OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy of microdebrider-assisted inferior turbinoplasty with lateralization (MAITL) compared to submucosal resection for hypertrophic inferior turbinates. STUDY DESIGN Surgical outcomes were evaluated with respect to visual analogue scale, anterior rhinomanometry, and saccharin test results. METHODS From January 2002 to December 2006 inclusively, 160 patients with perennial allergic rhinitis and hypertrophic inferior turbinates… CONTINUE READING
