Abstract

Materials and methods

A randomized controlled trial was conducted from August 2012 to July 2013; a total of 153 cases were considered and divided into two groups. Group A received levocetirizine, and group B received mometasone furoate nasal spray.

Aims and objectives

The aims and objectives of this study were to determine the total ocular symptom score (TOSS) according to the severity of allergic rhinitis, determine the TOSS before medication, and determine the effectiveness of antihistamines (levocetirizine) and intranasal corticosteroid spray (mometasone furoate).

Results

The results indicate average TOSS to be in intermittent mild (51.32), intermittent moderate to severe (55.86), persistent mild (44.50), and persistent moderate to severe (52.02). Chi-square test to compare the relief between groups A and B did not show any statistical significance after 1st (p = 0.8951) and 4th weeks (p = 0.9758) of follow-up.

Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of coblation and microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty in reducing nasal obstruction due to inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH).

Background

A comprehensive search of articles in English language was performed in PubMed using the keywords coblation turbinoplasty, coblation inferior turbinate reduction, microdebrider turbinoplasty, microdebrider assisted inferior turbinate reduction.

Review results

Primary search yielded 41 results with only two fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria. In both studies, patients were assessed objectively as well as subjectively. Improvement in nasal obstruction was similar in both coblation and microdebrider groups up to 6 months of follow-up in both studies. However, in the study by Lee and Lee (2006) at 12 months postoperative follow-up, microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty patients showed a better improvement in nasal obstruction both objectively on acoustic rhinometry and subjectively as compared with the coblation group (p < 0.05).

Conclusion

Despite getting better results with microdebriderassisted turbinoplasty in one of the study, it can be safely concluded that longer postsurgical follow-up period with bigger sample size is required to adequately comment on the extra benefit offered by either coblation or microdebrider.

Clinical significance

As and when further research is planned on comparing benefits of different powered instruments for turbinate reduction, it will be wise to prolong the follow-up period with increased sample size.

Giant Frontal Sinus Osteoma with Orbital Extension: Case Report and Review of Literature

Abstract

Aim

The authors hereby present a case of giant frontal osteoma, i.e., not so rare but in the present case, the size and orbital involvement of this tumor make it a unique case.

Introduction

Paranasal sinus osteoma most commonly presents in frontal sinuses. Their growth is slow, and patients usually seek physician's advice only for cosmetic reasons.

Case description

A 20-year-old male presented to us with the complaint of swelling over forehead and medial side of left eye for last 1 year. After investigations, he was diagnosed with frontal osteoma, which was excised en bloc using bicoronal approach. There was a dural tear and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak intraoperatively, which was managed using pericranial flap. He remained free of disease in 2 years of follow-up.

Conclusion

Frontal sinus osteomas are slow-growing bony tumors, which are amenable to complete cure provided adequate preoperative planning and meticulous surgical technique are used.

Clinical significance

This case highlights the need for outreach of tertiary care to remote areas where medical facilities are scarce. Patients usually visit the apex hospitals only when the disease has grown significantly. The authors also would like to reiterate that computed tomography (CT) scan is the best modality for the diagnosis of paranasal osteoma. Small dural tears, if encountered during removal of large osteomas, can be repaired using pericranial flap.
