  • Treatment Patterns, Complications, and Health Care Utilization Among
           Endometriosis Patients Undergoing a Laparoscopy or a Hysterectomy: A
           Retrospective Claims Analysis
    • Authors: Eric S. Surrey; Ahmed M. Soliman; Hongbo Yang; Ella Xiaoyan Du; Bowdoin Su
      Abstract: Introduction Hysterectomy and laparoscopy are common surgical procedures used for the treatment of endometriosis. This study compares outcomes for women who received either procedure within the first year post initial surgery. Methods The study used data from the Truven Health MarketScan claims databases from 2004 to 2013 to identify women aged 18–49 years who received an endometriosis-related laparoscopy or hysterectomy. Patients were excluded if they did not have continuous insurance coverage from 1 year before through 1 year after their endometriosis-related procedure, if they were diagnosed with uterine fibroids prior to or on the date of surgery (i.e., index date), or if they had a hysterectomy prior to the index date. The descriptive analyses examined differences between patients with an endometriosis-related laparoscopy or hysterectomy in regard to medications prescribed, complications, and hospitalizations during the immediate year post procedure. Results The final sample consisted of 24,915 women who underwent a hysterectomy and 37,308 who underwent a laparoscopy. Results revealed significant differences between the cohorts, with women who received a laparoscopy more likely to be prescribed a GnRH agonist, progestin, danazol, or an opioid analgesic in the immediate year post procedure compared to women who underwent a hysterectomy. In contrast, women who underwent a hysterectomy generally had higher complication rates. Index hospitalization rates and length of stay (LOS) were higher for women who had a hysterectomy, while post-index hospitalization rates and LOS were higher for women who had a laparoscopy. For both cohorts, post-procedure complications were associated with significantly higher hospitalization rates and longer LOS. Conclusion This study indicated significantly different 1-year post-surgical outcomes for patients who underwent an endometriosis-related hysterectomy relative to a laparoscopy. Furthermore, the endometriosis patients in this analysis had a considerable risk of surgical complications, subsequent surgeries, and hospital admissions, both during and after their initial therapeutic laparoscopy or hysterectomy.

  • Treatment Persistence and Healthcare Costs Among Patients with Rheumatoid
           Arthritis Changing Biologics in the USA
    • Authors: Benjamin Chastek; Chieh-I Chen; Clare Proudfoot; Shraddha Shinde; Andreas Kuznik; Wenhui Wei
      Abstract: Introduction After a patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) fails tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) treatment, clinical guidelines support either cycling to another TNFi or switching to a different mechanism of action (MOA), but payers often require TNFi cycling before they reimburse switching MOA. This study examined treatment persistence, cost, and cost per persistent patient among MOA switchers versus TNFi cyclers. Methods This study of Commercial and Medicare Advantage claims data from the Optum Research Database included patients with RA and at least one claim for a TNFi (adalimumab, certolizumab pegol, etanercept, golimumab, or infliximab) between January 2012 and September 2015 who changed to another TNFi or a different MOA therapy (abatacept, tocilizumab, or tofacitinib) within 1 year. The index date was the date of the change in therapy. Treatment persistence was defined as no subsequent switch or 60-day gap in therapy for 1 year post-index. RA-related costs included plan-paid and patient-paid amounts for inpatient, outpatient, and pharmacy claims. Medication costs included index and post-index costs of TNFi and different MOA therapies. Results There were 581 (38.3%) MOA switchers and 935 (61.7%) TNFi cyclers. The treatment persistence rate was significantly higher for MOA switchers versus TNFi cyclers (47.7% versus 40.2%, P = 0.004). Mean 1-year healthcare costs were significantly lower among MOA switchers versus TNFi cyclers for total RA-related costs ($37,804 versus $42,116; P < 0.001) and medication costs ($29,001 versus $34,917; P < 0.001). When costs were divided by treatment persistence, costs per persistent patient were lower among MOA switchers versus TNFi cyclers: $25,436 lower total RA-related cost and $25,999 lower medication costs. Conclusion MOA switching is associated with higher treatment persistence and lower healthcare costs than TNFi cycling. Reimbursement policies that require patients to cycle TNFi before switching MOA may result in suboptimal outcomes for both patients and payers. Funding Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

  • Assessing the Role of Reversible Contraceptives in the Health Care of
           Women as it Pertains to Cancer Prevention
    • Authors: Carolyn M. Ross; Lee P. Shulman
      Abstract: Abstract The use of effective and reversible contraception is characterized by many non-contraceptive benefits distinct from its ability to prevent pregnancy. Notably, the use of hormonal and non-hormonal birth control methods is known to impact the risk for developing certain female genital cancers as well as breast and colon cancers. We present here the current understanding of the role of effective and reversible contraceptives in the prevention and development of female genital cancers along with breast and colon cancers. Despite ongoing but unsubstantiated concerns regarding the use of hormonal and intrauterine contraceptives for a variety of clinical outcomes including cancer, contraceptive use in high- and low-risk reproductive-aged women remains an important part of cancer risk reduction for many malignancies.

  • Sepsis: A Review of Advances in Management
    • Authors: Jordi Rello; Francisco Valenzuela-Sánchez; Maria Ruiz-Rodriguez; Silvia Moyano
      Abstract: Abstract Infections represent a common health problem in people of all ages. Usually, the response given to them is appropriate and so little treatment is needed. Sometimes, however, the response to the infection is inadequate and may lead to organ dysfunction; this is the condition known as sepsis. Sepsis can be caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses and at present there is no specific treatment; its management basically focuses on containing the infection through source control and antibiotics plus organ function support. This article reviews key elements of sepsis management, focusing on diagnosis, biomarkers and therapy. The main recent advance in therapy is the strategy of personalized medicine, based on a precise approach using biomarkers to identify specific individuals who are likely to benefit from more personalized attention.

  • Effects of Ketoconazole on the Pharmacokinetics of Mifepristone, a
           Competitive Glucocorticoid Receptor Antagonist, in Healthy Men
    • Authors: Dat Nguyen; Sarah Mizne
      Abstract: Introduction Mifepristone, a competitive glucocorticoid receptor antagonist approved for Cushing syndrome, and ketoconazole, an antifungal and steroidogenesis inhibitor, are both inhibitors of and substrates for cytochrome P450 (CYP3A4). This study evaluated the pharmacokinetic effects of concomitant ketoconazole, a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor, on mifepristone. Methods In an open-label, two-period, single-center study, healthy adult men received mifepristone 600 mg orally daily for 12 days (period 1) followed by mifepristone 600 mg daily plus ketoconazole 200 mg orally twice daily for 5 days (period 2). Serial pharmacokinetic blood samples were collected predose and over 24 h postdose on days 12 (period 1) and 17 (period 2). A cross-study comparison (using data on file) further examined whether systemic exposure to mifepristone plus ketoconazole exceeded the exposure following mifepristone 1200 mg orally administered for 7 days. Results Sixteen subjects were enrolled and 14 completed the study. Concomitant administration with ketoconazole increased the systemic exposure to mifepristone, based on geometric least squares mean ratios, by 28% for C max and 38% for AUC0–24. This increase was 85% and 87% of the exposure observed following mifepristone’s highest label dose of 1200 mg/day for C max and AUC0–24, respectively. Adverse events (AEs) were reported in 56.3% (9/16) of subjects during administration of mifepristone alone and in 57.1% (8/14) during combination with ketoconazole. No serious AEs were reported. Conclusion Systemic exposure to mifepristone increased following multiple doses of mifepristone 600 mg daily plus ketoconazole 200 mg twice daily. Little to no increase in AEs occurred. Dose adjustment of mifepristone may be needed when given with ketoconazole. Funding Corcept Therapeutics.

  • Pharmacotherapy Choice Is Associated with 2-Year Mortality for Patients
           with Heart Failure and Reduced Ejection Fraction
    • Authors: Nancy M. Albert; Dana A. Drzayich Antol; Richard W. DeClue; Adrianne Waldman Casebeer; Yong Li; Stephen Stemkowski; Chun-Lan Chang
      Abstract: Introduction Factors associated with mortality for patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) are known; however, the association between initial pharmacotherapy (IPT) and mortality is unclear in real-world settings. Methods Using a retrospective design and claims database, 14,359 Medicare patients with HFrEF from August 2010 to July 2015 were identified. Index date was first HF claim. IPT was mono- or combo-angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI), angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), beta-blocker (BB), hydralazine–nitrate (HN), and aldosterone antagonist (AA) within 1 year post-index. A multivariable time-dependent Cox model estimated associations between IPT and 2-year all-cause mortality. Results Patients’ median age was 76 (70–82) years; 45.1% were female. Within 1 month post-index, 61.4% had IPT, 6.1% started after the first month, and 32.4% had no IPT in the first year. Of IPTs, 47.5% were mono-vasodilators (ACEI, ARB or HN), 23.3% mono-vasodilator + BB, 16.9% mono-BB, and 3.5% triple therapy [(ACEI or ARB) + BB + (HN or AA)]. Two-year mortality rate was 27.9%. Compared to mono-vasodilator therapy, patients initiating triple therapy had 29.3% lower risk of 2-year mortality; those on mono-BB or no IPT had higher mortality risk. Conclusion IPT was associated with decreased 2-year mortality risk. Timely consideration of triple IPT therapies may be warranted once HFrEF diagnosis is confirmed.

  • Challenges Associated with Estimating Utility in Wet Age-Related Macular
           Degeneration: A Novel Regression Analysis to Capture the Bilateral Nature
           of the Disease
    • Authors: Robert Hodgson; Timothy Reason; David Trueman; Rose Wickstead; Jeanette Kusel; Adam Jasilek; Lindsay Claxton; Matthew Taylor; Ruth Pulikottil-Jacob
      Abstract: Introduction The estimation of utility values for the economic evaluation of therapies for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a particular challenge. Previous economic models in wet AMD have been criticized for failing to capture the bilateral nature of wet AMD by modelling visual acuity (VA) and utility values associated with the better-seeing eye only. Methods Here we present a de novo regression analysis using generalized estimating equations (GEE) applied to a previous dataset of time trade-off (TTO)-derived utility values from a sample of the UK population that wore contact lenses to simulate visual deterioration in wet AMD. This analysis allows utility values to be estimated as a function of VA in both the better-seeing eye (BSE) and worse-seeing eye (WSE). Results VAs in both the BSE and WSE were found to be statistically significant (p < 0.05) when regressed separately. When included without an interaction term, only the coefficient for VA in the BSE was significant (p = 0.04), but when an interaction term between VA in the BSE and WSE was included, only the constant term (mean TTO utility value) was significant, potentially a result of the collinearity between the VA of the two eyes. The lack of both formal model fit statistics from the GEE approach and theoretical knowledge to support the superiority of one model over another make it difficult to select the best model. Conclusion Limitations of this analysis arise from the potential influence of collinearity between the VA of both eyes, and the use of contact lenses to reflect VA states to obtain the original dataset. Whilst further research is required to elicit more accurate utility values for wet AMD, this novel regression analysis provides a possible source of utility values to allow future economic models to capture the quality of life impact of changes in VA in both eyes.

  • Mechanical Ventilation During Resuscitation: How Manual Chest Compressions
           Affect a Ventilator’s Function
    • Authors: Tillmann Speer; Wolfgang Dersch; Björn Kleine; Christian Neuhaus; Clemens Kill
      Abstract: Introduction Guidelines for resuscitation recommend positive-pressure ventilation with a fixed ventilation rate as provided by an automated transport ventilator during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with a secured airway. We investigated the influence of manual chest compressions (CC) on the accuracy of ventilator presets and the quality of CC with intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV), bilevel ventilation (BiLevel), and the novel ventilation mode chest compression synchronized ventilation (CCSV) in a simulation model. Methods Ninety paramedics performed continuous CC for 2 min on a modified advanced life support mannequin with a realistic lung model. IPPV, BiLevel, and CCSV were applied in a randomized order. CCSV is a novel type of pressure-controlled ventilation with short insufflations synchronized with CC, which are stopped before decompression begins. The ventilator presets (tolerance range) were IPPV Vt = 450 (400–500) ml, PEEP = 0 hPa, f = 10/min; BiLevel Pinsp = 19 (17.1–20.9) hPa, PEEP = 5 hPa, f = 10/min; CCSV Pinsp = 60 (54–66) hPa, PEEP = 0 hPa, Tinsp = 205 ms, f = CC rate. Preset values were compared with the measured results. Values were defined as correct within a tolerance range. Quality of CC was evaluated using ERC guidelines (depth >50 mm, CC rate 100–120/min). Results Median (25th/75th percentiles) IPPV V t = 399 (386/411) ml, BiLevel Pinsp = 22.0 (19.7/25.6) hPa, and CCSV Pinsp = 55.2 (52.6/56.7) hPa. Relative frequency of delivering correct ventilation parameters according to ventilation mode: IPPV = 40 (0/100)% vs. BiLevel = 20 (0/100)%, p = 0.37 and vs. CCSV = 71 (50/83)%, p < 0.02. Pinsp was too high in BiLevel = 80 (0/100)% vs. CCSV = 0(0/0)%, p < 0.001. CC depth: IPPV 56 (48/63) mm, BiLevel 57 (48/63) mm, CCSV 60 (52/67) mm; CC rate: IPPV 117 (105/124)/min, BiLevel 116 (107/123)/min, CCSV 117 (107/125)/min. Conclusion When compared to IPPV and BiLevel, CCSV works best with preset values, without exceeding the upper pressure preset during simulated CPR. Quality of CC is not negatively affected by any of the ventilation patterns. Funding Parts of this study were supported by Weinmann Emergency Medical Technology GmbH + Co.KG.

  • Rituximab in B-Cell Hematologic Malignancies: A Review of 20 Years of
           Clinical Experience
    • Authors: Gilles Salles; Martin Barrett; Robin Foà; Joerg Maurer; Susan O’Brien; Nancy Valente; Michael Wenger; David G. Maloney
      Abstract: Rituximab is a human/murine, chimeric anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody with established efficacy, and a favorable and well-defined safety profile in patients with various CD20-expressing lymphoid malignancies, including indolent and aggressive forms of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Since its first approval 20 years ago, intravenously administered rituximab has revolutionized the treatment of B-cell malignancies and has become a standard component of care for follicular lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and mantle cell lymphoma. For all of these diseases, clinical trials have demonstrated that rituximab not only prolongs the time to disease progression but also extends overall survival. Efficacy benefits have also been shown in patients with marginal zone lymphoma and in more aggressive diseases such as Burkitt lymphoma. Although the proven clinical efficacy and success of rituximab has led to the development of other anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies in recent years (e.g., obinutuzumab, ofatumumab, veltuzumab, and ocrelizumab), rituximab is likely to maintain a position within the therapeutic armamentarium because it is well established with a long history of successful clinical use. Furthermore, a subcutaneous formulation of the drug has been approved both in the EU and in the USA for the treatment of B-cell malignancies. Using the wealth of data published on rituximab during the last two decades, we review the preclinical development of rituximab and the clinical experience gained in the treatment of hematologic B-cell malignancies, with a focus on the well-established intravenous route of administration.

  • Subcutaneous Rituximab for the Treatment of B-Cell Hematologic
           Malignancies: A Review of the Scientific Rationale and Clinical
    • Authors: Andrew Davies; Claude Berge; Axel Boehnke; Anjum Dadabhoy; Pieternella Lugtenburg; Simon Rule; Mathias Rummel; Christine McIntyre; Rodney Smith; Xavier Badoux
      Abstract: Rituximab (MabThera®/Rituxan®), a chimeric murine/human monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to the transmembrane antigen CD20, was the first therapeutic antibody to enter clinical practice for the treatment of cancer. As monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapy, rituximab has been shown to prolong progression-free survival and, in some indications overall survival, in patients with various B-cell malignancies, while having a well-established and manageable safety profile and a wide therapeutic window. As a result, rituximab is considered to have revolutionized treatment practices for patients with B-cell malignancies. A subcutaneous (SC) formulation of rituximab has been developed, comprising the same monoclonal antibody as the originally marketed formulation [rituximab concentrate for solution for intravenous (IV) infusion], and has undergone a detailed, sequential clinical development program. This program demonstrated that, at fixed doses, rituximab SC achieves non-inferior serum trough concentrations in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, with comparable efficacy and safety relative to the IV formulation. The added benefit of rituximab SC was demonstrated in dedicated studies showing that rituximab SC allows for simplified and shortened drug preparation and administration times resulting in a reduced treatment burden for patients as well as improved resource utilization (efficiency) at the treatment facility. The improved efficiency of delivering rituximab’s benefit to patients may broaden patient access to rituximab therapy in areas with low levels of healthcare resources, including IV-chair capacity constraints.

  • Modeled Health Economic Impact of a Hypothetical Certolizumab Pegol
           Risk-Sharing Scheme for Patients with Moderate-to-Severe Rheumatoid
           Arthritis in Finland
    • Authors: Erkki Soini; Christian Asseburg; Maarit Taiha; Kari Puolakka; Oana Purcaru; Riitta Luosujärvi
      Abstract: Purpose To model the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) outcomes, cost-effectiveness, and budget impact of certolizumab pegol (CZP) (with and without a hypothetical risk-sharing scheme at treatment initiation for biologic-naïve patients) versus the current mix of reimbursed biologics for treatment of moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Finland. Methods A probabilistic model with 12-week cycles and a societal approach was developed for the years 2015–2019, accounting for differences in ACR responses (meta-analysis), mortality, and persistence. The risk-sharing scheme included a treatment switch and refund of the costs associated with CZP acquisition if patients failed to achieve ACR20 response at week 12. For the current treatment mix, ACR20 at week 24 determined treatment continuation. Quality-adjusted life years were derived on the basis of the Health Utilities Index. Results In the Finnish target population, CZP treatment with a risk-sharing scheme led to a estimated annual net expenditure decrease ranging from 1.7% in 2015 to 5.6% in 2019 compared with the current treatment mix. Per patient over the 5 years, CZP risk sharing was estimated to decrease the time without ACR response by 5%-units, decrease work absenteeism by 24 days, and increase the time with ACR20, ACR50, and ACR70 responses by 5%-, 6%-, and 1%-units, respectively, with a gain of 0.03 quality-adjusted life years. The modeled risk-sharing scheme showed reduced costs of €7866 per patient, with a more than 95% probability of cost-effectiveness when compared with the current treatment mix. Conclusion The present analysis estimated that CZP, with or without the risk-sharing scheme, is a cost-effective alternative treatment for RA patients in Finland. The surplus provided by the CZP risk-sharing scheme could fund treatment for 6% more Finnish RA patients. Funding UCB Pharma.

  • Pharmacological and Non-pharmacological Treatments for Stroke Prevention
           in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation
    • Authors: Laura Ueberham; Nikolaos Dagres; Tatjana S. Potpara; Andreas Bollmann; Gerhard Hindricks
      Abstract: Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with significant risk of stroke and other thromboembolic events, which can be effectively prevented using oral anticoagulation (OAC) with either vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) or non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOACs) dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, or edoxaban. Until recently, VKAs were the only available means for OAC treatment. NOACs had similar efficacy and were safer than or as safe as warfarin with respect to reduced rates of hemorrhagic stroke or other intracranial bleeding in the respective pivotal randomized clinical trials (RCTs) of stroke prevention in non-valvular AF patients. Increasing “real-world” evidence on NOACs broadly confirms the results of the RCTs. However, individual patient characteristics including renal function, age, or prior bleeding should be taken into account when choosing the OAC with best risk–benefit profile. In patients ineligible for OACs, surgical or interventional stroke prevention strategies should be considered. In patients undergoing cardiac surgery for other reasons, the left atrial appendage excision, ligation, or amputation may be the best option. Importantly, residual stumps or insufficient ligation may result in even higher stroke risk than without intervention. Percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion, although requiring minimally invasive access, failed to demonstrate reduced ischemic stroke events compared to warfarin. In this review article, we summarize current treatment options and discuss the strengths and major limitations of the therapies for stroke risk reduction in patients with AF.

  • Content Validity of a Willingness to Quit Tool for Use with Current
           Smokers in Clinical Practice
    • Authors: Christine L. Baker; Marianna Bruno; Laura Grant; Chloe Johnson; Bryan Bennett; Elaine Brohan; Birol Emir
      Abstract: Introduction Despite reductions in rates of smoking in the past decade, smoking remains one of the most significant public health concerns. Quitting smoking can result in reductions in a number of serious health conditions. The brief Willingness to Quit (WTQ) tool can be used in routine clinical practice to assess current willingness to quit and engage a patient–physician dialogue regarding smoking cessation. The overall aim of this study was to validate the content of a WTQ tool for use with current smokers in clinical practice. Methods In-depth, qualitative interviews were conducted with 12 current smokers and five physicians. The interview was divided into two sections: concept elicitation (CE) followed by cognitive debriefing (CD). During CE, participants were asked questions exploring the different factors that can impact an individual’s willingness to quit smoking. During CD, participants were given a copy of the WTQ tool and asked to comment on their level of understanding and interpretability of the items and the feasibility of completing the tool in clinical practice. Results All of the current smokers (n = 12) and physicians (n = 5) interviewed indicated that the items were understandable and relevant to assess willingness to quit. The tool was considered simple and suitable for use in clinical practice. Conclusion The WTQ tool is a brief tool to assess willingness to quit and to engage communication between patients and physicians. All smokers should be offered smoking cessation support and facilitating a discussion on willingness to quit further supports a personalized quit plan. Funding Pfizer Inc.

    • Authors: Anna I. Guerdjikova; Brandon Walsh; Kevin Shan; Amy E. Halseth; Eduardo Dunayevich; Susan L. McElroy
      Abstract: Introduction Binge eating disorder (BED) is associated with obesity and major depressive disorder (MDD). Naltrexone extended-release (ER)/bupropion ER (NB) is approved as an adjunct to diet and physical activity for chronic weight management. In a prospectively designed 24-week open-label, single-arm, single-site trial of 25 women with MDD and overweight/obesity, NB reduced weight and depressive symptoms. Methods This post hoc analysis investigated the relationship between change in self-reported binge eating behavior (evaluated with the Binge Eating Scale [BES]) and changes in weight, control of eating, and depressive symptoms. Results At baseline, 91% of subjects had moderate or severe BES scores, suggesting BED. BES scores were significantly improved from week 4, and by week 24, 83% reported “little or no problem.” Improvement in BES scores correlated with improvement in depressive symptoms and control of eating. Conclusion NB may be effective in reducing binge eating symptoms associated with MDD and overweight/obesity. Evaluation of NB in BED appears warranted. Funding Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc.

  • Methodological Aspects in Studies Based on Clinical Routine Data
    • Authors: Lieven Nils Kennes
      Abstract: Randomized controlled clinical trials are regarded as the gold standard for comparing different clinical interventions, but generally their conduct is operationally cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive. Studies and investigations based on clinical routine data on the contrary utilize existing data acquired under real-life conditions and are increasingly popular among practitioners. In this paper, methodological aspects of studies based on clinical routine data are discussed. Important limitations and considerations as well as unique strengths of these types of studies are indicated and exemplarily demonstrated in a recent real-case study based on clinical routine data. In addition two simulation studies reveal the impact of bias in studies based on clinical routine data on the type I error rate and false decision rate in favor of the inferior intervention. It is concluded that correctly analyzing clinical routine data yields a valuable addition to clinical research; however, as a result of a lack of statistical foundation, internal validity, and comparability, generalizing results and inferring properties derived from clinical routine data to all patients of interest has to be considered with extreme caution.

  • The Impact of Histologic Phenotype in the Treatment of Sinonasal Cancer
    • Authors: Fernando López; Valerie J. Lund; Carlos Suárez; Carl H. Snyderman; Nabil F. Saba; K. Thomas Robbins; Vincent Vander Poorten; Primož Strojan; William M. Mendenhall; Alessandra Rinaldo; Alfio Ferlito
      Abstract: Abstract The management of sinonasal cancer is a challenge due to its low occurrence and anatomical and significant diversity of histological types. The therapeutic modality used should be tailored individually according to the histology, tumour stage, molecular profile and previous treatments. The clinical management of sinonasal cancer has improved greatly owing to developments in endoscopic surgery and precision radiotherapy. Complete surgical resection is the mainstay of sinonasal malignancies' management but multimodality therapy is associated with improved outcomes in certain histologies. The recognition of various histological types with biological behaviours more suitable for non-surgical modalities has allowed treatment protocols to become more tailored to the disease. In this review we aim to describe and to summarise the current data guiding the management of sinonasal cancer with emphasis on phenotypic variation.
