Purpose of review There are numerous surgical managements of hypertrophic inferior turbinate. Controversy still exists involving the optimal surgical technique for hypertrophic inferior turbinate. The current review will discuss the most commonly used techniques for turbinate surgery and highlight their recently published clinical outcomes. Recent findings Microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty, along with total removal of inferior turbinate mucosa, turned out to have no negative impact on… 
Diode laser–assisted inferior turbinoplasty in resistant cases of allergic rhinitis: a clinical and histopathological study
TLDR
Diode laser produces histopathologic changes in the inferior turbinate soft tissues, providing excellent ablation of the soft tissue with controllable performance and good hemostasis, and is a safe, minimally invasive, and effective procedure in relieving nasal obstruction secondary to inferior turbinated hypertrophy as well as other symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
Comparative Study of Micro debrider-Assisted Versus Radio frequency-Assisted Inferior Turbinoplasty
Objective: This study was carried out to compare postoperative outcome between microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty and radiofrequency-assisted turbinoplasty in the treatment of chronic inferior
Study of Different Surgical Techniques in the Treatment of Hypertrophied Inferior Turbinate
Hypertrophied inferior turbinate is a common cause of nasal obstruction. It occurs due to a large number of common conditions like allergic rhinitis, intrinsic rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis, deviated
Potassium titanyl phosphate laser turbinate reduction in the management of allergic inferior turbinate hypertrophy: Our experience
TLDR
KTP laser turbinate reduction is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure in the treatment of allergic inferior turbinate hypertrophy, with a minimal effect on the nasal mucosa.
Comparison of Radiofrequency Thermal Ablation and Microdebrider-Assisted Turbinoplasty in Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy: A Prospective, Randomized, and Clinical Study.
TLDR
Both radiofrequency thermal ablation and microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty are effective techniques for treating inferior turbinate hypertrophy.
Comparing the Effects of Inferior Turbinate Radiofrequency and Intranasal Corticoster-oid on Symptoms Severity and Quality of Life in Patients with Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy
TLDR
Radiofrequency (RF) of inferior turbinate is known as an effec-tive method to decrease obstruction as well as other symptoms and improving quality of life in patients with ITH due to aller-gic rhinitis.
Conchal contractility after inferior turbinate hypertrophy treatment:A prospective, randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Because the RF procedure produces fibrosis in the vascular tissues, inferior turbinates do not have a shrinking response to decongestant administration, and administration of NCS administration maintains the contractility function compared to RF application.
Endoscopic Submucosal Resection Versus Endoscopic Submucosal Diathermy for Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy
TLDR
Both endoscopic submucous diathermy and endoscopic SUBMucous resection are equally effective in improving airway in inferior turbinate hypertrophy with a slight advantage of endoscopicSubmucus resection in the early postoperative period.
Assessment of safety and efficacy of extraturbinal microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty versus partial inferior turbinectomy
Objective The aim was to compare the extraturbinal microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty (MAT) with the partial inferior turbinectomy (PIT) based on subjective and objective parameters. Patients and
Surgical Treatment for the Refractory Allergic Rhinitis: State of the Art
TLDR
It is confirmed that no ideal standard technique for turbinate reduction has been developed so far regarding the multitude of different surgical procedures, and it is challenging to recommend evidence-based surgical techniques.

TLDR
Inferior turbinate surgery is an evolving operative concept and the evidence supporting the efficacy of the various techniques remains undecided, and more prospective controlled studies are needed with both objective and subjective outcome measures.
Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy: Review and Graduated Approach to Surgical Management
TLDR
This article highlights the available literature and gaps in current knowledge on inferior turbinate hypertrophy and presents a graduated approach to the management of ITH.
Comparison of ultrasound turbinate reduction, radiofrequency tissue ablation and submucosal cauterization in inferior turbinate hypertrophy
TLDR
It may be, thus, concluded that ultrasound turbinate reduction is an effective and safe procedure for the management of chronic hypertrophic rhinitis, in patients failing to respond to medical treatment.
Inferior turbinate surgery: an adjunct to successful treatment of nasal obstruction in 408 patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that turbinate surgery, particularly when unilateral, in the carefully selected patient with nasal obstruction is a useful adjunct to septal surgery.
A randomized clinical study: outcome of submucous resection of compensatory inferior turbinate during septoplasty.
TLDR
Submucous resection of a hypertrophied inferior turbinate is necessary for the treatment of nasal obstruction and led to a distinctive increase in cross-sectional area of nasal patency when the two groups were compared.
Contemporary techniques in inferior turbinate reduction: survey results of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
TLDR
It appears that limited turbinate excision and turbinate outfracture are the most commonly-used techniques in private practice by plastic surgeons.
Midterm outcomes of outfracture of the inferior turbinate
TLDR
Compared with the preoperative status, those patients who underwent turbinate outfracture procedures displayed a reduction in the angle and the distance between the inferior turbinate bone and the lateral wall of the nasal fossa and the area lateral to the inferior turinate bone one month following surgery.
Radiofrequency Volume Turbinate Reduction versus Partial Turbinectomy: Clinical and Histological Features
TLDR
Compared to partial resection, intraturbinal turbinate reduction seems to be the method of choice to better preserve nasal physiology, although the ciliated epithelium appeared partially impaired.
Ultrasonic Bone Aspirator Turbinoplasty: A Novel Approach for Management of Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy
TLDR
Ulasonic bone aspiration turbinoplasty is a safe and effective addition to the techniques employed for inferior turbinate reduction and addresses actual deformities in the turbinate bone which cannot be effectively treated through microdebrider or radiofrequency-assisted turbinplasty.
Respecting nasal mucosa during turbinate surgery: end of the dogma?
TLDR
Surgical removal of the inferior turbinate mucosa with the microdebrider in patients suffering from hypertrophic chronic rhinitis allows the perfect regeneration of physiological respiratory tissue and doesn`t have a negative impact on healing time and offsets any adverse postoperative event.
