Abstract

Objectives/Hypothesis: To measure the change in quality-of-life (QoL) after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) in patients with medically recalcitrant chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and minimally affected computed tomography (CT) scans of the paranasal sinuses. Study Design: Prospective, multicenter cohort study at three academic, tertiary care centers. Methods: A total of 778 patients with CRS were enrolled between January 2001 and April 2009 after electing ESS. For the purposes of this analysis, patients with nasal polyposis, history of prior sinus surgery, or follow-up
