- Abstract: To investigate aeroallergen spectrum and allergy positive rates of patients with child allergic rhinitis and analyze its related factors. Skin prick test was carried out in 562 cases with child allergic rhinitis using 13 inhaled allergens, and detailed history was collected in all cases. Four hundred and fifty-seven (81.3%) of 562 cases showed positive reaction to at least one allergen out of 13 allergens. The most common allergens found in patients was Dermatophagoides farinae and... Show More
- Abstract: To explore the therapeutic effects of endoscopic sinus surgery on symptoms and quality of life of patients with chronic rhino-sinusitis (CRS). A survey of symptoms and quality of life was conducted using Sino-nasal Outcome Test-20 (SNOT-20) questionnaire with 76 patients before and after endoscopic sinus surgery. The overall effect of endoscopic sinus surgery on CRS was subjectively self-evaluated by patient. After 6 months following-up, the total SNOT-20 score of patients was significantly... Show More
- Abstract: Anticholinergic drugs or vidian neurectomy can alleviate the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. To show that inhibition of the cholinergic nerve influences the balance of T-helper type 1 and 2 cells in allergic rhinitis mice. Twenty-four mice were randomly allocated to 1 of 4 groups: control, model, model with ipratropium bromide treatment, and model with 6-hydroxydopamine treatment. Allergic model-treated mice were sensitized with ovalbumin. Evaluation of allergic symptoms was recorded... Show More
- Abstract: To modify the endoscopic frontal sinus surgery and improve the therapeutic effect of recurrent chronic frontal sinusitis (RCFS). Eighty-five patients with RCFS were divided into two groups. Endoscopic frontal sinus surgery through an approach of Frontomaxillary Process-Agger Nasi, a modified Draf IIb procedure, was carried out in 51 patients (Group A), and conservative medication was applied in 34 patients as control (Group B). The therapeutic effect was prospectively evaluated with... Show More
- Abstract: Objective: To analyze the risk factors for allergic rhinitis and provide the scientific basis for disease control and intervention through investigation of the elementary and middle school students with allergic rhinitis in Changsha. Methods: From January to April 2012, we randomly enrolled the elementary and middle school students aged at 10-17 years old in Changsha. We explored the risk factors for allergic rhinitis by using stratified and cluster sampling survey, questionnaire... Show More
- Abstract: A conchal non-pneumatized sphenoid sinus was previously considered to be a contraindication to the endoscopic transsphenoidal route to the sella due to its small sellar floor and poor anatomical landmarks, such as the optic nerve canal, opticocarotid recess and internal carotid arteries canal. The present study aimed to investigate the methodology and characteristics of the endoscopic transsphenoidal resection of sellar tumors with a conchal sphenoid sinus. Two patients with sellar tumor... Show More

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a serious systemic allergic disease, which together with comorbid asthma causes major illness and disability worldwide. Recent epidemiological studies have revealed wide variations in the increasing prevalence of AR and allergies globally, including in China. Despite a markedly higher population than western countries, and a landmass close to Europe in area, little epidemiological data is available on AR in China. Thus, the present study reviewed the prevalence, comorbid allergic diseases, trends and pattern of sensitizing allergens in adults and children suffering from AR in China. Available data indicated that despite variations in the prevalence of AR in different regions of the country, the prevalence of AR has increased in both adults and children over the last 2 decades. Similarly, there has been an increase in a "western"-type lifestyle, industrialization and air pollution over this period, which may have contributed to the increased prevalence of AR observed in China.
- Similarly, another study of 1-3-year-old children with AR in Beijing reported that the most common inhaled sensitizing aeroallergens in these children were mixed fungal (50.0%), followed by dust mite (21.0%) and mugwort (12.5%).65 However, 2 studies conducted respectively in Changsha66 and Wuhan,38 cities in central China, reported that the most common sensitizing allergens in children with AR were house dust mites, thus presenting an allergen spectrum in accordance with that of adults. Similarly, a study by Han and colleagues36 in 9-10-year-old AR children in Shihezi, Xinjiang province in Northwest China, reported mugwort and house dust mite allergens to be the most common sensitizing agents for AR.
