Abstract

Most patients with chronic rhinosinusitis seek medical treatment when the burden of symptoms negatively impacts their quality of life. The degree to which quality of life improves after sinus surgery is a critical indicator of surgical success. This article reviews quality of life outcomes after functional endoscopic sinus surgery, including relevant clinical factors, weaknesses in the current literature, and future research directions.
