  1. 1. Chronic Rhinosinusitis with Nasal Polyps - Symptoms, Heredity and Genetics

    Author : Anton Bohman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nasal Polyps; Genetics; Signs and Symptoms; Genome-Wide Association Study; Gene Expression;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is characterized by long-term inflammation of the paranasal sinuses combined with bilateral glassy protuberances from the middle meatus of the nasal cavity. This disease has an unknown cause, affects roughly 3% of the population and causes symptoms from the upper airways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nasal polyps. A clinical study of endoscopic score systems and epidemiology

    Author : Leif Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nasal polyps; score system; endoscope; epidemiology; airways; HRQL;

    Abstract : Introduction: Nasal polyps are a common disease, the etiology and pathogenesis of which are still unclear. For diagnosis, a nasal endoscope is essential, while for follow-up treatment, a reliable score system is necessary. The existing score systems consist of few score steps and measure only large changes in polyp size. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nasal obstruction – impact on insomnia symptoms and sleep-disordered breathing

    Author : Caroline Bengtsson; Eva Lindberg; Lars Jonsson; Jenny Theorell-Haglöw; Søren Berg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic rhinosinusitis; CRS; nasal obstruction; sleep; sleep apnoea.; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; Oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Background: Nasal obstruction is very common in the general population, but the role of nasal obstruction in sleep quality is not clear. Nasal obstruction is also prevalent in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and may contribute to poor adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Health-Related Quality of Life and Diagnostic Improvements in Rhinosinusitis

    Author : Pernilla Sahlstrand Johnson; allergi och livskvalitet Laryngoesofagologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rhinosinusitis; nasal polyps; health-related quality of life; absenteeism; Doppler ultrasound; acoustic streaming; attenuation;

    Abstract : Rhinosinusitis is defined as an inflammatory process involving the mucosa of the nose and one or more of the paranasal sinuses. The aims of the work presented in this thesis were to investigate the degree to which rhinosinusitis affects the health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and to determine whether the diagnosis of this condition can be improved using Doppler ultrasound.

  5. 5. Nasal epithelial cells : innate immunity and inflammation

    Author : Lotta Tengroth; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The surface epithelium that lines the nasal passages is often the first tissue in the airway to encounter inhaled pathogens. It collaborates closely with the innate immune system, a subsystem of the immune system that defends the host from infection by organisms, mainly by initiating a local inflammatory reaction. READ MORE
