    The objective of this study is to explore the sinopulmonary outcomes of aspirin desensitization through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Embase and OVID Medline databases. A systematic review of published articles on outcomes following aspirin desensitization in any language for relevant articles was performed in February 2019. Outcomes included sinonasal quality-of-life assessment, sense-of-smell scores, FEV-1 (forced expiratory volume in 1 second), and medication/steroid use. Thirteen studies met the inclusion criteria out of 6055 articles screened. Aspirin desensitization resulted in significant improvement in FEV-1 and reduction in asthma medication/steroid use (P < .05). There was no significant improvement in the sinonasal quality of life of patients who underwent aspirin desensitization (P = .098). Aspirin desensitization appears to be effective in improving pulmonary outcomes and should be considered in the treatment of patients with aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease. However, good-quality studies are still needed to determine the ideal protocol tailored to individual patients.
