The continuing debate and controversy about prescribing antibiotics for acute bacterial rhinosinusitis, and the resistance to change in practice, motivate a search for alternative interventions.
About 50% of acute bacterial rhinosinusitis will resolve without antibiotic therapy Additionally because the infection must be inferred from symptoms and there is usually uncertainty about the causative organism, antibiotic treatment can be inappropriate and/or ineffective.
Sinusitis resolves more often and more quickly when patients are treated with antibiotics, but two-thirds of patients would recover anyway without the drugs, according to the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research's evidence report on acute bacterial rhinosinusitis.
(12) A recent meta-analysis of prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trials in acute bacterial rhinosinusitis suggests that Staphylococcus aureus is a major pathogen, accounting for 10% of cases.
TABLE 1 Variables associated with treatment failure in ABS Risk factors for resistant pathogens * Recent antibiotic use * Organ transplantation, HIV infection, asplenia, malignancies, and sickle cell disease in patients who receive penicillin prophylaxis * Smoking Reduced tolerance for treatment failure * More severe symptoms (more discomfort) ABS, acute bacterial rhinosinusitis; HIV, human immunodeficiency virus.
In patients with acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (ABS) and acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (ABECB) (TABLE 1 ), these 3 pathogens account for approximately 80% of cases, although various other gram-positive and gram-negative species can play an important role.
