Chronic sinusitis

Chronic sinusitis

Chronic sinusitis is acknowledged to be due to a gradual obstruction caused by increased tissue formation in the ostiomeatal complex (site where sinuses normally drain into the nasal cavity).


The pathological mechanisms that cause sinusitis to become chronic have been attributed to mucociliary dysfunction, mucus stagnation (which favors bacterial infection) and the consecutive hypoventilations of the sinuses.
The cilia (microscopic filaments that cover the surface of the tissue in the nose) are always at work, refreshing the mucus coating of the nose. In coordinated waves, they sweep a layer of mucus to the back of the nose every 5-8 minutes. The mucus then slips into the throat where it is swallowed, rather than inhaled into the lungs. Rhinosinusitis cause the cilia to stop working (mucociliary dysfunction).
The treatment of chronic sinusitis is aimed at restoring ventilation and drainage of the paranasal sinuses, liquefying the accumulated secretion and removing it from the cavities. Securing good drainage of the affected paranasal sinus is a basic condition for a successful treatment of inflammatory processes in closed cavities
Nasodren reactivates the physiological defense mechanisms that have been counteracted by rhinosinusitis. Nasodren actively improves the mucociliary clearance of the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses, thus contributing to the accelerated conclusion of the inflammatory process. Nasodren restores the patency of the natural sinus ostia and clean sinuses and the nasal cavity, which contributes to the complete evacuation of pathologic content from all the paranasal sinuses.
Nasodren also has intense antiedemic action, directly related to the stimulated hypersecretion.
Therefore, Nasodren acts on practically all the mechanisms of sinusitis development being useful in the treatment of acute, and the prevention and treatment of exacerbations of chronic rhinosinusitis.
