OBJECTIVE Since the majority of the key elements such as trigeminal nerves, parasympathetic nerves, nasal glands, and blood vessels targeted by histamine and leukotrienes are found in the lamina propria of the nasal mucosa, its selective electrocautery has a rationale to improve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis with preservation of epithelial layer. To achieve the above goal, we performed the submucous electrocautery of the lamina propria (SECLP) following the submucous resection of the… CONTINUE READING
