Effect of surgery, delivery device and head position on sinus irrigant penetration in a cadaver model
TLDR
A significant positive effect of surgery was demonstrated for each sinus as well as for the delivery device, and high-volume irrigant devices are more effective, and the head position plays a significant role in irrigant distribution to the frontal sinus.
Cadaveric Assessment of the Efficacy of Sinus Irrigation After Staged Clearance of the Medial Maxillary Wall
TLDR
It is suggested that while a standard maxillary antrostomy may be sufficient to achieve good topical therapy distribution, more extensive surgery such as a modified medial maxillectomy might be required for sufficient force of sinus lavage.
Squeeze Bottle versus Saline Spray after Endoscopic Sinus Surgery for Chronic Rhinosinusitis: A Pilot Multicentre Trial
TLDR
In this pilot multicenter trial examining patients with chronic rhinosinusitis undergoing ESS, both squeeze bottle and saline spray showed significant improvement in SNOT-22, POSE, and NSS scores at one-month postoperatively.
Sinus implants for chronic rhinosinusitis: technology evaluation
TLDR
Novel technology has far-reaching implications, with future indications likely extending beyond the operating room into the clinic setting, to treat CRS patients, with inflammatory exacerbations or recurrent polypoid disease, who would otherwise require additional surgery.
Efficacy of Targeted Middle Meatal Antibiotics and Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
TLDR
Topical antibiotic delivery to the MM via bioabsorbable sponges may reduce the need for postoperative systemic antibiotics and provide a cost-effective alternative that eliminates the issues of antibiotic side effects, drug–drug interactions, and medication compliance in the postoperative setting.
Sinus Irrigation Penetration After Proposed Modified Draf IIa Technique in a Side-to-Side Cadaveric Model
TLDR
This proposed modification consists of a Draf IIa combined with an agger nasi punch-out procedure and partial trimming of the vertical lamella of the middle turbinate back to the posterior table of the frontal sinus without drilling the beak, and may be easily adapted into frontal ESS when indicated.
A computational study of functional endoscopic sinus surgery and maxillary sinus drug delivery.
TLDR
MS ventilation and drug delivery increased following FESS, the largest virtual antrostomy led to greatest delivery, and MS delivery was sensitive to particle size, suggesting certain particle sizes improve this delivery.
The Effect of Hypertonic Saline Versus Isotonic Saline Irrigation Following Endoscopic Sinus Surgery- A Comparative Study
TLDR
Hypertonic saline is the recommended irrigation solution as its use is associated with less crusting, drying and obstruction in the nose for the postoperative period following ESS.
Extent of Nasal Irrigation in Non-operated Sinuses: A Cadaveric Trial.
TLDR
Nasal irrigation reached the cavities of non-operated paranasal sinuses, however, while the extent of irrigation was limited in the SLF, it was well achieved in the HDF position.

Comparison of radical (nasalisation) and functional ethmoidectomy in patients with severe sinonasal polyposis. A retrospective study.
TLDR
This study suggests that in the treatment of nasal polyposis complete ethmoidectomy leads to better long term results than incomplete ethmoidsectomy.
Modified Endoscopic Medial Maxillectomy for Chronic Maxillary Sinusitis
Background Recently, modified endoscopic medial maxillectomy (MEMM) has been described as an alternative technique to open maxillectomy for benign sinonasal neoplasms. However, few reports discuss
Endonasal Sinus Surgery Improves Mucociliary Transport in Severe Chronic Sinusitis
TLDR
Ciliary beat frequency of nasal respiratory cells and nasal mucus transport are impaired in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis, and after microscopic endonasal sinus surgery, impaired mucociliary transport is improved, and ciliaryBeat frequency remains lower than in normals.
Nasal Irrigation for the Alleviation of Sinonasal Symptoms
TLDR
Daily nasal irrigation using either a bulb syringe, nasal irrigation pot, and daily reflexology massage were equally efficacious and resulted in improvement in the symptoms of chronic sinusitis in over 70% of subjects.
Delivery of nasal drops to the middle meatus: which is the best head position?
TLDR
The 'Mygind' or 'Ragan' position should be used for nasal drop administration for chronic sinusitis and intranasal polyps, and the 'Mecca' position was the most uncomfortable.
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery in the management of chronic rhinosinusitis. An objective assessment.
TLDR
Results offer quantitative evidence of clinical improvement following functional endoscopic sinus surgery which supports the pathophysiological concepts on which the technique is based.
Nasal saline irrigations for the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis.
TLDR
Saline irrigations are well tolerated and the beneficial effect of saline appears to outweigh these drawbacks for the majority of patients, and the use of topical saline could be included as a treatment adjunct for the symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis.
Qualitative Aspects of Nasal Irrigation Use by Patients With Chronic Sinus Disease in a Multimethod Study
TLDR
HSNI is a safe, well-tolerated, inexpensive, effective, long-term therapy that patients with chronic sinonasal symptoms can and will use at home with minimal training and follow-up.
Objective assessment of endoscopic sinus surgery in the management of chronic rhinosinusitis: an update.
TLDR
Significant improvement was demonstrated in all symptoms examined, olfactory tests and ciliary beat frequency whilst acoustic rhinometry provided an attempt to quantify the surgical cavities.
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis.
TLDR
FESS as currently practiced is a safe surgical procedure but the limited evidence available suggests that FESS as practiced in the included trials does not confer additional benefit to that obtained by medical treatment (+/- sinus irrigation) in chronic rhinosinusitis.
