  1. Values are expressed as medians (IQR). The Mann-Whitney U test was used for unpaired comparisons
  2. CRSsNP Chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps, CRSwNP Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps
  3. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Italics P values show significant results (<0.05)
