Budesonide nasal spray as prophylactic treatment after polypectomy (a double blind clinical trial).

Author information

  • 1ENT-Clinic, Falu hospital, Falun, Sweden.


This double-blind parallel-group study compared the effect of budesonide with placebo, in the prophylaxis of nasal polyp recurrence after evulsion. Seventy-three patients with first time or recurrent polypectomy were enrolled. At revisits 3 and 6 months after evulsion, the budesonide-treated patients had significantly lower polyp scores than the placebo-treated patients. Only patients with recurrent nasal polyposis benefited from the budesonide treatment, whereas no effect was evident in patients with first time evulsion.
