The chief merit of the meta-analysis1 is to alert the fields of medical and dental sciences (separated as they are by a systemic gulf) that sinusitis is somehow linked to stoke. My group’s work, one of the included studies, suggests sinusitis and stroke may arise in parallel from proximate periodontitis, the “a priori” hypothesis proposing links of incidental sinusitis to atherosclerosis. Crucially, our study reproduced a key quirk from periodontal research that periodontitis links are stronger for stroke than for coronary artery disease.
