Thirty patients suffering from uncomplicated chronic Sinusitis were enrolled in a clinical study to asses the efficacy of Ayurvedic medicine comprising of Tribhvan kirti rasa (Tablet) along with inhalation of steam of Dasamulakwath (Decoction) followed by nasya (intranasal instillation) with Anu tailam. The Tribhuvan kirti rasa was administered at a dose of 250mg b.d with Adrak swaras (Juice of Ginger).Steam inhalation of Dasmula kwath was given two times a day followed by nasya of Anu tail at a dose of 4 drops in both nostrils. The duration of the treatment varied from 45 days to 90 days. Radiological tests were done periodically. The patients were examined clinically in every week to asses the effect of medicine. The overall clinical efficacy was 96.6%. This medicine along with steam inhalation followed by Nasya was found to be well tolerated in general and no side effects were reported. Hence this treatment could be recommended for treatment of chronic Sinusitis.
