Paper Abstract

A variety of surgical procedures has been introduced for the reduction of hyperplastic inferior nasal turbinates. We describe the results of the submucosal laser turbinotomy with the Nd:YAG laser in 15 patients as a new simple, effective and low-risk operation method, which leads to early subjective and objective improvement of nasal breathing.
