Abstract

Nasal obstruction caused by the inferior turbinate is a common clinical problem. There are many surgical procedures which attempt to relieve it, but all of them have associated difficulties.

We describe, for the first time, a new method, namely multiple submucosal out-fractures of the inferior turbinates, which is both effective and free from serious complication.
