There have been significant advances in the management of sinus and nasal diseases, from understanding the pathophysiology and diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis to the development of new techniques and technologies with the expansion of endoscopic sinus surgery to areas beyond the paranasal sinuses.
Diseases of the paranasal sinuses extends to adjacent areas such as the orbit and skull base, affecting the patient’s quality of life. Furthermore, chronic rhinosinusitis remains a heterogenous and complex disease with emerging research on the microbiome, innate immunity and the role of new therapies, such as immunotherapy.
Endoscopic sinus surgery has also improved outcomes for patient with chronic rhinosinusitis. However, controversy remains about the extent of sinus surgery and its benefits on the quality of life of patients. The expanded endonasal approach has also allowed the treatment of diseases of the skull base, orbit and brain.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to review current advancements and controversies in the treatment of patients with sinus and nasal diseases with a focus on chronic rhinosinusitis, its effects on patient’s quality of life and the expanded endoscopic surgical approaches to pathology beyond the paranasal sinuses.
