Abstract

Objective To identify clinical characteristics of pediatric patients that failed nasal steroid therapy for management of chronic nasal obstruction and to evaluate the efficacy of adenoidectomy in this subset of patients. Design Retrospective chart review. Setting Tertiary care academic center. Subjects Analysis was performed on children that underwent adenoidectomy between 2011 and 2015 for chronic nasal obstruction refractory to nasal steroids. Results Seventy-four cases were identified. Average age of presentation was 3.6 years. Pre-operatively, 25.7% of patients had known asthma, 16.2% reported respiratory allergies, and 20.3% reported use of systemic antihistamines. The most common pre-operative symptoms included mouth breathing (82.4%), nasal congestion (81.1%), snoring (71.6%), and rhinorrhea (37.8%). Average adenoid size was 68% pre-operatively. Ninety-eight percent of patients experienced improvement or resolution of their symptoms following adenoidectomy. Conclusions This study demonstrates average rates of respiratory allergies, but high rates of asthma among patients that fail nasal steroid therapy for chronic nasal obstruction. Adenoidectomy is a highly efficacious intervention in this subset of patients.
