Evaluation and management of adult chronic rhinosinusitis
Yarlagadda BB, Devaiah AK

Educational Needs Addressed Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a common disease affecting approximately 31 million adults in the United States. It accounts for billions of dollars in health care expenditures annually and loss of productivity in the workplace. Evolving definitions and diagnostic criteria are in place to expedite management of the disease. Expanding knowledge of the pathophysiology of CRS forms the basis of current treatment regimens. Patients who fail medical management with antibiotics and topical steroids may be amenable to surgical treatment. Primary care physicians will routinely face this disease and should be familiar with the most current guidelines in diagnosis and treatment. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Discuss the etiology and pathophysiology of CRS 2. Identify the current criteria for diagnosis of CRS 3. Describe the management algorithm for CRS, especially for those patients with initial treatment failures 4. Discuss the role of surgery in CRS
