Oct 11th, 2012 - To develop a consensus statement on the appropriate use of computed tomography (CT) for paranasal sinus disease. A modified Delphi method was used to refine expert opinion and reach consensus by the panel. After 3 full Delphi rounds, 33 items reached consensus and 16 statements were dropped because of not reaching consensus or redundancy. The statements that reached consensus were grouped into ...

Jul 28th, 2009 - The introduction of the heptavalent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine has altered the epidemiology of acute otitis media and invasive pneumococcal disease in children. However, sparse data regarding pediatric sinusitis are available since the licensure of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. In this study, sinus cultures which grew Streptococcus pneumoniae at Texas Children's Hospital were evaluated wi...
Sep 4th, 2017 - A non-randomized, multi-center, prospective, clinical study intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of balloon sinuplasty devices in pediatric patients with longstanding sinusitis following failed medical management.

Jul 29th, 2018 - Intracranial extension is one of the most serious and morbid complications of pediatric sinusitis. Managing this complication continues to be challenging even after widespread pneumococcal vaccination adoption. We aim to identify risk factors associated with complicated clinical courses, and to assess for altering microbial communities and increased antibiotic resistance. A retrospective review...

BACKGROUND: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that pediatric sinusitis be a clinical diagnosis, based on persistent rhinosinusitis and cough for more than 10 to 14 days. Limited-spectrum antibiotics are recommended when antibiotic treatment is felt necessary.

Feb 4th, 2015 - We conducted a prospective study to assess (1) the effects of daily nasal irrigation in children with chronic sinonasal symptoms and (2) the impact that treatment had on disease-specific quality of life as assessed by a validated instrument, the five-item Sinus and Nasal Quality of Life Survey (SN-5), and by an overall nasal quality-of-life (NQL) score based on a 10-point faces scale. Our patie...

Feb 7th, 2011 - While the treatment of pediatric sinusitis can be controversial, there is evidence that performing antral lavage in combination with adenoidectomy can improve treatment outcomes. We present an "over the wire" technique using new technology that can improve accuracy and reliability when performing antral lavage. The LUMA fiberoptic light wire (Acclarent Inc.) and Vortex sinus irrigation catheter...

Jun 4th, 2016 - Intracranial complications of rhinosinusitis are rare in the post-antibiotic era. However, due to potentially devastating outcomes, prompt recognition and management are essential. This study aims to perform the first systematic review of the intracranial complications of rhinosinusitis in order to better characterize their clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment, and report a case of f...

Oct 17th, 2015 - We hypothesised that paediatric chronic sinusitis patients might have various clinical characteristics, depending on age, compared symptoms, physical findings and clinical features in younger children and older adolescent patients who underwent endoscopic sinus surgery. A retrospective review of medical records. A total of 195 paediatric patients who underwent Endoscopic sinus surgery were enro...

Apr 10th, 2014 - Acute pediatric sinusitis (APS) is a common complication of pediatric upper respiratory tract infections. Children with all degrees of APS severity may present to emergency departments (EDs) for evaluation and management. This study was designed to analyze the use of imaging in APS presenting to U.S. EDs. A cross-sectional analysis of the 2008 National Emergency Department Sample database was p...

Oct 27th, 2011 - Intracranial complications of pediatric sinusitis are rare but potentially life threatening. These complications include cavernous sinus thrombosis, orbital infection, meningitis, and subdural empyema. Children with these complications may experience significant morbidity from their infection. In such cases, delay in diagnosis and treatment may lead to severe brain damage or death. Emergency ph...

Jun 4th, 2013 - Rhinosinusitis is common in the pediatric population; however, diagnostic and management techniques often differ when compared with adult rhinosinusitis. Multidisciplinary guidelines have outlined the diagnostic criteria for pediatric rhinosinusitis. Although acute rhinosinusitis is a more infectious phenomenon, chronic sinusitis involves a more multifactorial etiology. This article outlines so...

Apr 30th, 2018 - The treatment of pediatric sinusitis continues to be a controversial topic. It has been recommended to treat pediatric chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) with adenoidectomy before proceeding to more invasive techniques. There are concerns regarding side effects of endoscopic sinus surgery in pediatric patients. With the advent of balloon catheter dilation (BCD) as a minimally invasive technique, some...

Jun 14th, 2017 - "Headache and fever" is a common presentation to the urgent care and emergency department setting and can have many etiologies. We present a case of a 10-year-old girl who presented with headache and fever and was found to have intracranial extension of sinusitis despite lack of typical sinus or chronic upper respiratory tract infection symptoms. This case illustrates the need in the emergency ...

Apr 1st, 2018 - The aims of this project were two-fold: 1) To assess pediatric primary care (PCP), pediatric otolaryngology (ENT) and pediatric urgent care (UC) providers' perception of their adherence to the 2013 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) established guidelines for the diagnosis and management of acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (ABRS) in children 1-18 years old and 2) to assess the same providers' p...

Jul 7th, 2009 - We report an unusual case of a displaced maxillary molar and associated dentigerous cyst within the maxillary sinus in an adolescent presenting as recurrent sinusitis. Although a rare cause of sinusitis in children, dentigerous cysts should be included in the differential diagnosis for causes of persistent or recurrent sinusitis in this age group. This report provides further evidence for obtai...

Feb 21st, 2012 - Long-term retrospective evaluation was performed of computed tomography (CT) images and endoscopic findings after endoscopic sinus surgery for 88 cases of chronic pediatric sinusitis with nasal polyps. The objective was to determine the appropriate duration of such postoperative evaluation for children. Fifty-one patients had both sinusitis and nasal polyps (BSP group), and the surgical procedu...
