Wandalsen,2 Dirceu Solé3 Abstract Objective: To correlate objective assessment of nasal obstruction, as measured by acoustic rhinometry (volume of the first 5 cm of the nasal cavity) and active anterior rhinomanometry (total nasal airway resistance), with its subjective evaluation (obstruction scores). Method: Thirty patients, aged 7 to 18 years, with persistent allergic rhinitis and thirty controls were enrolled. The obstruction score was reported for the whole nasal cavity and for each nostril separately.
The three variables were measured at baseline and after induction of nasal obstruction. Results: There were significant and negative correlations between resistance and nasal volume in all groups and scenarios, except for the most obstructed nostril, in the control group, post-obstruction.
For the whole nasal cavity, there was no significant correlation between objective and subjective variables except between score and total nasal cavity volume in the control group, post-ob...
