    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is characterized by long-term inflammation of the paranasal sinuses combined with bilateral glassy protuberances from the middle meatus of the nasal cavity. This disease has an unknown cause, affects roughly 3% of the population and causes symptoms from the upper airways. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Nasal polyps. A clinical study of endoscopic score systems and epidemiology

    Författare :Leif Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nasal polyps; score system; endoscope; epidemiology; airways; HRQL;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Nasal polyps are a common disease, the etiology and pathogenesis of which are still unclear. For diagnosis, a nasal endoscope is essential, while for follow-up treatment, a reliable score system is necessary. The existing score systems consist of few score steps and measure only large changes in polyp size. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On Health-Related Quality of Life and Diagnostic Improvements in Rhinosinusitis

    Författare :Pernilla Sahlstrand Johnson; allergi och livskvalitet Laryngoesofagologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rhinosinusitis; nasal polyps; health-related quality of life; absenteeism; Doppler ultrasound; acoustic streaming; attenuation;

    Sammanfattning : Rhinosinusitis is defined as an inflammatory process involving the mucosa of the nose and one or more of the paranasal sinuses. The aims of the work presented in this thesis were to investigate the degree to which rhinosinusitis affects the health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and to determine whether the diagnosis of this condition can be improved using Doppler ultrasound.
