The first European Rhinology Research Forum organized by the European Forum for Research and Education in Allergy and Airway Diseases (EUFOREA) was held in the Royal Academy of Medicine in Brussels on 17th and 18th November 2016, in collaboration with the European Rhinologic Society (ERS) and the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GA2LEN). One hundred and thirty participants (medical doctors from different specialties, researchers, as well as patients and industry representatives) from 27 countries took part in the multiple perspective discussions including brainstorming sessions on care pathways and research needs in rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. The debates started with an overview of the current state of the art, including weaknesses and strengths of the current practices, followed by the identification of essential research needs, thoroughly integrated in the context of Precision Medicine (PM), with personalized care, prediction of success of treatment, participation of the patient and prevention of disease as key principles for improving current clinical practices. This report provides a concise summary of the outcomes of the brainstorming sessions of the European Rhinology Research Forum 2016. [less ▲]

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Chronic rhinosinusitis with and without nasal polyps is a common disease affecting people all over the world. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has become the gold standard treatment for medically refractive disease. Postoperative care is recommended by international leaders as an important part of the patient's management. This article is a critical review and discussion focusing on postoperative care, which is based on expert opinion, clinical studies, randomized controlled trials and meta-analysis studies. RECENT FINDINGS: Postoperative care including nasal rinsing, topical corticosteroids, antibiotics and avoidance of nasal packing are unanimously considered to be the cornerstone of best practice following FESS. However, the effectiveness of in-office nasal debridement is still under debate. SUMMARY: There is a lack of consensus regarding the necessity of performing in-office nasal debridement and the majority of clinicians carry out their postoperative care according to experience and their own preference. This is often determined by the extent of surgery performed, the severity of the postoperative inflammation, as well as being dependent on the patient's discomfort, the time constraints associated with postoperative care and the costs associated with additional appointments. Ideally, nasal debridement should be performed by the operating surgeon under endoscopic control both gently and atraumatically. [less ▲]

A total of 154 adult patients with sleep complaints underwent a polysomnography and a craniofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). OSA was defined as an apnea and hypopnea index (AHI) or an oxygen desaturation index (ODI) + or = 10. Soft tissues and craniofacial bones volumes were prospectively measured by CBCT and collected blindly from sleep polysomnography. Among the study patients, 127 (83%) suffered from OSA and 27 (17%) did not. OSA patients demonstrated a narrower maxillo-palatine core volume (11.7 + or - 3.2 vs 14.6 + or - 4.9 cm3) even when adjusting for age, gender, height, neck circumference and body mass index. These upper airway measures provide a comprehensive analysis of bony structures and soft tissues, which can be involved in OSA. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Nasal olfactory mucosa is an accessible source of olfactory ensheathing cells for spinal cord regeneration. However, safety of the biopsy technique and the effects on sense of smell and nasal function have not been robustly assessed in the form of a prospective controlled study. METHODOLOGY: National Health Service ethical approval was granted for this study of 131 patients. The primary outcome measure was olfactory function and the secondary outcomes included postoperative complication rates as well as the SNOT 22, NOSE scale scores and surgeon reported (Lund-Kennedy score) nasal function outcomes. RESULTS: 65 patients underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and superior turbinate biopsy, and 66 patients underwent FESS only as the control group. There was no significant difference in complication rates between the two groups. All Olfactory function outcomes were unaffected following olfactory biopsy. We demonstrated that the patients quality of life and nasal patency as well as surgeon reported outcome measurements remain unaffected following olfactory harvesting. CONCLUSIONS: We have uniquely provided level 2a evidence for the safety of endoscopic biopsy of olfactory mucosa, which does not affect nasal function or the sense of smell compared to standard FESS without biopsy.

OBJECTIVES: To determine the efficacy of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) on olfactory function in chronic rhinosinusitis patients with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) and without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) and to compare the nasal obstruction and symptom evaluation (NOSE) scale before and after surgery. DESIGN: A prospective cohort study SETTING: Royal National Throat and Nose and Ear Hospital, London UK. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred and thirteen patients with CRS; 60 CRSwNP and 53 CRSsNP. OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS: Olfaction was measured using both the University of Pennsylvania Smell Investigation Test (UPSIT) and the 'sense of smell' visual analogue scale (VAS). The NOSE scale, the sinonasal outcome test (SNOT 22) and the Lund-Kennedy (LK) surgeon reported scores were also measured pre- and postoperatively at 6 months. RESULTS: The UPSIT psychophysical measurement significantly improved following ESS in the CRSwNP subgroup as did the patients perceived VAS sense of smell. However, in the CRSsNP subgroup, the improved VAS and UPSIT measurements were not significant. The NOSE, SNOT 22 and LK scores all improved significantly. The olfactory improvement as measured by the UPSIT correlated to the SNOT-22, but a correlation between the NOSE score and UPSIT was not found. CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic sinus surgery significantly improved the patient's perceived and measured sense of smell in the CRSwNP subgroup which is the most surgically responsive CRS subgroup. Additionally, improved olfaction in the CRSwNP subgroup is most likely to improve the patient's quality of life. Endoscopic sinus surgery significantly improved the NOSE scale in both CRS subgroups at 6 months following surgery. [less ▲]
