Determinants of Olfactory Dysfunction in Chronic Rhinosinusitis

2016-03-29 10:08:22 | BioPortfolio


Olfactory dysfunction is a cardinal symptom of chronic rhinosinusitis, a disease which affects 12.5% of the adult population across all racial and ethnic groups. Previous research has documented olfactory deficit in 68% of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis and 20% with complete anosmia, suggesting that olfactory dysfunction affects over 25 million individuals in the United States with chronic rhinosinusitis. This proposed investigation will be used to predict olfactory outcomes following treatments for chronic rhinosinusitis and gain insights into mechanisms of olfactory dysfunction in this population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.

A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.

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.
