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.

Pages: 
318–23
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.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Complicated sinusitis is rare. It might not be identified early and might expose the patient to an unfavourable outcome. There is a paucity of data regarding this condition in the Caribbean. This study was undertaken to describe the clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients admitted with this condition.

Adult Epistaxis, Epidemiology and Management at the University Hospital of The West Indies

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.007
Pages: 
100–04
Synopsis: 
Epistaxis is stated as one of the most common otolaryngology emergencies. Minor epistaxis originates from the anterior septum and is secondary to nose picking in children and dessication of the mucosa in adults from dry air. Major epistaxis lacks a precise definition but is characterised as being difficult for patients to control which results in a visit to the emergency department. There is a high prevalence of elevated blood pressure readings and hypertension among our patients with epistaxis. Most cases of epistaxis can be managed successfully with non-surgical treatment.
