Abstract

Objectives: The objectives of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of functional endoscopic sinus surgery in improving quality of life using Sino nasal outcome test 22 and to compare how effective was endoscopic sinus surgery among smokers and non smokers.

Methods: This was a prospective study, conducted at a tertiary care centre were 100 patients with chronic rhinosinusitis who were planned to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery were included in the study. Patients were asked to complete pre operatively the Sino nasal outcome test 22 questionnaire and a questionnaire to know their smoking habits. The Sino nasal outcome test 22 questionnaire details were taken at end 6th month of post operative period and data were analysed.

Results: The results were that, there was significant reduction in Sino nasal outcome test 22 scores post operatively; however there was no significant difference in the reduction pattern among smokers and non smokers.

Conclusion: Endoscopic sinus surgery is an effective treatment in improving quality of life in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis and Sino nasal outcome test 22 can be considered as a tool to evaluate the quality of life and effectiveness of functional endoscopic sinus surgery. The role of smoking in development of chronic rhinosinusitis is to be evaluated further.
