Choosing a Surgical Navigation System that Fits Your ENT Practice

Surgical navigation systems play a critical role in the safety and efficacy of ENT surgeries. As navigation systems are increasingly integrated into operating rooms and office settings, it is important to consider several factors when choosing one that fits your practice.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery with Navigation: Preoperative & Intraoperative Applications of Advanced Navigation

Advanced navigation is a technique that uses patients' 3D CT scan images and tracked surgical instruments to help surgeons navigate the sinuses. This advanced tool provides surgeons with enhanced localization, visualization, and orientation, ensuring precision and safety during complex procedures.

Internal vs External Nasal Valve Collapse

Internal or external nasal valve collapse can impair breathing and quality of life. Understanding anatomy, function, symptoms, and risk factors is paramount in managing nasal valve collapse effectively.

Nasal Valve Repair: Surgery Techniques & Post-Operative Management

Nasal valve repair surgery restores airflow in patients with obstructions. The process involves evaluating nasal anatomy, selecting appropriate techniques, and using robust cartilage grafts. Learn more!

How to Perform Balloon Sinuplasty in the Office Setting

With appropriate planning and a few procedural modifications, balloon sinuplasty can successfully float from the OR to the office. Keep reading to learn more about how to perform balloon sinuplasty in the office setting

Balloon Sinuplasty: A Valuable Tool in the ENT Toolbox

Balloon sinuplasty offers a minimally invasive, in-office alternative to functional endoscopic sinus surgery in select cases. Join BackTable ENT to learn about the applications of this common procedure.

Allergic Fungal Rhinosinusitis Treatment: Clearing Out the “Peanut Butter”

Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is a form of chronic rhinosinusitis that can cause orbital/intracranial spread and distortion of sinonasal anatomy if untreated. Learn more about allergic fungal rhinosinusitis treatment, sinus rinses, and endoscopic sinus surgery.

Evaluating Allergic Fungal Rhinosinusitis (ARFS): Focus on Symptoms & Diagnostic Criteria

Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is a subset of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. Learn more about AFRS symptoms and diagnostic criteria.

Odontogenic Sinusitis Symptoms & Diagnosis

Odontogenic sinusitis is a maxillary sinus disease of dental origin. It presents with unilateral sinusitis symptoms and foul odor. Learn more about the symptoms and diagnosis of odontogenic sinusitis.

Odontogenic Sinusitis Treatment

Odontogenic sinusitis is the result of dental infection spreading to the maxillary sinus. Given the interdisciplinary nature of this disease, a combination of medical, surgical, and dental treatment strategies enable cure in 95% of affected patients.

Diagnosing Loss of Smell: Medical History, Testing & Imaging

Loss of smell can arise from many different etiologies, including post-viral, traumatic, and vascular. Clinicians who treat patients with smell loss shouldn’t miss this high-yield article, which reviews causes and workup of smell loss.

Olfactory retraining is an underutilized tool for patients with loss of smell.

When considering treatment for loss of smell, it can be difficult to identify evidence-based interventions that provide the best chance of helping patients regain olfactory function. Join BackTable ENT and leading expert in olfactory disorders, Dr. Zara Patel, to review current and emerging therapies for loss of smell, including smell retraining therapy, nutritional supplements, and platelet-rich plasma therapy.

Causes for olfactory dysfunction include viral infection, trauma, and toxic medications.

Olfactory dysfunction encompasses disturbances in smell, ranging from smell distortion to anosmia (total loss of smell). Learn what olfactory dysfunction is, testing, symptoms, and causes in this article.

An otolaryngologist evaluating options for patients with chronic rhinitis.

Chronic rhinitis is defined as congestion and stuffiness that lasts for more than three months. Learn more about chronic rhinitis treatment and how to evaluate and manage this common condition.

A women undergoing in-office sinus surgery

In-office sinus surgery is becoming more popular amongst ENTs. Learn more about nasal obstruction surgeries that can be performed in office, the unique patient selection process for in office sinus surgery, and the equipment requirements for performing sinus surgery in a new clinic.

In-office Rhinologic Procedure

Dr. Scott Fortune describes how to successfully incorporate Office-Based Rhinology and associated procedures into your Otolaryngology practice.

Rhinologic Injection Prepared with Lidocaine and Epinephrine

Office-based Rhinologic procedures can be uncomfortable and painful for patients. It is important to have a safe and effective anesthetic protocol in place to minimize patient discomfort.
