[Laser Doppler flowmetry for evaluation of nasal mucosa microcirculation].


The purpose of this study was to determine the blood flow within the human nasal mucose and whether it is changed in patients with chronic rhinitis. Using a laser Doppler flowmeter (He-Ne Laser equipment PF2 type), we measured the nasal mucosa blood flow (NMBF) in a group of healthy young subjects 108 (18-25 years) and three types of chronic rhinitis 89… (More)
