Özet

Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a global health concern for women and affects several systems, such as cardiovascular system, autoimmune disease, and psychological status. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of POI on nasal mucociliary clearance time via saccharin test by comparing postmenopausal women and healthy controls. Thirty-five (35) patients with POI, 35 healthy postmenopausal women and 35 healthy controls were recruited in this study. All study participants underwent measurements of nasal mucociliary clearance time via saccharine test. When women with POI and postmenopausal women compared with the controls, nasal mucociliary clearance time was longer in both women with POI and postmenopausal women. When women with POI were compared with postmenopausal women, the nasal mucociliary clearance time was not difference between two groups. There was a significant prolonged nasal mucociliary clearance time in the women with POI and postmenopausal women. Lower serum estradiol levels in women with POI as well as postmenopausal women had an adverse effect of nasal mucociliary clearance time.
