Abstract

The evaluation of the quality of life of LPR patients is crucial to assess the success of medical therapy and

help with diagnosis. Assessment of life quality of patients with refsractory LPR by using the selected LPR

HRQL questionnaire because it is more practical to use, easy to set scoring and analyze data. Objective: This

study aims at investigating the reflux characteristic and the correlation with refractory Laryngopharyngeal

Reflux (LPR) patients quality of life. Method: The examination is performed on ten refractory LPR

patients using 24hour - MultichanneI Intraluminal Impedance pH monitoring, then grouped according to

the characteristics of the reflux acid, non-acidic, and mixed. Furthermore, the assessment of life quality by

using LPR-HRQL questionnaire. Data analysis using Chi-Square and Spearman’s Rho methods. Results:

The sampleLPR refractory is generally female (66.7%), while males (33.3%). Mixed reflux type as much

as 44.4%, then 33.3% acid reflux, and a non-acidic reflux 22.2%. LPR occurrence of majority at upright

position (66.7%). Non-acid reflux patients consistently for all symptoms/complaints, indicating quality of

life is disrupted based on questionnaires found in the LPR-HRQL (100%). Conclusion: The quality of life

of non-acid reflux patients is more disturbed than the acidic and mixed reflux group.
