Objective: Comparative studies evaluating budesonide and saline nasal irrigations for patients with polyposis/ rhinosinusitis are deficient in the current literature. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of budesonide nasal irrigations compared with saline irrigations during postoperative care of patients with rhinosinusitis.
Materials and Methods: A total of 100 patients who underwent functional Endoscopic Sinus SurgeryESS) were randomly divided into two groups (A and B) of 50 participants each (normal saline [NS] + budesonide irrigation and NS irrigation alone, respectively). Pre- and post operative evaluation was done with a 22-item sinonasal outcomes test (SNOT-22), and Lund Kennedy endoscopic (LKE scores) in second and sixth week.
Results: The condition of the patients significantly improved in both intervention arms related to SNOT-22 and LKE score at each postoperative visit (Group A: p<0> Conclusion: Steroid nasal irrigation is a good option in postoperative EES patients. The difference of reduction of both SNOT 22 score and LKEscore was statistically significant (p <0>
