This meta-analysis has a number of limitations.

Kutluhan and colleagues [ ] prospectively evaluated the duration of antimicrobial therapy and its effect on the nasal smears obtained from 4 patient groups with acute maxillary sinusitis who received antibiotics for 7, 14, 21, or 28 days. However, even in children without respiratory symptoms, cultures of the middle meatus often show S.

Conversely, such radiographs are frequently abnormal in healthy children [ 32—34 ] and in children undergoing CT for a nonrespiratory complaint [ 35 ]. The final task is to formulate recommendations based on the balance of desirable vs undesirable consequences for the intervention, and make a value judgment regarding the strength of the recommendation.

The role of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in patients with sinusitis with complications. Use of pharmacodynamic endpoints for the evaluation of levofloxacin for the treatment of acute maxillary sinusitis. Associated antimicrobial resistance in Escherichia coliPseudomonas aeruginosaStaphylococcus aureusStreptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus pyogenes. Such patients require close observation; antimicrobial therapy should be initiated promptly after 3 days if there is still no improvement.

This recommendation places a relatively high value on limiting the development of antibiotic resistance and resource use.


The panel consisted of internists and pediatricians as well as infectious epoz and emergency physicians and an otolaryngologic specialist. The quality of evidence reflects the extent to which the confidence in estimates of the effects is adequate to support a particular recommendation.

Because this was the first guideline to use the GRADE system, preparation of the evidence profile was assisted by a GRADE representative on the panel who provided expert advice on methodological issues throughout the guideline development. A comparison of four different methods.

The quality of evidence was evaluated after the literature review. A total of 16 trials involving study patients reported in the English literature during — were included for analysis. Comparative safety profile of levofloxacin in children with wspaol focus on espaoo specific musculoskeletal disorders.

We identified up-to-date valid systematic reviews from the MEDLINE database and the Cochrane Library, and also, in selected cases, reference lists of the most recent narrative reviews or studies on the topic.

Adjunct effect of loratadine in the treatment of acute sinusitis in patients with allergic rhinitis. Specialist-based treatment reduces the severity of allergic rhinitis.

Use of symptoms, signs, and blood tests to diagnose acute sinus infections in primary care: J Investig Allergol Clin Immunol. Safety profile of the respiratory fluoroquinolone moxifloxacin: Standard-dose amoxicillin-clavulanate is recommended as first-line therapy for ABRS in both children and adults.

Fluoroquinolones compared with beta-lactam antibiotics for the treatment of acute bacterial sinusitis: It is probable that this apparent difference in response rates between children and adults is due to more stringent inclusion criteria for ABRS in the pediatric studies; alternatively, children with ABRS may respond better to antibiotics than adults.

A trial of high-dose, short-course levofloxacin for the treatment of acute bacterial sinusitis. Empirical treatment of influenza-associated pneumonia in primary care: Apart from PNS S.


Only maxillary toothache OR, 2. Calculated by inverting the difference from proportions of success rates between treatment groups [ 18 ]. Staphylococcus aureus is a major pathogen in acute bacterial rhinosinusitis: Management of acute maxillary sinusitis in Finnish primary care. Of the 3 comparative trials, only the Scandinavian study enrolled sufficient patients [ ]. Only approximately 1 of 95 hospital admissions in the United States is due to sinusitis-associated brain abscess [ ].

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in acute rhinosinusitis. Simultaneous assay for four bacterial species including Alloiococcus otitidis using multiplex-PCR in children with culture negative acute otitis media. The former is active against most strains of H. The significance of these posttreatment cultures is difficult to interpret since they do not always correlate with the clinical response. Which antimicrobial regimens are recommended for the empiric treatment of ABRS in children and adults with a history of penicillin allergy?

The recommendation against the use of decongestants or antihistamines as adjunctive therapy in ABRS places a relatively high value on avoiding adverse effects from these agents and a relatively low value on the incremental improvement of symptoms.

At present, respiratory fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who have failed to respond to first-line agents, those with a history of penicillin allergy, and as second-line therapy for patients at risk for PNS S.

Do delayed prescriptions reduce antibiotic use in respiratory tract infections? When no systematic review was available, we evaluated the original studies to inform judgments about the quality of the underlying evidence from a crude examination of these studies.
