Research areas and methodologies

The Otorinolar Areaingoiatrics carries out research in the following areas:

  • Evaluation of inflammatory cytokines and neurotrophins of the nasal mucosa in patients undergoing functional surgery
  • Evaluation of patients with lar refluxingofaringeo
  • Otoneurological functional balance in patients with Meniere's disease operated for decompression of the endolymphatic sac and duct
  • Study of mast cell stimulation in the nasal mucosa for the evaluation of Ngf,Bdnf, Nt3,Nt4 and serotonin

The research activity of the Area makes use of a vast instrumental equipment for functional evaluations, there are also epidemiological and statistical skills for the design, planning, execution and analysis of intervention or observational epidemiological studies.

It also carries out clinical research protocols, both spontaneous and sponsored, for the study of the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of larvae symptoms.ingei of gastroesophageal reflux disease and for the evaluation of the nasal mucosa in patients undergoing functional surgery.
