Nasal Polyp Treatment
Nasal polyps do not disappear on their own after they occur. An ENT specialist should be consulted for treatment. Treatment of nasal polyps is done by medical and surgical methods. During the diagnosis, the extent of the polyps in the nose, the presence of allergy in the patient, clinical findings and various imaging methods are evaluated together. In severe cases, sinus surgery is applied to eliminate nasal polyps and accompanying sinus infection.
The majority of polyps can be reduced with systemic and intranasal corticosteroid therapy. It helps to improve the quality of life, such as improving nasal congestion, decreasing nasal discharge, and increasing the sense of smell.
If there is chronic inflammation and infection, if there are polyps that cause the nasal cavity to be completely filled and there is no response to medical treatment, then surgical treatment should be applied. As a surgical treatment, endoscopic sinus surgery is performed with an intranasal approach.
