The burden of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) symptomatology is frequently measured with the 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22). In some situations, such as when there is need for frequent sampling, a full SNOT-22 may be impractical, and an abbreviated measure may be useful. Herein, we study 4 questions reflecting the 4 SNOT-22 subdomains as accurate reflections of SNOT-22 content. In total, 250 patients with CRS completed a SNOT-22 and answered 4 questions about their total nasal symptoms, poor sleep quality, ear/facial pain, and mood (reflecting SNOT-22 subdomains) using visual analog scales (VASs). The 4 SNOT-22 subdomain VAS scores each correlated strongly with the corresponding SNOT-22 subdomain scores. The sum of the 4 subdomain question VAS scores was highly correlated with the total SNOT-22 score ( r = 0.77, P < .001). This preliminary study suggests information from the SNOT-22 may be ascertained through 4 questions reflecting the 4 SNOT-22 subdomains, although further validation is needed.

Abstract Objectives: To assess the impact of risk factors on the disease control among CRS patients, following 1 year of functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), and combining the risk factors to formulate a convenient, visualized prediction model. Design: A retrospective and nonconcurrent cohort study Setting and Participants: A total of 325 patients with Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) from June 2018 to July 2020 at the First Affiliated Hospital, the Third Affiliated Hospital, and the Seventh Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University. Main Outcomes Measures: Outcomes were time to event measures: the disease control of CRS after surgery 1 year. The presence of nasal polyps, smoking habits, allergic rhinitis (AR), the ratio of tissue eosinophil (TER), and peripheral blood eosinophil count (PBEC)and asthma was assessed. The logistic regression models were used to conduct multivariate and univariate analyses. Asthma, TER, AR, PBEC were also included in the nomogram. The calibration curve and AUC (Area Under Curve) were used to evaluate the forecast performance of the model. Results: In univariate analyses, most of the covariates had significant associations with the endpoints, except for age, gender, and smoking. The nomogram showed the highest accuracy with an AUC of 0.760 (95% CI, 0.688-0.830) in the training cohort. Conclusions: In this cohort study that included the asthma, AR, TER, PBEC had significantly affected the disease control of CRS after surgery. The model provided relatively accurate prediction in the disease control of CRS after FESS and served as a visualized reference for daily diagnosis and treatment.

Introduction. Chronic rhinosinusitis is a disease that occurs everywhere, characterized by inflammation of the mucous membrane of the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. If it is impossible to eliminate the causes of the recurrent disease with medical therapy, the use of surgical treatment help to recover the normal functioning of the ostium, including the ostiomeatal complex to improve ventilation and drainage of the paranasal sinuses and recover nasal breathing to relieve chronic inflammation.Purpose of the study. Assessment of the degree of intraoperative bleeding in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis.Materials and methods. On the basis of the FGBU SPB Research Institute of ENT of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation in the period from 2020 to 2021. the study of the effect of local intranasal glucocorticosteroids (INGKS) in the intraoperative period in patients with chronic polypous rhinosinusitis was carried out. The total amount of blood loss during surgery for chronic polypous rhinosinusitis in patients who used mometasone furoate preoperatively and in patients not taking topical hormonal drugs was analyzed.Results. In the study group, the average blood loss per operation was 257 ml, in the control group – 401 ml. In patients who took intranasal glucocorticosteroids during surgery, the intensity of bleeding is less pronounced. Undoubtedly, there are many reasons that affect the intensity of bleeding in general, however, a decrease in the inflammatory response in the nasal cavity and a decrease in inflammatory metabolites have a beneficial effect on the state of the nasal mucosa.Conclusion. The use of intranasal glucocorticosteroids in the preoperative period has a positive effect on reducing the inflammatory process in the nasal cavity, which helps to reduce the intensity of intraoperative bleeding.
