Abstract

Chronic respiratory otorhinolaryngological (ORL) diseases may exacerbate. Broncalt® is a class II Medical Device containing: thermal water (Medesano, PR, Italy), hyaluronic acid, and grapefruit seed extract. It could exert a safe and effective anti-inflammatory, washing, and antimicrobial activity. The current survey, conducted in clinical practice of 84 Italian ORL centers, evaluated its safety and efficacy in the treatment of patients with exacerbated chronic upper airways disease. The 459 (254 males, mean age 44.7 years) patients were evaluated at baseline (T0) and after a 2-week treatment (T1), treated or not-treated with Broncalt®. Signs and symptoms severity were measured by visual analogue scale. Broncalt® significantly, quickly, and safely diminished the clinical features in all sub-groups (p<0.001 for all). In conclusion, Broncalt® is a class II Medical Device able to exert a safe, quick, and effective activity in patients with relapsed chronic ORL disorders. (www.actabiomedica.it).
