Abstract

VASCO, Camila Taniguti Cordeiro; MORAIS, Heloisa Carvalho de  and  AVELINO, Melissa Ameloti Gomes. SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE ON SURGICAL TREATMENT OF CHRONIC RHINOSINUSITIS IN CHILDREN: WHAT IS THE BEST APPROACH?. Rev. paul. pediatr. [online]. 2020, vol.38, e2018068.  Epub Jan 13, 2020. ISSN 1984-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1984-0462/2020/38/2018068.

Objective:

To carry out a systematic literature review on the surgical treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis in the pediatric population.

Data sources:

A bibliographic review methodology was used, based on data from National Library of Medicine (Medline), PubMed, Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS) and Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), of the indexed works from 2006 to 2016, including the pediatric population from zero to 13 years of age. The search keywords according to Medical Subject Heading (MESH) and Health Sciences Descriptors (DeCS) were: child, surgery, sinusitis and chronic disease. A total of 318 articles were collected, five of which met the inclusion criteria and were used as a basis for this review. All articles were prospective cohort studies, level of evidence 2B, according to the criterion used by evidence-based medicine.

Data synthesis:

The literature agreed that the next step for the cases refractory to drug treatment in chronic rhinosinusitis in childhood would be surgery. Adenoidectomy would be the initial method, for the safety of the procedure and improvement in about 50% of the cases, although more significant results were found in patients who associated this procedure with facial sinus surgery.

Conclusions:

Surgical treatment should be indicated for chronic rhinosinusitis in childhood after treatment failure. The results pointed out that adenoidectomy, when associated with some type of approach to the facial sinus, present better results.

Keywords : Child; Surgery; Sinusitis; Chronic disease.
