Objective: The objective of this randomized, prospective, double‐blind study was to compare nasal irrigation using hypertonic Dead Sea salt (DSS) solution with hypertonic saline in the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis and improvement of quality of life (QOL). 
Dead Sea salt irrigations vs saline irrigations with nasal steroids for symptomatic treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis: a randomized, prospective double‐blind study
TLDR
This study aimed to compare the efficacy of Dead Sea salt (DSS) irrigations and DSS nasal spray vs saline irrigation and topical nasal steroid spray in the treatment of symptoms of CRS. Expand
Effect of Budesonide Added to Large-Volume, Low-pressure Saline Sinus Irrigation for Chronic Rhinosinusitis: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
This study shows that budesonide in saline nasal lavage results in clinically meaningful benefits beyond the benefits of saline alone for patients with CRS, and given the imprecision in the treatment effect, further research is warranted. Expand
The Potential Role of Hyaluronan in Minimizing Symptoms and Preventing Exacerbations of Chronic Rhinosinusitis
TLDR
The results of this study suggested that intermittent treatment with topical 9-mg sodium hyaluronate plays a role in minimizing symptoms and could prevent exacerbations of CRS. Expand
Are Saline Irrigations Effective in Relieving Chronic Rhinosinusitis Symptoms? A Review of the Evidence
TLDR
It is found that NSI causes minimal or no adverse affects, provides a cheaper alternative to many traditional treatments, and decreases the risk of antibiotic overuse; therefore, health care providers can prudently include NSI as a treatment for CRS. Expand
Comparison on the efficacy of dexpanthenol in sea water and saline in postoperative endoscopic sinus surgery.
TLDR
The efficacy of dexpanthenol was comparable to nasal saline irrigation in the postoperative care of sinusitis patients following endoscopic sinus surgery and may be useful in young children and complicated cases. Expand
Nasal irrigation: From empiricism to evidence-based medicine. A review.
TLDR
It emerged that large-volume low-pressure nasal douche optimizes the distribution and cleansing power of the irrigation solution in the nasal cavity, showing that the efficacy of nasal irrigation is multifactorial. Expand
A two‐center, assessor‐blinded, prospective trial evaluating the efficacy of a novel hypertonic draining cream for cellulite reduction: A Clinical and instrumental (Antera 3D CS) assessment
TLDR
A new hypertonic topical product with draining action (HTC) containing NaCl 13%, escine, caffeine, and beta‐sitosterol has been recently developed and a 28‐day double‐blind placebo‐controlled study has shown that this cream is able to reduce thigh circumference and the thickness of adipose tissue.

Commentary on ‘Nasal saline irrigations for the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis’
TLDR
This is a commentary on a Cochrane review, published in this issue of EBCH, first published as: Nasal saline irrigations for the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis. Expand
WITHDRAWN: Nasal saline irrigations for the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis.
Saline nasal irrigations for chronic rhinosinusitis: From everyday practice to evidence-based medicine. An update
TLDR
The aim of this article is to review the published literature regarding all of the potential therapeutic effects of SNIs in adult CRS patients who had not undergone sinus surgery and clarify the role of the various saline nasal solutions and protocols (particularly the volume, frequency and duration of treatment).

Clinical Study and Literature Review of Nasal Irrigation
TLDR
The objective of this study was to determine the efficacy of the use of pulsatile hypertonic saline nasal irrigation in the treatment of sinonasal disease. Expand
A Comparative Study of Three Methods of Nasal Irrigation
Objective: To assess the effectiveness of three methods of nasal irrigation on distributing saline to the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
Efficacy of daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation among patients with sinusitis: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation improves sinus-related quality of life, decreases symptoms, and decreases medication use in patients with frequent sinusitis and primary care physicians can feel comfortable recommending this therapy. Expand
Bathing in a magnesium‐rich Dead Sea salt solution improves skin barrier function, enhances skin hydration, and reduces inflammation in atopic dry skin
TLDR
This work examined the efficacy of bathing atopic subjects in a salt rich in magnesium chloride from deep layers of the Dead Sea (Mavena® Dermaline Mg46 Dead Sea salt, Mavena AG, Belp, Switzerland). Expand

  • E. Juniper, G. Guyatt
  • Medicine
  • Clinical and experimental allergy : journal of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology
  • 1991
TLDR
The RQLQ is likely to prove useful as a measure of health‐related quality of life in clinical trials in both rhinoconjunctivitis and rhinitis. Expand
Evaluation of a multicentre study of synchronous application of narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy (TL‐01) and bathing in Dead Sea salt solution for psoriasis vulgaris
TLDR
A significant effect of therapy is demonstrated in both the ATP and the ITT groups for this new treatment system which imitates, as far as possible, the Dead Sea climatic conditions, with no severe side‐effects and a high acceptance by the patients. Expand
Advances in postoperative care following functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
TLDR
One goal of postoperative care includes the prevention of scar formation, such as middle turbinate collapse, and specific techniques include mucosal preservation, middle meatal spacer corticosteroids and culture-directed antibiotics. Expand
Mucociliary Clearance and Buffered Hypertonic Saline Solution
TLDR
Results showed buffered hypertonic saline nasal irrigation to improve mucociliary transit times of saccharin, while buffered normal saline had no such effect. Expand
Effect of hypertonic saline, amiloride, and cough on mucociliary clearance in patients with cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Inhalation of hypertonic saline is a potentially useful treatment in patients with cystic fibrosis as both the AML and HS solutions induced cough in some patients, and this was to eliminate the possible confounding effect of cough on MCC measurement. Expand
Physiologic and hypertonic saline solutions impair ciliary activity in vitro.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that mucolytic effects induced by hyperosmolarity should be attained preferably with hypertonic saline 7% in patients with cystic fibrosis or asthma. Expand
