Mucociliary clearance is a main defense mechanism of the airway and is impaired in ciliary dyskinesia. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and its characteristics in bronchiectasis patients suspected of harboring ciliary dyskinesia.

This study compares and contrasts the clinical features of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis with 3 uncommon disorders known to be associated with bronchiectasis but with distinctly different underly...
Kartagener Syndrome is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder characterized by primary ciliary dyskinesia and the triad of situs inversus viscerum, chronic sinus disease and bronchiectasis. Its pre...
Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an extrapulmonary manifestation in some individuals with bronchiectasis, but the prevalence of CRS in this population and its clinical impact has not been systematicall...
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare genetically heterogeneous disorder of motile cilia, which leads to recurrent and chronic airway infections. Detailed information about infection causing path...
Concha bullosa is one of the most common anatomical variant found in the patients of chronic rhinosinusitis. To study the role of concha bullosa in patients of chronic rhinosinusitis a prospective cro...
OBJECTIVES: I. Characterize the clinical presentation of patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia. II. Identify the genetic mutations associated with this disease.

Primary ciliary dyskinesia is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by abnormal ciliary movement and disrupted mucociliary clearance. In uncleaned airways, microorganisms and respi...
This is a study evaluating the utility of current Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) diagnostic tests, including nasal nitric oxide testing.
Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.
A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.
A ring of tissue extending from the scleral spur to the ora serrata of the retina. It consists of the uveal portion and the epithelial portion. The ciliary muscle is in the uveal portion and the ciliary processes are in the epithelial portion.
A ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor subunit. It is anchored to the cell surface via GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL LINKAGE and has specificity for binding to CILIARY NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR. It lacks signal transducing domains which are found on the other two subunits of the receptor.
