Impaired olfaction is one of the major complaints of patients with nasosinus polyposis, with nasal obstruction. In case of failure of medical treatment for patients with polyposis nasosinusal, they may use endoscopic surgery nasosinusal. Before surgery, 73% are hyposmic or anosmic, compared to 43% after surgery. Persistence of hyposmia or anosmia despite the removal of polyps can be explained by mechanisms inflammatory in the mucous membrane of the olfactory cleft. In addition, studies in mice have shown a degeneration of primary olfactory neurons at the level of the olfactory mucosa in connection with directly with TNF alpha, a pro-inflammatory molecule.

Tests designed to assess language behavior and abilities. They include tests of vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and functional use of language, e.g., Development Sentence Scoring, Receptive-Expressive Emergent Language Scale, Parsons Language Sample, Utah Test of Language Development, Michigan Language Inventory and Verbal Language Development Scale, Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities, Northwestern Syntax Screening Test, Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Ammons Full-Range Picture Vocabulary Test, and Assessment of Children's Language Comprehension.
Ratings that express in numerical values the degree of impairment or abnormality in the function of specific organs.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
