PURPOSE: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is characterized by chronic infection and inflammation of the sino-respiratory tract. Sinusitis is almost universally present in patients with CF and functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) may be a treatment option for patients with severe symptoms. The effect of sinus surgery on pulmonary outcomes in these patients is uncertain. Our objective was to evaluate changes in pulmonary function testing after FESS in a large cohort of pediatric and adult CF patients at a single institution, Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH).
