Prospective Study on the Efficacy of Exclusive Odontological and Medical Treatment in Chronic Dental Maxillary Sinusitis

2019-09-17 02:47:45 | BioPortfolio


The study will be offered to patients for whom chronic maxillary sinusitis will be diagnosed in the first ENT (ear, nose and throat) consultation. These patients will then be seen in a stomatology consultation to determine whether or not a dental cause is objective


Chronic maxillary sinusitis is an inflammatory condition and/or infectious diseases of the maxillary sinus, which last longer than 12 weeks. Those whose the origin is dental, are well described, and yet under-diagnosed most of the time due to a lack of well-defined diagnostic criteria and literature. There is controversy in the various studies about their prevalence. Their management and in particular the therapeutic sequence, is not the subject of any recommendation and involves only a few clinical studies. Their consequences on the patient's general health and quality of life are important. The lack of knowledge about them often leads to diagnostic errors and therefore to a persistence of symptomatology. Moreover, their complications when they are not or incorrectly treated, although rare, can be dramatic (occulo-orbital or endo-cranial complications for example).

Preliminary work in the form of a retrospective study was carried out within of the Centre Hospitalier intercommunal de Créteil in 2015. In view of the results the investigators wanted to set up a clinical trial with the following objectives measure the prevalence of chronic maxillary sinusitis of dental origin and measure the effectiveness of exclusive dental and medical treatment, which could avoid surgical intervention under general anaesthesia, at the higher morbidity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the MAXILLARY SINUS. In many cases, it is caused by an infection of the bacteria HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE; STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE; or STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.

Transverse sectioning and repositioning of the maxilla. There are three types: Le Fort I osteotomy for maxillary advancement or the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort II osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort III osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures with fracture of one or more facial bones. Le Fort III is often used also to correct craniofacial dysostosis and related facial abnormalities. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1203 & p662)

Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the SPHENOID SINUS. Isolated sphenoid sinusitis is uncommon. It usually occurs in conjunction with other paranasal sinusitis.

Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.

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.
