We evaluated the efficacy of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) nasal spray as an adjuvant therapy after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).
Patients with chronic rhinosinusitis who had received FESS for treatment were recruited and assigned to one of two groups at random at one month post-surgery.
In the HOCl group, patients received 0.02% HOCl nasal spray three times a day for two months. In the control group, normal saline (NS) nasal irrigation was given.
Before FESS and before and after nasal spray or irrigation, patients completed the Taiwanese version of the 22-item Sino-Nasal Outcome Test (TWSNOT-22).
In addition, patients received endoscopic examination, acoustic rhinometry, smell test, saccharine transit test, and bacterial cultures obtained from their middle meatus.
