Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that develops because of sensitivity to gluten-containing grains in genetically disposed individuals. Nasal mucociliary clearance is the most important protect...
The aim of the present study was to measure nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) time in the patients with MS and to compare the findings with healthy population.
Children with adenoid hypertrophy (AH) have impaired respiratory system defense mechanisms, such as mucociliary clearance. We hypothesized that AH negatively affects one of the most important aspects ...
The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain whether nitric oxide (NO) released into the circulation by a noninvasive technology called whole body periodic acceleration (WBPA) could increase muc...
In rhinoplasty, the nasal dorsum represents an important aspect for form and function. Surgical management should be performed accurately to avoid complications. The goal for dorsal preservation is to...
This study intends to evaluate the nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) by determining the value obtained for saccharin transit time (STT) test over the course of 12 hours following a single ...
The purpose of this research study is to test the ability of Mucinex, an oral, over-the-counter, FDA approved expectorant) to stimulate the clearance of inhaled particles from the subject'...
This purpose of this study is to determine whether nasal delivery of heated and humidified air for a period of 4 hours will improve the clearance of mucus from the lungs of patients with c...
The objective of this study is to determine the effect of airway surface liquid (ASL) volume on mucociliary clearance in cystic fibrosis (CF). A two-isotope nuclear medicine technique will...
Professionals working in polluted areas may present increased airways symptoms and dysfunction. Rhinopharyngeal retrograde clearance (RRC) has been used to improve mucus clearance in infan...
A chronic inflammation in which the NASAL MUCOSA gradually changes from a functional to a non-functional lining without mucociliary clearance. It is often accompanied by degradation of the bony TURBINATES, and the foul-smelling mucus which forms a greenish crust (ozena).
A non-specific host defense mechanism that removes MUCUS and other material from the LUNGS by ciliary and secretory activity of the tracheobronchial submucosal glands. It is measured in vivo as mucus transfer, ciliary beat frequency, and clearance of radioactive tracers.
The discharge of substances from the pulmonary capillary blood into the alveolar space to be exhaled or removed by MUCOCILIARY CLEARANCE.
Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.
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.
