Clinical data of 288 chronic rhinosinusitis patients were retrospectively analyzed to investigate the risk factors of clinical prognosis, aiming to provide clinical evidence for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 288 patients diagnosed with chronic rhinosinusitis in the Department of Otolaryngology of the First Affiliated Hospital of Xinjiang Medical University were recruited. Among all participants, 177 were male and 111 were female, aged from 22 to 83 years, (52±14) years on average. Subsequent follow-up was conducted to evaluate surgical efficacy. Influencing factors of clinical prognosis were analyzed by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses.
RESULTS: After functional endoscopic sinus surgery by Messerklinger technique, 187 (64.9%) patients were fully recovered, 72 (25.0%) presented with improvement, and 28 (10.1%) were untreated. Univariate logistic regression analysis revealed that 11 variables were correlated with the clinical prognosis of chronic rhinosinusitis. Multivariate logistic regression analysis demonstrated that age, history of allergic rhinitis, severity of dysosmia, history of nasosinusitis surgery, and long-term use of nasal decongestant were the risk factors, whereas comprehensive therapy after surgery was a protective factor.
CONCLUSIONS: More emphasis should be placed upon the factors associated with the clinical prognosis of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis following undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery, offering consolidated evidence for the prevention and treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis.
