Nasal irrigation is a cornerstone of treatment for chronic rhinosinusitis. The purpose of this study was to quantify irrigation penetration to the sinuses following balloon sinuplasty and functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).

Middle meatal antrostomy (MMA) provides limited access to the anteromedial and inferior aspect of the maxillary sinus (MS) often resulting in residual disease and inflammatory burden. Newer extended p...
Balloon sinuplasty has become an increasingly popular option for patients undergoing surgical treatment of sinusitis. This study analyzes utilization and growth of these procedures across a large coho...
To quantify and analyze the concurrent performance of rhinoplasty (RP) (with or without septoplasty) and functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).
During endovascular treatment for complex intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) of the transverse-sigmoid sinus, it is difficult to preserve the patency of the dural sinus. The authors des...
Responsible prescribing of postoperative pain medications is necessary in combatting the current opioid epidemic in the United States. The goal of this study was to determine which clinical factors af...
To assess the efficacy of intra-sinus installation of a poloxamer gel that releases antibiotics and corticosteroids topically after balloon sinuplasty in chronic sinusitis patients with or...
This study will assess the effectiveness of MEDIHONEY® sinus rinses (alone or in combination with intranasal corticosteroids) vs. intranasal corticosteroid sinus rinses on mucosal healing...
This pilot study will evaluate the accuracy and ease of use of the LUMA light wire and whether trans-illumination of the sinuses is comparable to fluoroscopy during balloon dilation proced...

Emergence agitation is one of the common postoperative complications after functional endoscopic sinus surgery（FESS). The objective of present study is to explore the effectiveness of bu...
The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.

Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
