Paper Abstract

The conventional way for the rhinopolypus operation is to use the polyp snare to cut polyp tissue. This method includes many weaknesses. (1) It often leads to polyp residue or even polyp recurrence when using polyp forceps deal with the part of polyp root. (2) Vaseline gauze is used in plugging nasal cavity resulting in an inconvenience of the patient. Since 1996, we have treated nasal polypus 42 cases by using Semi-conductor laser. There are advantages in the treatment: (1) Shortening operation time. (2) Cutting the root part of nasal polyp completely. (3) Resulting 83 percent cure rate. (4) Without plugging nasal cavity.
