AB  - The nasal obstruction symptom evaluation (NOSE) scale is a validated
      disease-specific, self-completed questionnaire for the assessment of quality of
      life related to nasal obstruction. The aim of this study was to validate the
      Dutch (NL-NOSE) questionnaire. A prospective instrument validation study was
      performed in a tertiary academic referral center. Guidelines for the
      cross-cultural adaptation process from the original English language scale into a
      Dutch language version were followed. Patients undergoing functional septoplasty 
      or septorhinoplasty and asymptomatic controls completed the questionnaire both
      before and 3 months after surgery to test reliability and validity. Additionally,
      we explored the possibility to reduce the NOSE scale even further using graded
      response models. 129 patients and 50 controls were included. Internal consistency
      (Cronbach's alpha 0.82) and test-retest reliability (intraclass correlation
      coefficient 0.89) were good. The instrument showed excellent between-group
      discrimination (Mann-Whitney U = 85, p < 0.001) and high response sensitivity to 
      change (Wilcoxon rank p < 0.001). The NL-NOSE correlated well with the score on a
      visual analog scale measuring the subjective sensation of nasal obstruction, with
      exception of item 4 (trouble sleeping). Item 4 provided the least information to 
      the total scale and item 3 (trouble breathing through nose) the most,
      particularly in the postoperative group. The Dutch version of the NOSE (NL-NOSE) 
      demonstrated satisfactory reliability and validity. We recommend the use of the
      NL-NOSE as a validated instrument to measure subjective severity of nasal
      obstruction in Dutch adult patients.
