Patients suffering asthma at high-risk for other health complicationsSinusitis is a health complication that affects nearly 37 million people in the United States alone and a big part of this affected population also suffers from asthma that is an inflammatory disease of the lungs characterized by obstruction of reversible airway.

A study was entailed to find out the variations in sinusitis symptoms noticed by asthmatics versus non-asthmatics and the authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E. Kountakis MD PhD, all with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA.

The findings were presented at the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York City, NY.

Patients with asthma are prone to other ailmentsSinusitis is a severe health complication affecting approximately 37 million individuals in the United States alone and a big majority of this population is also affected by asthma, which is a disease characterized by reversible airway obstruction.

A study was conducted to examine sinusitis symptom variations noticed by asthmatics and non-asthmatic population also suffering from sinusitis. The authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E.

Asthma patients are prone to other diseasesNearly 37 million people in the United States alone are afflicted with sinusitis and a big part of this patient population is also affected with asthma, an inflammatory disease of the lungs which is characterized by reversible airway obstruction.

In order to ascertain the differences in symptoms of sinusitis experienced by asthmatics versus non-asthmatics, a study was entailed. The authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E.

Nasal polyposis, nasal congestion, and olfactory disturbances attack asthma patientsNearly 37 million people in the United States alone suffer from sinusitis and a big part of this population also suffers from asthma that is an inflammatory disease of the lungs characterized by reversible airway obstruction.

A study was conducted for identifying variations in sinusitis symptoms experienced by asthmatics versus non-asthmatics; authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E. Kountakis MD PhD, all with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA.

Minimally invasive surgery safe for alleviating painAccording to a recently concluded research, minimally invasive surgery is a safe and effective therapy in terms of alleviating pain and pressure of sinusitis for geriatric patients who find no relief with medication alone.

Dr. Stilianos E. Kountakis, otolaryngologist, vice chair of the Medical College of Georgia Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery and a principal author on the study published in the December issue of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, said the finding suggest that minimally invasive surgery is a surgical technique not as invasive as others and still effective for facilitating good outcomes.

Dr. Kountakis said that patients over the age of 60 and who underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery reported improvement in symptoms over the year following surgery, had few minor complications, and no major complications.

Protein behind chronic rhinosinusitis with Polyps identifiedA protein known for stimulating growth of blood vessel was recently found to be behind the cell overgrowth in the development of polyps, which characterize one of the most severe sinusitis forms.

This finding was disclosed by researchers from John Hopkins and is expected to provide a new target to develop novel therapies for treating this disease form that usually resists all presently available treatment options.

Other researchers participating in this study were Hyun Sil Lee, Ph.D., and Allen Myers, Ph.D.

Asthma patients are easy victims of nasal polyposis, nasal congestion, and olfactory disturbancesApproximately 37 million Americans suffer from sinusitis and a part of this population is unfortunate enough to also suffer from asthma, which is an inflammatory disease of the lungs characterized by reversible airway obstruction.

The authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E.

Minimally invasive surgery termed safe for alleviating pain and sinusitis pressureAccording to a research, minimally invasive surgery is a safe and effective therapy for alleviating the pain and pressure of sinusitis for geriatric patients who can’t be helped by medication alone.

Dr. Stilianos E. Kountakis, otolaryngologist, vice chair of the Medical College of Georgia Department of OtolaryngologyHead and Neck Surgery and a principal author on the study published in the December issue of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, said the finding suggests that sinus problems must not be ignored in the elderly and there is a surgical technique that is not that invasive and offers good outcomes.

Dr. Kountakis and collaborators, led by Drs. J. Chris Colclasure and Charles W. Gross at the University of Virginia Health System found patients continue reporting improvement in symptoms over the year after surgery besides experiencing few minor complications and no major complications.

Intersect ENT analyzedSinexus has changed its name to Intersect ENT and the initial focus of Intersect is a bioabsorbable drug eluting stent for treating patients with sinusitis, which is a debilitating condition that affects around 37 million people each year.

Lisa Earnhardt, President and CEO, said that Intersect is a name that suggests their mission to connect drugs and devices to physicians and patients in need.

The company is aiming to offer less invasive forms of treatment that would result in enhanced outcomes and minimized need for systemic drugs such as oral steroids that can lead to severe side effects.

Protein behind Chronic Rhinosinusitis with Polyps identifiedVascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a protein necessary for normal blood vessel growth and stimulating blood vessel growth, has been found to be behind cell overgrowth in the development of polyps characterizing one of the most severe forms of sinusitis.

The finding was revealed by researchers at the Johns Hopkins and appeared in an issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Jean Kim, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Departments of Otolaryngology and Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and a researcher at the Johns Hopkins Allergy and Asthma Center at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, said that this kind of sinusitis isn’t subtle.
