Abstract

Nasal polyps were once believed to originate in sinus cavities, and from there to pass through ostia and into the nasal cavity. However, data gained from subsequent anatomic studies revealed that they can actually originate in numerous locations in the sinonasal area. We report...

Bipolar microdebrider may reduce intraoperative blood loss and operating time during nasal polyp surgery

August 10, 2012  |  Nishant Kumar, MD; Raj Sindwani, MD, FACS

Abstract

Bleeding during endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) can interrupt the flow of the procedure and increase the risk of complications. Advances in microdebrider design now allow for bleeding to be controlled by bipolar energy during the suctioning and shaving of...

Expression and clinical significance of PLUNC protein in nasal polyp and chronic sinusitis tissue

July 5, 2012  |  Min-man Wu, MD; Hong Sun, MD, PhD; Qiong Nan, MD

Abstract

We conducted a study to validate the expression of PLUNC (palate, lung, and nasal epithelial clone) protein in nasal polyp and chronic sinusitis tissue by immunohistochemistry. We also explored the relationship between the intensity of positive...
