With an aging population, it is important to understand age-related anatomic changes in the nasal cavity and cribriform plate (CP) that may have clinical implications.

It has been proposed that fibrin tissue adhesive (FTA) can act as an effective alternative to nasal packing in managing the postoperative symptoms of endoscopic nasal surgery.

Allergen specific immunoglobulin can be present in the nasal mucosa of patients with non-allergic rhinitis (NAR). This condition is defined as local allergic rhinitis. However, the reported presence of nasal specific immunoglobulin E (nspIgE) among NAR is variable. The aim of this review was to summarize the studies which reported the presence of nspIgE among patients diagnosed as NAR.

Nasal obstruction is one of the most frequent and bothersome symptoms in rhinosinal disease. Although we are able to measure nasal airflow, the correlation between the feeling of nasal obstruction and objective measurements has been shown to be average at most. A significant proportion of the European population has a more or less deviated nasal septum and deviated septa have received a lot of attention from otorhinolaryngologists. In sharp contrast is the amount of hard evidence concerning septoplasty with or without turbinate surgery.

The 5-dimensional EuroQol questionnaire (EQ-5D) is validated to measure general health-related quality of life (QOL). Our objective was to determine the responsiveness and minimal clinically important difference (MCID) of the EQ-5D health utility value (EQ-5D HUV) and visual analog scale (EQ-5D VAS) in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).

The June 2018 issue of Rhinology paves the way for real-life implementation of Precision Medicine in Rhinology, with Predictive Medicine in the center of attention. Physicians treating patients with rhinologic disorders might find it extremely interesting to find reports on predictors of success of medical or surgical interventions. Prediction of success of treatment is crucial to allow the patient become an active partner in the decision-making process of medical or surgical treatment. Defining the clinical phenotype of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis responding well to either revision surgery or long-term oral macrolide treatment represents a true challenge.

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) can be divided to CRS without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) and eosinophilic and non-eosinophilic CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). There is little evidence on the efficacy of glucocorticoids and macrolides in different phenotypic patients. The aim of this study was to compare the benefit of glucocorticoids and macrolides following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) in different phenotypic CRS.

The treatment strategy of squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal vestibule (SCCNV) is controversial. The objective of this study is to investigate the role of surgery, which is the preferred treatment option at our institution.

The aim of the present study was to provide an insight into medical treatment practices among patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) in Germany. An investigation of ICD codes and ATC classes of CRS patients in general and otolaryngology offices in Germany should reveal the prevalent treatment behaviors of German physicians.

Olfactory training (OT) has been shown to increase olfactory performance in healthy subjects and patients with post-traumatic or post-infectious olfactory loss. Morphological correlates such as olfactory bulb volume increase and gray matter changes suggest central changes in olfactory brain areas following olfactory exposure. Some evidence from animal studies indicates peripheral changes upon OT whereas no such data exist in humans. This study explores the question whether changes in olfaction following OT are associated with alterations of the electro-olfactogram (EOG) derived from the olfactory epithelium.
