The goal of this request was to explore the association between sinus stent implants with mometasone and subsequent development of diminished visual acuity in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). This request contains two reports:
- Report 1 (cder_mpl1r_wp062) examined drug utilization of oral and intranasal steroids in the SDD, and was used to characterize use of oral and intranasal steroids in Report 2. This request was distributed to Data Partners on October 11, 2017.
- Report 2 (cder_mpl1r_wp061) examined the association between stent implants, intranasal steroids, oral steroids, and sinus surgery and subsequent development of diminished visual acuity, glaucoma, cataracts, or blindness. This request was distributed to Data Partners on October 27, 2017.
Data from August 1, 2011 to May 31, 2017 from 16 Data Partners contributing to the SDD were included in these reports.
