  • Quantitative Analysis of Surgical Working Space During Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery. [Journal Article]
    J Neurol Surg B Skull Base 2019; 80(5):469-473Davies JC, Chan HHL, … Lee JM
  • Objectives Selective dissection of intranasal anatomy may improve visualization and maneuverability at the skull base. We aimed to quantify the dimensions of working space and angles achieved following sequential removal of intranasal structures using an endoscopic transphenoidal approach to the skull base. Methods Cone beam computed tomography scans of four cadaveric heads were obtained for regi…
  • Preseptal and Postseptal Orbital Cellulitis of Odontogenic Origin. [Case Reports]
    Cureus 2019; 11(7):e5087Stead TG, Retana A, … Ganti L
  • The authors present a case of combined preseptal and postseptal cellulitis of odontogenic origin. The infection started as a dental abscess associated with a first maxillary molar. The infection spread into the paranasal sinus, developed into a pansinusitis, and then spread into the preseptal and postseptal tissues. In addition to extraction of the infected tooth, the patient underwent bilateral …
  • Effects of sphenoid surgery on nasal irrigation delivery. [Journal Article]
    Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019; 9(9):971-976Grayson JW, Cavada M, … Harvey RJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Increasing sphenoid ostial size improves nasal irrigation penetration. We propose that greater sphenoid sinusectomy size allows for improved lavage and irrigation penetration. Complete removal of the anterior face appears to mitigate pooling of irrigation.
  • Use of ventriculostomy in the treatment of septic cavernous sinus thrombosis (SCST). [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(4)Thomas J, Fayad M, … Richards BF
  • We present a novel treatment with the use of intraventricular antibiotics delivered through a ventriculostomy in a patient who developed septic cavernous sinus thrombosis after sinus surgery. A 65-year-old woman presented with acute on chronic sinusitis. The patient underwent a diagnostic left maxillary antrostomy, ethmoidectomy, sphenoidotomy and sinusotomy. Postoperatively, the patient experien…
  • Sphenoid sinus mucocele masquerading as retrobulbar optic neuritis: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Rom J Ophthalmol 2018 Oct-Dec; 62(4):312-316Kaveh AA, Mahya GA, … Mostafa SS
  • CONCLUSIONS: This report emphasized the important role of imaging in differentiating between different causes of optic neuropathies. A high level of clinical skepticism along with appropriate imaging studies can help diagnose rare causes. With timely management, gratifying results may be achieved.
  • Scedosporium apiospermum invasive sinusitis presenting as extradural abscess. [Journal Article]
    Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2019; 136(2):119-121Khoueir N, Verillaud B, Herman P
  • CONCLUSIONS: S. apiospermum is a fungal species rarely isolated in CIFR. The present case was revealed by an atypical clinical presentation including isolated sphenoidal infection complicated by bilateral abducens nerve paralysis and extradural abscess. Imaging was also unusual, revealing features of fibrous dysplasia or bacterial osteomyelitis rather than the typical pseudoneoplastic appearance. The patient was successfully treated by surgery alone, which may therefore be sufficient treatment in immunocompetent subjects.
