Otolaryngologists, Facial Plastic Surgeons, and other reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons deal with patients who are having rhinoplasty procedures with concomitant rhinology and allergy medical conditions. Likewise, they deal with patients with these medical conditions who have already undergone rhinoplasty surgery. This resource presents clinical information for the practitioner working with these patients that includes “How to approach the rhinoplasty patient with allergy and sinus issues,” a decision algorithm for “Yes or No: can this patient have rhinoplasty surgery?”, and a summary of how the allergy and sinus problems will affect the outcome of rhinoplasty. Topics include: Chronic rhinosinusitis; Allergic rhinitis; Non-allergic rhinitis; Allergic skin disease; Concurrent Rhinoplasty and Endoscopic Sinus Surgery - A review of the pros and cons and a template for success; Pharmacotherapy of rhinitis and rhinosinusitis; The role of alternative medicine in rhinology; Sinonasal problems and reflux; Bacteriology and antibiotic resistance in chronic rhinosinusitis; Smell and taste disorders
