Antroconchopexy for surgical treatment of perennial rhinitis






Rhinology 30(3): 183-186

Antroconchopexy for surgical treatment of perennial rhinitis

We report on a rhinomanometric assessment of eleven patients undergoing antroconchopexy for relief of a "stuffy" nose. This little-known procedure involves the lateralization of the inferior turbinate through a large intranasal antrostomy. Our results demonstrate a significant improvement in postoperative inspiratory and expiratory nasal resistance. There was also a significant improvement in patient's scoring for nasal obstruction. Finer points of the surgical technique, and indications for the procedure are discussed.
