Abstract

There is some question as to whether surgical treatment of sinus disease in patients with cystic fibrosis improves pulmonary function or helps patients achieve their ideal body weight. To investigate this matter, we retrospectively studied 17 children with cystic fibrosis who had undergone endoscopic sinus surgery at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine over a 15-year period. All patients had advanced sinus disease at the time of surgery. Although there was an overall increase in mean pulmonary function values, which peaked 1 month post-operatively, no statistically significant improvements were maintained at 6 and 12 months. Nor was there any significant change in these patients' percentage of ideal body weight.
