Patients who undergo nasal operation according to randomized patient's choice have been injected with saline merocel pack and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in their nasal path. Postoperative is followed by 1 month; Nose Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) scala score, bleeding, pain, and crust rate have been compared between 2 groups.


As a result of the 1 month follow-up, it was seen that the treatment group experienced better results in terms of NOSE scale than the control group patients and this was significant difference in terms of NOSE. Less bleeding and crust was seen on the treatment group patients than the control group patients and statically significant difference was found. In terms of visual analogue scale score no statically significant difference was found between 2 groups.
