Please note the ANZCTR will be unattended from Friday 20 December 2019 for the holidays. The Registry will re-open on Tuesday 07 January 2020. Submissions and updates will not be processed during that time.

Please be advised that as the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The intervention that is being trialled is a gel complex consisting of Chitosan-Dextran gel plus Budesonide plus Ropivacaine. 10mLs of this complex will be applied to the sinonasal cavity immediately following endoscopic sinus surgery by the surgeon. The complex will include the Chitosan-Dextran gel (5% Succinyl-Chitosan & 300mg Dextran-aldehyde), 1mL of 1% Ropivacaine (10mg/mL), 2mL of Budesonide (1mg). This complex will be applied twice to each patient (Once for each sinus side).
Intervention code [1] 291361 0
Treatment: Drugs
Comparator / control treatment
The comparative treatment is the same gel complex including dosages without the addition of ropivacaine. Therefore Chitosan-Dextran gel plus Budesonide will be applied to each sinus side, without the addition of Ropivacaine. It will be applied to the sinonasal cavity immediately following endoscopic sinus surgery by the surgeon.
Control group
Active

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 294485 0
Pain after endoscopic sinus surgery as determined by numerical rating scale.
Timepoint [1] 294485 0
Pain scores will be collected at pre-determined time points for a week following the surgery.

The time-points are as follows:
- 2 hours after the procedure
- 12 hours after the procedure
- 24 hours after the procedure
- 2 days after the procedure
- 3 days after the procedure
- 4 days after the procedure
- 5 days after the procedure
- 6 days after the procedure
- 7 days after the procedure
Secondary outcome [1] 313434 0
Presence and magnitude of adhesions using an ordinal scale following endoscopic sinus surgery, as determined by endoscopic video recordings of the sinuses by the treating surgeon.
Timepoint [1] 313434 0
Endoscopic video recording will occur at 2 weeks, 8 weeks and 3 months following endoscopic sinus surgery.

Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Patients will be recruited and randomised by the associate investigator, via the use of sealed opaque envelopes. Allocation concealment will only apply to the treating surgeon responsible for administering the gel complex to the sinuses. The surgeon will continue to be blinded to the treatment for the entire follow-up period (3 months). The associate investigator cannot be blinded to the treatment as they are responsible for mixing of the gel with the active medications.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to further develop a nasal dressing for use after endoscopic sinus surgery. The gel being use is called Chitodex (Chitosan-Dextran gel) and has already been shown to be effective in controlling blood loss and reducing adhesions after endoscopic sinus surgery. The effectiveness and safety of the gel has been demonstrated in numerous human and animal trials.

We are trying to incorporate additional medications into the gel to further accentuate it's uses after endoscopic sinus surgery. The addition of budesonide has shown to reduce adhesions and inflammation after sinus surgery, thus reducing the failure rate of the operation and the chance a patient needs another procedure. This has been demonstrated in a clinical trial.

We hypothesise that the addition of a local anaesthetic to the gel, known as ropivacaine, will reduce the pain and discomfort that patients typically experience after endoscopic sinus surgery.
