Chitogel following endoscopic sinus surgery promotes a healthy microbiome and reduces post ‐operative infections
ConclusionChitogel significantly improved both the nasoendoscopic appearance of the sinuses and sinus ostial patency at 12 weeks post-operative. Chitogel used following ESS helps restore an improved microbiome resulting in an increase in the relative abundance of commensalsCorynebacterium andCutibacterium (Propionibacterium). A significant decrease in post-operative infections was noted following use of Chitogel.This article is protected by copyright.

Open and endoscopic surgery improve survival for squamous and non ‐squamous cell nasopharyngeal carcinomas: an NCDB cohort study
ConclusionBoth endoscopic and open surgical approaches are associated with improved overall survival of patients with NPT. These findings offer important oncologic validity as endoscopic and robotic platforms to the nasopharynx become more widely adopted.This article is protected by copyright.

Applications of vibrational energy in the treatment of sinonasal disease: A scoping review
ConclusionsVibration technology used in patients with sinonasal pathology has been shown to improve pain, sinonasal symptoms and radiologic outcome measures in small studies. Given the heterogeneous study populations and outcomes, no conclusion could be reached regarding overall effectiveness of acoustic energy as a primary treatment. Further research is required to study specific treatment indications in larger patient populations to fully understand the potential clinical benefit and to determine optimal therapeutic characteristics of sound energy.This article is protected by copyright.

Unique volatile metabolite signature of sinonasal inverted papilloma detectable in plasma and nasal secretions
ConclusionThis study suggests that SNIP produces a unique, detectable volatile metabolite signature. With further investigation, this can have dramatic clinical implications for diagnosis and monitoring. Although most volatile metabolite studies have investigated solid-organ malignancy, this novel study addresses a benign sinonasal neoplasm by using nasal secretions and plasma as an analysis medium, representing the first such study.
