BACKGROUND: This is the largest study in North America investigating olfactory outcomes after pituitary surgery to date. OBJECTIVE: Characterize factors associated with subjective olfactory dysfunction (OD) and worsened sinonasal quality-of-life (QOL) after endoscopic TSA. METHODS: Patients undergoing primary TSA for secreting and non-secreting pituitary adenomas between 2017 and 2021 with pre- and post-operative SNOT-22 scores were included...

BACKGROUND: Postnasal drip (PND) syndrome is a prevalent complaint encountered in otolaryngology practices. PND may be refractory to medical therapy, and surgical treatments are complicated by side effects. OBJECTIVE: While posterior nasal nerve (PNN) ablation has demonstrated efficacy for chronic rhinitis overall, we sought to examine the effect of PNN ablation for patients with PND as their primary complaint. METHODS: This is a retrospective case series study of 40 chronic rhinitis (CR) patients with a primary complaint of PND...

BACKGROUND: Environmental exposures have been postulated to play an important role in the pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Particulate matter (PM) is one of the most widely studied ambient air pollutants, but its peri-operative impact on CRS is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of acute, peri-operative PM exposure on outcomes after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). METHODS: Participants with CRS who self-selected ESS were prospectively enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Inhalant allergens provide a source of environmental factors that contribute to the development of clinical symptoms in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). OBJECTIVE: To review the relationship between inhalant allergens and AD. METHODS: A literature review was conducted using three databases: PubMed/MEDLINE, ClinicalKey, and Web of Science. Search terms, including "atopic dermatitis," "atopic eczema," and "eczema," were used in combination with "inhalant allergen," "inhaled allergen," and "aeroallergen" to identify relevant published manuscripts that highlight the relationship between AD and exposures to inhalant allergens...

BACKGROUND: No widely accepted, validated instrument currently exists to measure clinical outcomes in patients who undergo dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for treatment of epiphora. OBJECTIVE: To develop a patient-reported outcome measure applicable to this population. METHODS: Psychometric evaluations, consultation with experts, and review of the literature informed item generation of a 12-question questionnaire to incorporate the most relevant symptoms experienced by patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction...

BACKGROUND: The goals of this study were to understand the trends in recent and past rhinology fellows concerning their demographics, goals, and experiences. METHODS: An anonymous web-based survey was sent to graduates of the 35 rhinology fellowship programs. The survey included questions regarding the scope of practice, research contribution, societal involvement, fellow satisfaction with training, and current practice patterns. Chi-square testing and logistic regression were used to compare variables across cohorts: 0-5 years versus 6+ years from fellowship graduation, gender, and practice settings...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) could significantly improve olfactory function among patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). This study aimed to perform a meta-analysis to evaluate the effect of ESS on the olfactory bulb volume (OBV) among patients with CRS. METHODS: A systemic search of PubMed, Medline, Embase, Web of Science, and other databases was conducted to identify studies assessing OBV changes in patients with CRS after ESS utilizing magnetic resonance imaging...

BACKGROUND: Obtaining insurance approval is a necessary component of healthcare in the United States and denials of these claims have been estimated to result in a loss of 3% to 5% of revenue. OBJECTIVE: Examine the trends in insurance denials for rhinological procedures. METHODS: A retrospective review of deidentified financial data of patients who were treated by participating physicians across 3 institutions from January 1, 2021, to June 30, 2023...

BACKGROUND: The concept of "time toxicity" has emerged to address the impact of time spent in the healthcare system; however, little work has examined the phenomenon in the field of otolaryngology. OBJECTIVE: To validate the use of Evaluation and Management (E/M) current procedural terminology codes as a method to assess time burden and to pilot this tool to characterize the time toxicity of office visits associated with a diagnosis of pituitary adenoma between 2016 and 2019...

BACKGROUND: Budesonide high-volume saline irrigations (HVSIs) are routinely used to treat chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) due to improved sinonasal delivery and efficacy compared to intranasal corticosteroid sprays. The off-label use of budesonide is assumed to be safe, with several studies suggesting the systemically absorbed dose of budesonide HVSI is low. However, the actual budesonide dose retained in the sinonasal cavity following HVSI is unknown. The objective of this study was to quantify the retained dose of budesonide after HVSI...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common health disorders in humans and has a major impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Of the many factors contributing to the etiology of CRS, less is known about the correlation between CRS and bacterial biofilms and their impact on HRQoL. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the relationship between biofilm-producing bacteria and patients' objective findings and HRQoL...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this meta-analysis is to compare the outcomes of early endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) with delayed DCR in the treatment of acute dacryocystitis (AD). METHODS: A comprehensive electronic search of PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library databases was conducted up to November 11, 2023. Data synthesis was performed using Review Manager 5.4, and forest plots were generated for each outcome measure. Potential publication bias was assessed using funnel plots and Egger's test...

BACKGROUND: Central compartment atopic disease (CCAD) is a recently described variant of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) strongly associated with atopy. The association between central compartment disease (CCD) and inhalant allergy is not well established in South-East Asia, where perennial allergic rhinitis is common. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective was to evaluate endoscopic and radiologic CCD as predictors of perennial allergen sensitization in primary CRS. The secondary objective was to compare clinical characteristics of CCAD with other CRS subtypes (CRSwNP and CRSsNP)...

BACKGROUND: The neuropeptide U (NMU) has been proven to elicit the release of mediators from mast cells (MCs) through its receptor NMUR1 in allergic inflammatory models. However, little is known about the correlations between NMU and MCs in human allergic rhinitis (AR). OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to investigate the expressions of NMU and NMUR1 in the tryptase  +  MCs and the peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) in human nasal mucosa with AR...

BACKGROUND: Priming is a psychological phenomenon where subconscious cues in the environment impact our behavioral responses in certain situations. Well studied in the worlds of business, marketing, and even politics, it is unclear how the priming phenomenon impacts patient perception of their own disease state nor how they report that perception using tools like the Sinonasal Outcomes Test (SNOT-22), used to measure that perception in chronic rhinosinusitis. OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of positive or negative priming on self-reported patient perception of their chronic rhinosinusitis disease using the SNOT-22 disease-specific quality of life instrument...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that respiratory diseases are associated with an increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, whether there is a correlation between chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and RA is not known. Due to the high incidence of CRS, it remains to be clarified whether we should pay additional attention to RA risk in the huge population of CRS. METHODS: We used a 2-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis to explore the causal effects of CRS on the incidence of RA...
