Postoperative care of the nasal mucosa after surgery is essential for rapid healing and reduced nasal sensitivity.
A recent study compared the results of a group of patients undergoing sinus surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis with and without polyps to determine the effectiveness of nasal sprays in post-operative care and hygiene.
Volunteers tested two different products to evaluate which product was most effective in post-intervention recovery.
Sterimar scored well for its proven effectiveness in this case as well, helping to hydrate the nasal mucosa, maintain optimal hygiene in the affected area, and relieve post-surgery discomfort.
The tests were performed over a period of 12 weeks after surgery and consisted of periodic checks at 2, 4, and 12 weeks post op. Constant monitoring determined a better state of the nasal mucosa in patients who used a seawater-based spray.
Sterimar uses a micro diffusion system that produces a very fine spray, which applied on the mucous membrane, removes not only excess mucus but also other allergens or particles that endanger the health of the nose.
Since it does not contain preservatives or other active substances, it can also be used to relieve post-operative symptoms or to ensure nasal hygiene after sinus operations.
