Abstract:
Background: When chronic rhinosinusitis brought on by sinonasal polyposis is taken into account, the expenses of both direct medical care and lost productivity are significant. Chronic rhinosinusitis is mostly caused by inflammation, which can be treated with a variety of drugs, such as systemic steroids, topical corticosteroids, antibiotics, and saline irrigations.
Methods: Between August 2012 and July 2013, this study was carried out in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Sardar Rajas Medical College and Hospital, Bhawanipatna, Orissa, India. This study examines forty patients who have sinonasal polyposis and chronic rhinosinusitis. Twenty patients had systemic steroids during surgery, whereas the other twenty patients got placebos. Operative and clinical data underwent critical data analysis.
Results: This study evaluates the impact of pre- and post-operative systemic steroids on surgical outcomes for patients receiving ESS for the treatment of CRSwP. It is a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. We used both objective and subjective measures of success. Finding out how steroid use influenced these measures of subjective and objective well-being was the main goal of the study.
Conclusion: Adjuvant steroids, which are given during surgery, can also help prevent postoperative issues such as scarring, synechiae formation, postoperative crusting, and recurrence.
