Does sinus surgery help asthma symptoms in patients with chronic sinusitis and asthma?

Yes, according to most studies.

The long-term impact of functional endoscopic sinus surgery on asthma was positive: 90% of patients reported feeling better in a small study http://bit.ly/C9xSq

Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) had a favorable effect on asthma in patients with symptomatic chronic sinusitis http://bit.ly/bNlEB

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery improved nasal and asthma symptoms in patients with nasal polyposis http://bit.ly/3OXkHV

However, chronic rhinosinusitis in asthmatics showed worse postoperative outcomes than in nonasthmatics http://bit.ly/4s1Xfl
