W.J. Fokkens - V.J. Lund - J. Mullol

Since the preparation of the first EPOS document an increasing amount of evidence on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment has been published.

In the 2007 revision new data have led to a considerable increase in amount of available evidence and therefore to considerable changes in the schemes for diagnosis and treatment.
Moreover, the whole document has been made more consistent, some chapters, like the one on surgery, are significantly extended and others are added. Last but not least contributions from many other parts of the world have attributed to our knowledge and understanding.
This summary indicates the main differences between the first EP3OS document and the EPOS 2007 with emphasis on definition, diagnosis and treatment of CRS by otorhinolaryngologists.
