Nevada ENT and Reno Tahoe Sinus Center Collaborate with Harvard Medical School

Dr. Meier recently returned from Chicago where the paper “A Validated Model for the 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test Subdomain Structure in Chronic Rhinosinusitis” was presented at the American Rhinologic Society’s Annual Meeting.  This paper demonstrated that the 22 questions found in the SNOT-22 can be grouped into 4 subdomains (sleep, nasal, otologic/facial pain and emotional).  Data was provided from 400 patients from Nevada ENT / Reno Tahoe Sinus Center and 400 patients from Harvard / Mass Eye and Ear.  Dr. Meier and Dr. Killeen enjoyed collaborating without colleagues from Boston and look forward to future projects.
