Powered-assisted partial turbinectomy versus mometasone furoate nasal spray for relief of nasal blockage in chronic or idiopathic rhinosinusitis.
Summary of "Powered-assisted partial turbinectomy versus mometasone furoate nasal spray for relief of nasal blockage in chronic or idiopathic rhinosinusitis."
Abstract Conclusion: Power-assisted turbinectomy is a safe and reliable alternative for patients with nasal blockage if nasal corticosteroid spray therapy is not suitable. Objective: Powered-assisted partial turbinectomy was compared to the use of a corticosteroid nasal spray for relief of nasal obstruction in chronic or idiopathic rhinosinusitis. Methods: Patients were randomized to either power-assisted partial turbinectomy or daily use of mometasone furoate nasal spray for 6 months. Evaluation by peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF) and grading of symptoms by use of visual analog scale was done after 3 and 6 months. Grading of symptoms was also done by use of a questionnaire approximately 30 months after the last visit. Results: PNIF scores improved for all patients, although significantly only for patients on mometasone spray. Patients' self-reported symptoms decreased more for operated patients. Side effects were few and mild in both groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nasal Lavage Fluid
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Nasal Provocation Tests
Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
Blood Gas Monitoring, Transcutaneous
The noninvasive measurement or determination of the partial pressure (tension) of oxygen and/or carbon dioxide locally in the capillaries of a tissue by the application to the skin of a special set of electrodes. These electrodes contain photoelectric sensors capable of picking up the specific wavelengths of radiation emitted by oxygenated versus reduced hemoglobin.
Therapy assisted by the use of a horse and/or its movement, including equine-assisted psychotherapy, horseback riding, and hippotherapy.
