BACKGROUND There is an increasing need for a validated grading system to assess sinusitis severity as observed on endoscopic examination.

We present a novel and straightforward endoscopic scoring system measuring discharge, inflammation, and polyps/edema (DIP). The aim of this study is to determine correlation of the DIP score with existing sinus endoscopy scoring systems, and to determine interrater and… CONTINUE READING
