About this book


The volume provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and exhaustive review of pediatric rhinosinusitis for clinicians, surgeons, researchers, advanced care providers as well as emergency personnel. It provides information regarding pathophysiology of sinusitis, and how to distinguish between the differential diagnoses of a child with a runny nose. It also utilizes current evidence-based guidelines and consensus statements to clarify this condition to the physician and discusses available medical and surgical treatment. Authored by clinicians with long-time expertise with this disease, Pediatric Rhinosinusitis also reviews definitions, burden of disease, microbiology and pathophysiology of the disease; role of adenoids, allergy and asthma as co-morbid conditions; comprehensive medical management; and the role of topical treatment.  It also covers the latest advancements in new treatments such as drug-eluting stents; comprehensive surgical management; and complications of rhinosinusitis. It will be a valuable resource for otolaryngologists, surgeons, residents, medical students and advanced practice providers for years to come.
