BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare 2 methods of nasal irrigation after septoplasty. The combined use of low-pressure, high-volume nasal saline (LPHVNS) irrigation, together with fluticasone propionate (FP) (LPHVNS+FP), was compared with high-pressure, low-volume nasal saline (HPLVNS) irrigation during the early postoperative period following septoplasty. METHODS: Seventy-three patients undergoing septoplasty for nasal obstruction were recruited for the study...

OBJECTIVES: Fluticasone propionate and nasal saline irrigation have been used in the treatment of sinonasal diseases for a long time. Our study investigates the effect of the combination of large volume low pressure nasal saline irrigation and fluticasone propionate for the treatment of pediatric acute rhinosinusitis. METHODS: Ninety-one pediatric patients with acute rhinosinusitis were included in our study. The patients were randomized into two groups. The first group (n=45) was treated with standard therapy (antibiotherapy+nasal decongestant) for 2 weeks, the second group was treated with the large volume low pressure nasal saline+fluticasone propionate combination for 3 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of nasal saline irrigation in adult patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library. REVIEW METHODS: A comprehensive search was performed, and 2 authors independently screened publications. The design of selected studies was assessed on directness of evidence and risk of bias. RESULTS: Of 1596 publications, 1 open-label randomized trial with high directness of evidence and moderate risk of bias was included...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Sinonasal diseases are often treated with topical agents administered through various application techniques, but few prior studies have examined their distribution to the olfactory mucosa. The purpose of this study was to compare the distribution of nasal irrigations to sprays within the olfactory cleft. STUDY DESIGN: Human cadaveric study. METHODS: Eight cadaveric heads, providing a total of 15 nasal sides, underwent treatment with methylene blue solution...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory dysfunction is considered an important part of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Corticosteroid therapy has been widely used in CRS. Effective topical delivery has been previously problematic. The post-endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) corridor is essential for adequate topical drug access. Devices delivering large volume with positive pressure allow better distribution to sinus mucosa. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of postoperative topical sinonasal steroid irrigations for CRS...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of intranasal aqueous triamcinolone acetonide in treating the tympanometric signs and symptoms of eustachian tube dysfunction, such as otitis media with effusion and negative middle ear pressure. DESIGN: Randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind prospective clinical trial. SETTING: Tertiary referral clinic. PATIENTS: Adults (≥18 years) and children (6-17 years) presenting with otitis media with effusion, negative middle ear pressure, or both...
