Research Activities


ENDOSCOPIC POLYPECTOMY PERFORMED IN CLINIC (EPIC)

Endoscopic Polypectomy In Clinic (EPIC) is a recently developed, deescalated form of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) performed in the Outpatient Clinic instead of the Operating Room for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps. EPIC represents a potentially disruptive innovation requiring rigorous evaluation before its widespread adoption. We are performing a non-inferiority RCT trial that will allow us to determine if EPIC is as effective as the current standard of care ESS.  For this work developing and testing EPIC, Dr. Kilty has received  several grants, including a CIHR grant through the Project Grant Competition.
