Chronic rhinosinusitis or CRS is characterized by inflammation lasting longer then 12 weeks in the Paranasal sinuses and lining of the nasal cavity. One of the barriers in the medical treatment of CRS is the delivery of topical steroids to the sinuses. One of the ways to do this is the off-label use of a corticosteroid, like budesonide, in a high-volume saline sinus rinse. Our study looked at mixing 0.5 mg of budesonide in 240ml of saline rinsed daily.
