Chronic rhinosinusitis: New understanding of specific and general Quality of life scores.

Slovick A, et al. Rhinology. 2016.

Abstract

Our goal in treating chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is to reduce sinonasal symptoms and improve quality of life (QoL). In patients with CRS, sinonasal symptoms have a significant impact on QoL. Various validated measures exist to quantify QoL such as the 22-item Sinonasal Outcomes Test (SNOT- 22) and MSNOT-20 Young Persons Questionnaire (MSYPQ) specific to CRS, while others measure general QoL, such as the EuroQol 5-Dimensional general health-related QoL survey (EQ5D).
