Facial pain/headache before and after surgery in patients with nasal polyposis.

CONCLUSION: Endoscopic surgery improved facial pain/headache and physical-psychosocial impacts in patients with nasal polyposis. However, one fifth of patients still experienced residual pain after surgery, requiring neurologic counseling to look for the non-sinonasal cause of their symptoms.

OBJECTIVE: Considering the limited amount of literature on facial pain/headache in patients with nasal polyposis, this prospective study assesses facial pain/headache and its impacts on the quality-of-life (QoL) before and after endoscopic surgery.

METHODS: Facial pain/headache was assessed, using the DyNaChron questionnaire, in 107 patients with nasal polyposis 1 day prior to surgery and 6 weeks after surgery. All patients were operated on endoscopically on the bilateral ethmoidal labyrinths and olfactory clefts.

RESULTS: Moderate or severe facial pain/headache was reported by 50% of the patients before surgery and by 20% after surgery. Post-operatively, 79.44% of patients reported no/very mild pain (vs 47.66% pre-operatively) and 20.56% moderate/severe pain (vs 52.33% pre-operatively). The pain was statistically reduced after surgery among patients with previous surgery (p = 0.0006). The scores of all analysed impacts of pain improved after surgery. However, patients with grade 1 polyps seemed to have less benefit from the surgery for facial pain/headache than those with more severe nasal polyposis.
