  • Prerequisites for a dry powder inhaler for children with cystic fibrosis. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2017; 12(8):e0183130.Lexmond AJ, Hagedoorn P, … de Boer AH
  • Correct inhalation technique is essential for effective use of dry powder inhalers (DPIs), as their effectiveness largely depends on the patient's inhalation manoeuvre. Children are an especially challenging target population for DPI development due to the large variability in understanding and inspiratory capacities. We previously performed a study in which we determined the prerequisites for a …
  • Endoscopic bilateral congenital choanal atresia repair of 112 cases, evolving concept and technical experience. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol. 2016 Jun; 85:40-5.Eladl HM, Khafagy YW
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic repair of bilateral choanal atresia is a safe, effective technique with minimal complication. Usage of 30 degree sinuscope permits better visualization and higher accessibility for the surgical instruments. Surgically formed wide single neochoana with removal of all intervening tissue surroundings, and good follow up permit higher success rate without stenting. Advanced learning curve permits tailoring the perfect surgery with minimal tissue injury and better outcome. Post-operative choanal dilatation using esophageal dilators under endoscopic examination decrease the need for stenting and second-look evaluation.
  • Effect of inhaler design variables on paediatric use of dry powder inhalers. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2014; 9(6):e99304.Lexmond AJ, Kruizinga TJ, … de Boer AH
  • Age appropriateness is a major concern of pulmonary delivery devices, in particular of dry powder inhalers (DPIs), since their performance strongly depends on the inspiratory flow manoeuvre of the patient. Previous research on the use of DPIs by children focused mostly on specific DPIs or single inspiratory parameters. In this study, we investigated the requirements for a paediatric DPI more broa…
  • [The giant fungal body in the sphenoidal sinus and the destruction of the skull base]. [Case Reports]
    Vestn Otorinolaringol. 2012
  • The objective of the present study was to estimate the efficacy of the optical systems with the variable visual field angle applied for the endoscopic interventions on the paranasal sinuses. The authors report a clinical observation of the patient presenting with the giant fungal body in the sphenoidal sinus responsible for the partial destruction of the bone canal of the optic nerve and the inte…
  • Sinuscopy in patients with titanium implants in the nose and sinuses. [Journal Article]
    Scand J Plast Reconstr Surg Hand Surg. 2004; 38(2):86-93.Petruson B
  • Foreign bodies in the nose and sinuses can cause chronic infections. Long titanium fixtures through the maxilla to the zygomatic bone were followed up with a sinuscope in 14 patients after more than one year. There were no signs of infection or inflammation in the mucosa around the fixtures.
  • Intranasal visualization for nasolacrimal duct intubation. [Journal Article]
    Am J Ophthalmol. 1995 May; 119(5):655-7.Eisenbaum AM, McClatchey SK, Pashley NR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Placement and retrieval of silicone stents can be accomplished with less trauma than with a blind sweep technique. Additionally, the valve of Hasner can be seen and the creation of false passages avoided.
  • Recent advances in microsurgery of the maxillary antrum. [Journal Article]
    Acta Otolaryngol. 1975 Jul-Aug; 80(1-2):161-6.Reynolds WV, Brandow EC
  • A new and more detailed approach to the maxillary sinus is described. It has the advantage of avoiding the canine fossa and potential dental trauma. This procedure is performed intranasally and is accompanied by less morbidity than with the Caldwell-Luc operation. The opening into the sinus is small, thus minimizing bone removal. However, the interior of the antrum can be visualized sufficiently …
