Implantable Devices/Drugs in the Management of Nasal Polyps

Abstract

The use of biomaterials, which include nasal packing and sinus stents, has an evolving role in the postoperative management of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps. Some of these biomaterials include drug-eluting properties. The usage of biomaterials postoperatively is both surgeon and patient specific. The published literature supports the use of these products and demonstrates the ability to limit swelling, lateralization and reduce polyp regrowth postoperatively. However, there are heterogeneity in both available materials and results that the otolaryngologist must factor in to the decision-making algorithm.
