    26. 26. Adenoma fibroma theory of Billroth<br />Large number of tubular glands seen in polypoidal tissue<br />Increase in the number of these glands causing adenomatous change could be the cause for nasal polyposis<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />23<br />
    27. 27. Necrotizing ethmoiditis – Woakes theory<br />Ethmoiditis cause osteitis of ethmoid bone<br />Necrotic bone initiates mucosal reaction causing oedema<br />Bone necrosis has not been demonstrated in the polypoidal tissue studied<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />24<br />
    28. 28. Glandular cyst theory<br />Presence of cystic glands in the nasal polypoidal tissue studied forms the basis<br />Submucosaloedema causes obstruction of tubular glands<br />Taylor in his study has proved that glandular oedema is caused after the formation of nasal polypi<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />25<br />
    29. 29. Mucosal exudate theory of Hayek<br />Nasal polyp is formed due to accumulation of exudate localized deep in the mucosa<br />This accumulation leads to mucosal bulge leading to polyp formation<br />These glands are found in the distal part of the polyp<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />26<br />
    30. 30. Blockage theory of Jenkins<br />Nasal mucosal inflammation<br />Accumulation of intracellular fluid<br />This causes polyp to develop<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />27<br />
    31. 31. Periphlebitis / Perilymphangitis theory of Eggston & Wolff<br />Recurrent inflammation of nasal mucosa blocks intracellular fluid transport mechanism<br />Oedema of lamina propria<br />These changes are diffuse and cannot account for localized nasal polyp<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />28<br />
    32. 32. Glandular hyperplasia theory of Krajina<br />Ch inflammation of nasal mucosa causes hyperplasia of nasal mucosal glands<br />This causes bulging of overlying mucosa<br />Associated vascular congestion aggravates the condition<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />29<br />
    33. 33. Epithelial rupture theory<br />Current<br />Epithelial rupture due to tissue oedema<br />Prolapse of lamina propria through the defect<br />If the prolapse is large it continues to grow forming nasal polyp<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />30<br />

    36. 36. Proetz theory<br />Faulty development of maxillary sinus ostium<br />This is usually large in these pts<br />Hypertrophied mucosa from antral cavity sprouts through this enlarged ostium<br />The growth of polyp is due to impediment to the venous return from the polyp<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />33<br />
    37. 37. Bernoulli’s phenomenon<br />Pressure drop occurs next to the constriction. This causes a suction effect pulling the sinus mucosa into the nasal cavity.<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />34<br />
    38. 38. Mucopolysaccharide theory<br />Proposed by Jakson<br />Changes in the mucopolysaccharide present in the ground substance causes nasal polyposis<br />These changes causes excessive water retention causing swelling of nasal mucosa which appears polypoidal<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />35<br />
    39. 39. Mill’s theory<br />Antrochoanal polyp could be maxillary mucoceles. This could be caused due to obstruction to mucinous glands.<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />36<br />
    40. 40. Ewing’s theory<br />This occurs due to mucosal fold being left close to the maxillary sinus ostium during development<br />This fold can be aspirated into the sinus cavity due to the effects of inspired air<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />37<br />
    41. 41. Vasomotor imbalance theory<br />This theory suggests that vasomotor imbalance can cause antrochoanal polyp.<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />38<br />
    42. 42. Infection / inflammation<br />Acinous mucous glands inside the antrum gets blocked<br />This forms a cystic lesion within the sinus cavity<br />This cyst gradually enlarges to completely fill the antrum<br />It exits via the accessory ostium to reach the nasal cavity<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />39<br />
    43. 43. Reasons for posterior migration of AC polyp<br />The accessory ostium is present posteriorly<br />Inspiratory air current is more powerful than expiratory current there by pushing the polyp posteriorly<br />The natural slope of nasal cavity is directed posteriorly<br />Cilia beats towards the choana<br />drtbalu's otolaryngology online<br />40<br />
