Nasal polyposis is one of the chronic airway diseases, which affects the patient’s quality of life in different ways. There are various complications along with nasal polyposis, which might be cured by drug administration. Due to failure of pharmacotherapy effects, various surgical approaches might be useful to resect the polyps with the possibility of polyposis recurrence after the surgery. In this study, we aimed to review different studies about the etiology and prevalence of recurrent nasal polyposis and the efficacy of endoscopic sinus surgery in reducing the incidence of recurrent nasal polyposis. We searched the PubMed and google scholar for the relevant articles. Based on the studied articles, there are various factors including the history of inflammatory diseases, the severity of polyposis, etc., which affect the long-term efficacy of surgical intervention.
