Validity of the French Version of the Child's Chronic Rhinosinusitis Questionnaire

2019-10-11 10:03:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A single quality questionnaire evaluating the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis in children currently exists. It has been validated in English for children aged 2 to 12. It comprises five areas of quality of life, each rated by a score ranging from 1 to 7 : sinus infection, nasal obstruction, allergic symptoms, emotional distress and activity limitation, coupled with an overall assessment of quality of life with an analogue visual scale (score from 1 to 10). This SN-5 (sinus and nasal quality of life survey) score showed excellent statistics of reproducibility, internal validity and ease of response. It is currently used in several international publications evaluating chronic sinus pathology in children.

The objective of the study is to validate the translation of the SN-5 questionnaire in French.

Description

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a common pathology that entrains significant medical consumption. The prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis in children is estimated to be 7.6%. Cardinal symptoms include nasal congestion, purulent rhinorrhea, facial pain, and persistent daytime cough. All these nasal symptoms often have an impact on the quality of life. The main objective of medical treatment is to improve this quality of life.

The treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis is mainly medical and includes nose washes with physiological serum, topical or general corticosteroid treatment or antibiotics. Surgical treatments such as adenoidectomy or endonasal functional surgery are reserved for medical treatment failures. According to a European consensus paper of 2012, the surgical strategy of the chronic rhinosinusitis of the child must start with a adenoidectomy with physiological serum washes, and then secondarily a endonasal functional surgery.

The ability of quality of life questionnaires to measure subjective symptoms over a certain length of time can help in the medical decision by determining the benefit of taking care. A single quality questionnaire evaluating the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis in children currently exists. It has been validated in English for children aged 2 to 12. It comprises five areas of quality of life, each rated by a score ranging from 1 to 7 : sinus infection, nasal obstruction, allergic symptoms, emotional distress and activity limitation, coupled with an overall assessment of quality of life with an analogue visual scale (score from 1 to 10).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.

Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the ETHMOID SINUS. It may present itself as an acute (infectious) or chronic (allergic) condition.

The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
