Pre- and postoperative sinus penetration of nasal irrigation.The Laryngoscope (2008)
AbstractObjective/Hypothesis: Endoscopic sinus surgery is an accepted treatment of medically recalcitrant chronic rhinosinusitis. Effective saline douching may improve long term outcomes of chronic rhinosinusitis but is often impaired by postoperative ostial stenosis. The aim of this study is to determine a critical ostial size at which douching solution reliably enters the sinus cavities.
