OBJECTIVES One of the major causes of chronic nasal airway obstruction is disease of the inferior turbinate. However, there is no agreement on how to deal with this problem. Comparison was made of the nasal functions after treatment by radiofrequency tissue ablation, laser ablation, and partial turbinectomy using subjective symptom scores and objective(More)
Novel 2-(1,5-bis(aryl)penta-1,4-dien-2-yl)benzo[d]thiazol (5a,b) and 2-(((1S,2S,E)-2(benzo[d]thiazol-2-yl)-1,5-di-arylpent-4-en-1-yl)thio)aniline (6a,b) derivatives were obtained by addition of 2aminobenzothiol to bis-benzylidinecyclobutanones (3a,b). The structures of the obtained compounds were characterized using the spectroscopic methods (NMR, IR,(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the effectiveness of radiofrequency tissue ablation in respiratory obstruction due to snoring and turbinate hypertrophy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-three patients (9 females, 24 males; mean age 35.3 years; range 19 to 55 years) underwent 38 submucosal probe applications in the inferior turbinate (n = 15), soft palate (n = 13), and(More)
