Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease and Nasal Polyps

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.071
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
This study estimated the prevalence of patients with AERD in the total group of patients with nasal polyps, as well as a statistically significant difference between these two groups regarding: the size of nasal polyps before and after the administration of corticosteroid therapy; the number of repetitions of required systemic corticosteroid therapy for one year, as well as decisions about patients’ need for surgical treatment after corticosteroid therapy for one year.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study estimated the prevalence of patients with aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) in the total group of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CHRwNP), as well as a statistically significant difference between these two groups.

Material and method: By analyzing 150 patients with diagnoses of CHRwNP, a subgroup of patients with intolerance to aspirin and other NSAIDs with asthma was isolated.

Mean Platelet Volume in Nasal Polyps

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.011
Pages: 
515–8
Synopsis: 
Mean platelet volume (MPV), a surrogate marker of platelet function, was found to be associated with inflammatory diseases. Results showed that MPV was significantly lower in patients with nasal polyps compared to control subjects.
