic status of the patient is not an effective predictive criterion for the outcome of nasal surgery in patients with perennial nasal obstruction and the efficacy of this procedure is rather low and better preoperative criteria are required to improve its efficacy. Expand
Assessment of early- and late-phase nasal obstruction in atopic patients after nasal allergen challenge.
In order to study the types of nasal obstruction in allergic rhinitis, nasal allergen challenge was performed in 18 atopic patients, compared with a control group consisting of 10 healthy volunteers.Expand
Desloratadine: an update of its efficacy in the management of allergic disorders.
TLDR
Although comparative studies with second-generation and other recently developed H(1)-antihistamines are needed to define the drug's clinical profile more clearly, desloratadine can be expected to claim a prominent place in the management of allergic disorders in general, and in the amelioration of specific symptoms of allergy in patients with such disorders. Expand
Argon plasma coagulation for intractable nasal obstruction occurring in patients with allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
New surgical treatment for the intractable nasal obstruction in patients with nasal allergy by using Argon Plasma Coagulator (APC) was introduced, and it was found that nasal obstruction was ameliorated in all cases, though a crust and fibrin membrane adhered to the mucosa between 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, resulting in temporary exacerbation of nasal obstruction. Expand
Definition, prevalence and development of nasal obstruction
TLDR
Nasal obstruction is defined as discomfort manifested as a feeling of insufficient airflow through the nose, a subjective complaint that is one of the complaints of patients with atrophic rhinitis, a disorder with wide nasal cavities. Expand
