Abstract

Investigations of etiology, pathogenesis and treatment of polypous ethmoiditis show the role of chronic inflammation, sensitization and autoimmune reactions in mechanisms of nasal polyposis (NP). The development of postoperative recurrences of NP depends on the microflora, defective microcirculation, permeability of the histohematic barriers of the nasal and labyrinthine mucosa and metabolism of glycosaminoglycanes in the above mucosa. Adequate treatment methods are suggested: He-Ne laser radiation, UV blood radiation, cryotherapy, corticosteroids. Promising are also autovaccine, autovaccine with tissue (polypous) antigen, ozone solutions.
