Diagnosis was made by doing regurgitation test, lacrimal sac syringing and diagnostic nasal endoscopy
Our inclusion criterion for surgery was based upon patients with positive findings of polyposis by CT scan and nasal endoscopy
A diagnosis of rhinolithiasis may be solely clinical, occurring after direct visualization by anterior rhinoscopy or nasal endoscopy
All patients had nasal endoscopy
and sinus CT scans that were negative.
Diagnosis of Adult Chronic Rhinosinusitis: Can Nasal endoscopy
predict intrasinus disease?
All patients coming into the endoscopy unit for a nasal endoscopy
revealed a polypoid mass on the left lateral nasal wall arising near the uncinate process and protruding into the middle meatus.
, rhinomanometry, nasal cytology and odor threshold measurements were performed in subjects randomized to daily nasal irrigations with either thermal water or isotonic sodium chloride solution for 1 month.
was impossible on the left side and was normal on the right side with minimal nasopharyngeal adenoid hypertrophy.
was normal, except for irregular nasopharyngeal mucosa.
Generally these bleeders are not visible without the use of nasal endoscopy
, especially if they occur on the lateral wall of the nasal cavity, a complex anatomical area characterised by the turbinate bones and meati, which have recesses between them.
If a physician looks in the nose and can't see any of those signs, then "we recommend an x-ray to confirm the diagnosis" if nasal endoscopy
is not offered in the practice setting, he continued.
All patients were required to have evidence of sinus infection on either plain films (Waters view) or nasal endoscopy
In order to be enrolled in the clinical trial, patients must have had well-documented CS based on a history of the requisite symptoms, nasal endoscopy
findings, and CT scan demonstrating characteristic mucosal changes in the sinuses.
