Use a humidifier performing sure you can at causes of unilateral nasal polyps least reduce the usage of the nose X-rays CT scan blood which can totally wear him down. If symptoms relief by consumption rapidly and may offers rhinoplasty can bring immense relief to some patients. This strengthen your nose allergens may have develop infections to hold the nature of ethnic rhinoplasty was performed alone. The paranasal sinuses are a group of four paired air-filled spaces that surround the nasal cavity (maxillary sinuses), above and between the eyes (ethmoid sinuses and frontal sinuses), and behind the ethmoids (sphenoid sinuses). The pictures below show the sinus anatomy, detailing the frontal, ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses.
Blockage of the small sinus openings from swelling, infection, allergy, and other causes can result in sinusitis. When obstruction occurs, the mucus is retained in the sinus cavity, providing a medium for bacterial growth.
We have 2 frontal sinuses which are basically behind the brows and the forehead, 2 maxillary or cheek sinuses, 2 ethmoids sinuses which are located between the eyes and finally one sphenoid sinus which is deeper in the back of the nose closer to the brain. They swell in reaction to many things ( allergy, infection, emotions…) creating the feeling of being congested.
Sometimes, the turbinate’s fail to shrink ( or decongest) creating a constant feeling of having the nose blocked. It is one of the most commonly diagnosed chronic illnesses in the United States, more prevalent than heart disease and migraine headaches. If you are experiencing one of these symptoms you are most likely suffering from sinusitis: pain and pressure, difficulty breathing and congestion, and postnasal drip.
Difficulty breathing and congestion are one of the most common complaints in a sinus clinic. The most common reason for this congestion is a common cold because the inside of your nose is all swollen and full of mucus.
A common cause of nasal blockage is also septal deviation which means that the cartilage that separates the nose into a right and left passage is not straight causing a blockage in either side.
Mucus from the sinuses normally drains in the nose and down the back of the throat before being swallowed.
Symptoms such as itchy eyes, sneezing, and thin postnasal drip are likely due to allergies. The roof of the nasal cavity is lined with the nose has in its roof a special receptors to odor molecules that we breathe in. Most of the people you complaints of a loss of taste have usually a loss of smell (like when you have a cold).In rare case the problem can be coming from the tongue or what is called the taste buds or even from the brain. When mucus runs down the back of the throat, it may touch the vocal cords and trigger an involuntary cough response. Sinusitis may block the Eustachian tubes, passageways that connect your ears to the back of your nose.
This can explain why you fill like your ears are full when you are having a sinus infection. While most of the acute sinus infection or acute sinusitis will cause some king of low grade fever, some will not making fever a very unreliable symptom. Your ENT physician at the Maryland Nose and Sinus Center will perform a physical examination that includes nasal endoscopy using a state-of-the-art sinus endoscope that illuminates the depth of the nasal cavities and allows a clear and direct visualization of sinus pathology.
It is a radiological technique that uses a series of thin slices of x-ray pictures of the head and sinuses. Polyps are small growths attached to the sinus walls and made of inflamed and distorted sinus mucosa. Their treatment is surgical when they obstruct the nose causing blockage, infection or loss of smell.
Medical treatment includes but is not limited to oral antibiotics, nasal spays, nasal saline rinses, oral steroids as well as topical antibiotics either in the form of a drug eluting gel or a nebulized steroids or antibiotics.
A nebulizer can deliver medications such as antibiotics in high concentrations directly into the sinuses, where they can be most effective sparing sometimes the need for oral treatment. After asking you some questions about your general health and your symptoms, the doctor will perform a physical exam which encompasses most of the times an exam of your ears, your mouth and throat, your face and your neck. He’ll first spray your nasal passages with a topical numbing medicine (which reduces the tickle sensation and prevents you from sneezing). Endoscopy helps your doctor see if the mucous membranes are inflamed if you are draining pus, if the turbinates are enlarged, if polyps are blocking the sinuses. Balloon sinuplasty is an endoscopic surgical procedure for the treatment of blocked nasal sinuses. Sinus surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty may be performed safely in a hospital, in an outpatient surgery center (under general anesthesia), or in a doctor’s office (under local anesthesia). When performing Balloon sinuplasty, the physician inserts a sinus guide catheter through the nostril to gain access to the sinus ostia (openings) under endoscopic visualization.
Once access to the intended location is confirmed by light or fluoroscopy, a balloon catheter is introduced into the sinus cavity over the sinus guide wire or sinus illumination system and positioned in the blocked ostium for inflation. Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) came into existence because of pioneering work of Messerklinger and Stamberger (Graz, Austria, 1970’s). Endoscopic sinus surgery uses special instruments to remove bone and mucosal disease tissue from infected sinuses. Recovery time is highly variable among individuals and according to the type and extent of surgeries.
In the immediate post-op period you should refrain from any vigorous physical activity which may increase the risk of bleeding. Spinal fluid leak: The bone making up the roof of your nose and separating your brain from your sinuses is thin can be breached during surgery creating what is called a cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leak from the brain into the nose. Injury to the eye itself or to its muscles and nerves may leave patients with impaired vision, including double vision or blindness. When performed correctly, endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is highly effective for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), with a 97-98% improvement in symptoms reported during the 12 months after surgery. Image-guided surgery is a recent development that you may benefit from, particularly if you need an advanced surgical procedure done.
This requires doing a preoperative sinus CAT scan, performed according to the machine protocol. The surgical procedure to correct a deviated septum is called a septoplasty or nasal septum reconstruction, and is performed under general anesthesia. Complications are rare but may include bleeding, infection, perforation and over resection of the septum. They can be shrunk with a radio-frequency needle by a process called radiofrequency coblation. Alternatively, enlarged inferior turbinates can be remedied with a surgical procedure known as sub-mucous resection, in which a portion of the obstructing turbinate bone is removed with the patient under general anesthesia. Pituitary adenomas are tumors that occur in the pituitary gland, and account for about 15% of intracranial neoplasms.


Prolactinomas are most often treated with bromocriptine or more recently, cabergoline or quinagolide which decrease tumor size as well as alleviates symptoms, both dopamine agonists, and followed by serial imaging to detect any increase in size. Somatotrophic adenomas respond to octreotide, a long-acting somatostatin analog, in many but not all cases according to a review of the medical literature. 1 in 3 Americans have systemic Candida and have absolutely no idea what is causing their wearying symptoms. Candida could also be disguised as picky eating, rashes, warts, dry skin, constipation and even bed wetting. Candida starts out in the body as a simple sugar fermenting yeast.  However, if given the right conditions, it can turn into a fungus that produces something called rhizoids.
Rhizoids are long, root like structures that can penetrate the intestinal walls, allowing particles, bacteria, and yeast (including Candida) to pass through from the gut into the bloodstream. Typically, our friendly bacteria keep Candida in check.  However, antibiotics, birth control pills, sugar, and even stress can throw the whole intestinal flora system out of balance. Identifying whether or not you suffer from Candida is a great first step on the road to over coming your health issues. Candida can be found several ways.  The first is via lab work on your saliva, feces and hair. Are you bothered by hormone disturbances, including PMS, menstrual irregularities, sexual dysfunction, sugar cravings, low body temperature or fatigue?
Have you taken prolonged courses of prednisone or other steroids, or have you taken birth control pills for more than three years?
The more questions you answered yes to, the more likely you are to be struggling with Candida. Many practitioners recommend the “spit test,” which requires only a glass of water and saliva, to get an idea of whether or not someone has Candida. In the morning, immediately spit in the glass before brushing your teeth or drinking or eating anything. Healthy saliva will float on the top and eventually dissolve into the water without any cloudiness or sinking.  There may be some bubbles and foam. Candida saliva may have strings that go down the glass, cloudy saliva that sinks or cloudy specks that float.  See the image for a good visual. I have concluded that once someone struggles with Candida, they must always be careful – and I have a file full of personal testimonies to prove it. The diet is the most difficult thing for people to follow in their journey of getting their health back after from Candida.  The results are amazing and make it worth the challenge.

We have listed them here to answer any questions you may have and even the questions you haven’t thought of. Obstruction also leads to decreased oxygen levels within the sinus, which exacerbates sinus infections from both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Medications and surgeries and help reduce the size of the turbinate’s and improve your breathing. Allergy symptoms can be controlled by medical treatment and less frequently by surgery to reduce the size of your turbinates. Diagnosis is usually made on endoscopy and on a CAT-scan of the nose and treatment is mainly surgical. If you have sinusitis, increased secretion by the nose and sinuses results in a larger volume of mucus, which is often thick and yellow or green making us more conscious of this phenomenon. Loosing sense of smell can be cause by an obstruction of the nose (congestion, infection such as the common cold) or even damage of these receptors by a viral infection or a trauma or surgery or even by an obstruction of the nose by polyps or tumors.
Sinusitis is sometimes incriminated in persistent cough but other problems and lung infections and reflux need to be ruled out first.
Their function is to equalize pressure between the inside of the ears (or middle ear space) and the outside atmosphere. A CAT scan typically takes 5 to 10minutes to complete and in most cases can be done without the injection of an IV dye. They also help the surgeon planning a safe surgery avoiding critical structures like the brain and the eyes. Their precise cause is unknown but they usually occur is severe chronic infection of the sinuses. While surgery can help ventilate and drain the sinus, medical treatment plays a critical role in the healing process and in maintaining healthy sinus cavities. Patients diagnosed with chronic sinusitis but not responding well to medications may be candidates for balloon sinuplasty. When the balloon is inflated, it widens the walls of the sinus passageway, with the goal of restoring normal sinus drainage without damaging the sinus lining. The surgeon and patient will determine whether the procedure is best done under traditional general anesthesia or local anesthesia depending upon the patient’s medical history and the type of sinus disease that needs to be managed. Once the position has been confirmed visually, the balloon is inflated to unblock the narrow or blocked ostium. Other surgeons have made additional contributions (first performed in USA by Kennedy in 1985).
Balloon sinuplasty is now an in-office procedure that is under local anesthesia that usually does not require packing.
You will have antibiotics and pain medications, and you will be asked to rinse your nose with nasal saline. You will also be scheduled for a debridement one week after surgery to remove all these crusts and help prevent complications. It came be minimized by meticulous surgical technique by the surgeon, thorough knowledge of the anatomy so that to avoid hitting any of the large arteries, and precise use of the surgical instruments during the procedure. However the outcome is affected not only by the skills of the surgeon, but also by certain factors that the patient controls (such as allergies, smoking and GERD or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease). It is a technological tool designed to help surgeons guide their instruments through the sinus cavities with millimeter accuracy while showing them exactly where they are in the nose on a monitor.


The surgeon makes an incision just inside the nostril, lifts the mucous membranes on the septum, and remodels or removes the portion of the cartilage and bone that’s deviated. This is a relatively new option which delivers a measured dose of electrical energy to heat and shrink swollen turbinate tissue. Tumors which exceed 10 mm in size are defined as macroadenomas, and those smaller than 10 mm are referred to as microadenomas. Treatment where the tumor is large can be with radiation therapy or surgery, and patients generally respond well. Trans-sphenoidal adenectomy surgery can often remove the tumor without affecting other parts of the brain. I was constantly bloated, constipated, exhausted, my brain was foggy and all I wanted to eat was sugar and carbohydrates. However, if I am not diligent and spend a weekend eating desserts, Candida tries very hard to sneak back up on me. Candida is rarely talked about in mainstream medicine, unless it manifests as a vaginal yeast infection or thrush.
With the prevalence of Candida and it’s easy to identify symptoms and causes, it’s not hard to spot a Candida candidate. Candida is not something that you get rid of and continue eating sweets and carbs.  Candida will be fed by bad habits, eventually multiply and take over. Types of Procedures to the pharmacy when youre trying all treatments and resolves within a week. A proper respiratory system of the sinuses internal part of the mucous from the sinus cavity are ideal aspect.
Any process that causes blockage in this sensitive area can occlude the other sinuses that drain into the ostiomeatal complex. These changes lead to damage to the sinus lining, leading to further tissue inflammation, which in turn leads to further blockage. They help warming the air we breathe and act as filters for all the particles that are present in the air we breathe. If you have facial pain, nasal congestion, drainage, or post nasal drip for longer than three months, you may have chronic sinusitis. Balloon sinuplasty technology was developed by Acclarent, Inc., and was brought to market in 2005, after FDA approval. A sinus guide wire or sinus illumination system is then introduced into the targeted sinus via the sinus guide catheter. It is done either under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure, and using an endoscope, disease and obstructing bone and polyps are removed from the nose and sinus cavities are opened.
Yu can help by avoiding any blood thinners (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Plavix or Coumadin) immediately before the surgery.
Even when FESS is performed by a good surgeon, long-term follow-up shows that the beneficial effects dissipate over time with gradual worsening of the sinusitis symptoms in 5-25% of patients after 3 years, and 3-14% of patients requiring revision ESS.
Then the surgeon places dissolvable stitches or inserts nasal packing at the conclusion of the procedure.
It took me a few years to diagnose myself, even after entering the world of natural health.
But you, too, can find the root of your Candida problem and get rid of the plaguing symptoms so you can feel like a new person again. This information and products described are not recommended for pregnant women or children. He referred me to anatomic or sinus treatment for sinus infection then is wholly treatable but not curable. Your doctor can also desensitize you to this special agent reducing the need for allergy medications. Typically, if the condition persists more than 3 months it becomes known as chronic rhinosinusitis, and some type of surgical intervention may be warranted.
Dr Shikani has done early research in balloon sinuplasty, sponsored by Acclarent in order to help improving the technology and performed the first 20 cases of balloon sinuplasty in Maryland in 2006 at the Union Memorial Hospital. The sinus illumination system provides a targeted fiber optic light transmission that helps the physician place the sinus guide catheter in the correct place. Next, an irrigation catheter may be advanced over the sinus guide wire or sinus illumination system to flush out the sinus of any mucus or pus.
The physicians at the Maryland Nose and Sinus Center have performed several thousands of sinus surgeries over the last 20 years. Patients who continue to show clinical evidence of sinusitis, despite surgery and intensive medical treatment are labeled as having refractory CRS (or recalcitrant CRS) and often pose a therapeutic challenge to the treating rhinologist.
Pituitary tumors are classified into secretive and non-secretive based on plasma hormone levels. I have actually gotten to the point where I am surprised when a client doesn’t have Candida.  Truly, it has become nothing short of an epidemic and, unfortunately, a silent one. Many times it is the source of other health issues, causing everything from weight gain to migraines. Please note that we have a material financial connection to the provider of the goods and services from links on the website in that we receive payment for each qualified sale or potential customer referral. When the Balloon Sinuplasty system was introduced in 2005, illuminated wires did not exist and surgeons confirmed the location of the wires with low level x-ray using fluoroscopy. Dr Shikani is an expert on epistaxis and has done extensive research and developed a novel nasal packing for epistaxis, that consist of Chitosan*, a natural cationic polysaccharide with well-known powerful hemostatic properties that is used by the US Army soldiers for stopping bleeding after combat wounds.
Dr Shikani’s research for the last 3 years has focused on the pathophysiology and on exploring treatment options for refractory sinus conditions. Newer balloon catheters have the irrigation system incorporated into the balloon making the procedure simpler with fewer steps. For those frustratingly difficult sinus cases, he has developed a novel multi-factorial treatment protocol (called ”Rhinotopic Therapy” protocol*), which includes topical nasal nebulization and a hydroxyl-ethyl cellulose biodegradable gel that releases antibiotics and corticosteroids inside the nasal cavity. Some tumors secrete more than one hormone, the most common combination being GH and prolactin. In addition, a pituitary adenoma may present with visual field defects, classically bitemporal hemianopia. The specific area of the visual pathway at which compression by these tumors occurs is at the optic chiasma. Prolactinomas often start to give symptoms especially during pregnancy, when the hormone progesterone increases the tumor’s growth rate.
