In this study, researchers have estimated the effects of Spray Cryotherapy (SCT) on management of healing in patients with nasal polyposis who undergone functional endoscopic sinus surgery. Nasal Polyposis is a benign tumor in nasal or paranasal mucosa, which confronts difficulties in management of healing after treatments with surgery. The aim of this study Nasal polyposis (NP) is a subgroup of chronic rhino sinusitis family which is defined as swellings, inflammation and discharge of nasal or paranasal mucosa.
