Sinus disease can be treated with nasal steroids and nasal lavage. Polyps may require surgical treatment. Audiological assessment, hearing aids, and communication assistance should be offered where necessary. Patients with end-stage lung disease are candidates for lung transplantation.” ~ Orpha.net; Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia
