Acute Complicated Sinusitis: Ten Years Experience from the University Hospital of the West Indies

Synopsis: 
Acute sinusitis has been associated with complications and has been seen most frequently in the adolescent male population. The most common complication is orbital. Surgical techniques have evolved from open sinus approaches to endoscopic approaches. Surgical treatment is indicated for those patients who fail medical management and should consist of an endoscopic approach which may be combined with open approaches if indicated.

A Retrospective Analysis of Patients Presenting with Head and Neck Paragangliomas at Two Tertiary Referral Centres in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.024
Pages: 
25-30
Synopsis: 
Paragangliomas are rare, benign vascular tumours that can present in the head and neck region with a wide clinical spectrum. The clinical presentation and management approaches are examined from a Jamaican perspective.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Paragangliomas are slow-growing tumours that present with varied clinical spectra. Early recognition is paramount in achieving reduced morbidity and mortality. There is a paucity of data regarding head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGs) in the Caribbean literature. This study aimed to reflect the clinical experience in the management of HNPGs at two Jamaican tertiary referral centres: the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) and the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
