Özet

Aim: The aim of this study was to Investigate whether the endoscopic findings, corona! computed tomography data and the level of histopathological changes observed in tissue samples had any effects on the quality of life in chronic rhinosinusitis cases. Material and Method: In this prospective study, 34 patients diagnosed with chronic rhinosinusitis (Group 1) and 34 volunteer individuals having no chronic rhinosinusitis (Group 2) were included. Detailed anamnesis, endoscopic examination findings, quality of life in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis questionnaire scores and coronal paranasal computed tomography scores were recorded in the files of all the cases. Endoscopic evaluation findings were evaluated using the Lund-Kennedy scoring system, all the cases were given a chronic rhinosinusitis evaluation questionnaire, coronal paranasal computed tomography findings were scored using the Lund-MacKay system. Results: The average quality-of-life score, the average radiological score, the average endoscopic examination score, the histopathological evaluation of the surgical specimens, the average inflammatory score, the average fibrosis scores and the average osteoblastic-osteoclastic score was statistically different between two groups. When a correlation analysis was performed, the quality-of-life scores were found to have a negative correlation with the radiological scores, endoscopic scores. fibrosis scores and osteoblastic-osteoclastic activity scores in Group 1. And also radiological scores were positively correlated both with the endoscopic scores and the osteoblastic-osteoclastic activity scores and a positive correlation was found between the endoscopic scoring and the mucosal inflammation in Group 1. Discussion: The results of our study showed that the histopathological changes affected the quality of life negatively.
