Abstract

Objective: To assess whether change in endoscopy score correlates with change in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) following endoscopic sinus surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis. Design: Prospective open cohort. Setting: Tertiary rhinology clinic. Patients: One hundred two adult patients with and without nasal polyposis who elected to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery and were followed up for 12±2 months postoperatively. Intervention: Patient characteristics and Lund-Mackay computed tomography scores were recorded preoperatively. Lund-Kennedy endoscopy scores and 2 HRQOL surveys, the Rhinosinusitis Disability Index and Chronic Sinusitis Survey, were examined before and after surgery. Main Outcome Measures: Postoperative changes in endoscopy score and HRQOL were examined using bivariate and multivariate analyses. Results: Statistically significant improvements were found in endoscopy score (P
