Treating nasal polyps
Where do you want to deliver a topical steroid when treating nasal polyps?
Deposition with conventional intranasal steroids (INS) occurs predominantly in the anterior portion of the nasal cavity.1

- Minimal deposition within the turbinates, ostiomeatal complex, and posterior nasal regions where most polyps originate1-4
- Most studies suggest that conventional INS do not reach the paranasal sinuses even after endoscopic sinus surgery5
- The clinical relevance of different deposition patterns has not been established
