Treatment and Impacts of Chronic Sinusitis with the Confluence of Biyuan Tongqiao Granules and Saline Nasal Irrigation.


In this research study, we will study the clinical effect of Biyuan Tongqiao granules with saline nasal irrigation for treatment of chronic sinusitis. It will also study its impacts on the computed tomography (CT) score of the nasal sinus and negative reactions in patients. For this purpose, ninety (90) patients with chronic sinusitis were admitted to the hospital (June 2019 to June 2020). They were selected as the research subjects and divided into experimental and control groups randomly with 45 cases in each group. Control group patients were treated with nasal irrigation with normal saline. While, Biyuan Tongqiao granules combined with nasal irrigation with normal saline was treated by the experimental group. The CT scores of nasal sinus, clinical effect, the incidence of adverse reactions, recurrence rate, duration of nasal mucosal epithelialization, and nasal ciliary transmission speed of both the groups were compared. The patients' pain was assessed by the visual analogue scale (VAS), and the symptoms of sinusitis were scored by the SNOT-20 scale. The experimental group showed significantly lower sinus CT scores and better clinical effects. Adverse reactions were not observed in both the groups' probability ( > 0.05). The experimental group presented a significantly lower recurrence rate, shorter duration of nasal mucosal epithelialization, faster nasal ciliary transmission, and sharply lowers VAS scores and SNOT-20 scores than in the control group ( < 0.05). This proves Biyuan Tongqiao granules and nasal irrigation with normal saline can effectually boost the clinical efficacy and lessen the computed tomography score of nasal sinus in chronic sinusitis patients. It has a worthy clinical application and promotion.
