This podcast highlights original research published in the
October official journal of the American Academy of
Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) Foundation.
The objectives were to identify anatomic
contributions to chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) necessitating
revision endoscopic sinus surgery (RESS), and to create a clinical
acronym to guide imaging review prior to RESS that addresses
pertinent sites of disease and potential sites of surgical
In conclusion, the REVISIONS acronym was
developed as a tool to distill the unique anatomic contributions of
primary endoscopic sinus surgery failure into a format that can be
easily incorporated in preoperative radiologic review and surgical
planning to optimize outcomes and minimize complications.
