Plant combination reduces the risk of recurrence after polyp surgery

Every 13th German suffers from acute inflammation of the sinuses once a year - medically called "sinusitis" or "rhinosinusitis". This makes sinusitis one of the "Top 25" diseases that cause the most days off. If you suffer from this, you have to look after your bed for an average of six days, the Techniker Krankenkasse TK recently calculated in its health report.

The aim of medical treatment is to fight the infection and to improve the ventilation of the nose and the outflow from the sinuses. The use of a combination of five plant extracts (BNO 101) has proven particularly successful. The primrose combination has a pronounced antiviral and antibacterial activity, inhibits the inflammatory mechanisms in the respiratory tract and has a positive influence on the beating activity of the so-called cilia in the mucous membranes, which facilitates the removal of the viscous mucus. But the herbal medicinal product can obviously do even more: it also offers help when chronic sinusitis needs to be surgically repaired due to the formation of polyps, the Cologne-based ENT specialist Professor Dr. Steffen Maune in Munich.

In a pilot study, the team of Professor Maune recommended 471 minimally invasively freshly operated patients to follow-up treatment with regular use of a nasal douche, application of a lavender ointment and taking the herbal combination BNO 101. After an average of two years, 99 randomly selected patients were asked about their experiences. The result: 95 percent of the patients stated that they were satisfied with the treatment result. Only five percent of the patients interviewed by telephone reported the recurrence of polyps. These are significantly fewer recurrences than the usual standard follow-up (10 to 20 percent).

Professor Steffen Maune promised that the use of the phytocombination for aftercare after ENT operations will soon be checked methodically reliably in a randomized, controlled and blinded study. (KFN 02/2011 - 25.01.11)
