To study sinonasal papilloma patients in terms of clinical characteristics, treatment, outcome, and complications.
A retrospective descriptive study was done. Sinonasalpapilloma data were gathered between 1999 and 2009. There were 63 available patients from the 82 cases.
There were nine cases of nasal papilloma (14.3%) and 54 of inverted papilloma (85.7%). The mean age of the inverted papilloma group was higher than the nasal papilloma group (54 +/- 12.97 years vs. 42.4 +/- 24.8 years). The most common symptom was unilateral nasal obstruction. There were three cases of synchronous malignancy in the inverted papilloma and two metachronous (9.3%). Thirty-nine patients (72%) could be followed-up for more than three months. Recurrence was more common in the inverted papilloma group than nasal papilloma (37% vs. 11.1%). The 50% recurrent time of the endoscopic group was 51 weeks and the external group was 14 weeks. The recurrence of the external approach group was 1.59 times the endoscopic group. Ten surgical complications were found in eight inverted papilloma patients (16%) and included three in the endoscopic and five in the external group. Most of them were minor They were hypoesthesia and epiphora.
Sinonasal inverted papilloma was common, able to recur and associated with malignancy. Though this was a limited retrospective study, it showed lower recurrence on the endoscopic approach. The life-long follow-up is needed in all cases.

    ABSTRACT: Inverted papillomas (IPs), although histologically benign, are aggressive lesions that may recur after an excision. The objective of this study was to compare the surgical treatment options for IPs with an emphasis on the experience of our institution with midfacial degloving (MFD) and medial maxillectomy. A retrospective review of the charts of patients with IP treated by MFD and medial maxillectomy was performed. An analysis of the recurrence rates of IPs in the literature for endoscopic surgery and lateral rhinotomy was also performed. Ninety-eight medial maxillectomy procedures via MFD were performed for IPs with a minimum of 2 years' follow-up (median = 5.1 years). Two patients were found to have recurrences (2.1%). The literature review revealed an average recurrence rate of 15.7% for lateral rhinotomy as compared with that of 19.6% for endoscopic surgery. Midfacial degloving balances acceptable cosmetic results with low recurrence rates. It allows for adequate exposure and resection without the scar of a lateral rhinotomy incision.

    ABSTRACT: A series of 30 patients with inverted papillomas of the nose and/or the paranasal sinuses is presented. The inverted papilloma is a rare tumor with an overall incidence varying from 0.5% to 4% of all primary nasal tumors. The incidence of inverted papilloma is much more common in the fifth to seventh decades. An association between inverted papilloma and carcinoma is well established. In the large series of patients, the incidence of malignancy associated with inverted papilloma ranges from 1% to 13%, and in our series 10%. Treatment of inverted papilloma is always surgical. The incidence of recurrence is directly related to the method of surgical treatment. Among our 20 patients who were treated by limited surgery, there was recurrence in 14 cases (70%). By contrast, medial maxillectomy and ethmoidectomy via lateral rhinotomy reduced the recurrence rate dramatically. In our opinion this approach is the surgery of choice in the treatment of inverted papilloma.

    ABSTRACT: Inverted papillomas of the nose and paranasal sinuses are uncommon neoplasms, characterized by their tendency to recur and by their association with malignancy. Over the past 25 years, the standard surgical treatment of inverted papillomas has involved extranasal, en bloc resections because of high recurrence rates with less extensive surgery. The past decade has witnessed an increasing number of reports documenting the successful treatment of inverted papilloma with endoscopic approaches. This investigation examines the role of endoscopic procedures in treating inverted papilloma. The present article presents a thorough review of the literature relating to the history, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of inverted papillomas of the nose and paranasal sinuses. It also provides a systematic review of the pertinent medical literature with pooled statistical analysis of data from 33 studies involving 1,426 patients. The findings suggest that many cases of inverted papilloma can be treated successfully with low recurrence rates and less morbidity through endoscopic surgery, with results comparable to extranasal procedures. Less aggressive approaches to the sinuses and nonendoscopic intranasal procedures, such as the Caldwell-Luc, have unacceptable rates of recurrence and should be abandoned. A staging system for inverted papilloma and a logical approach to treatment are presented.
