Intranasal steroid sprays and nasal saline rinses are standard medical therapies for nasal polyps and CRSwNP treatment. Sprays are safe for long-term use, helping to reduce polyp size and improve CRSwNP symptoms. Specialty devices, such as the Optinose, spray deeper into the nasal cavity, helping to make steroid sprays more effective in reducing inflammation and nasal polyps. Leukotriene inhibitor (Montelukast) spray may also be prescribed to reduce symptoms associated with nasal polyps.
Prescription oral steroids can also be effective in shrinking polyps and improving symptoms, however risk of side effects with oral steroids preclude their long-term use.
Antibiotics may also be prescribed if there is evidence of an active infection.
More invasive CRSwNP treatments are typically offered by otolaryngologists when other treatment attempts have failed. Surgical removal is one such option, however, polyps tend to recur on a relatively short timescale, requiring long-term treatment with nasal steroids even after removal surgery. Nasal polyps can also be treated by implanting corticosteroid eluting stents.
