MUHAMMAD JAMALULLAH, ASAD CHUGHTAI, KAMRAN ZAMMURD MALIK.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of endoscopic assisted microdebrider resection of inferior turbinate, in cases of Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy
STUDY DESIGN: A prospective interventional study.
PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY: Study was conducted from 1stApril 2010 to 30th Sep 2014, in POF Hospital Wah Cantonment.
METHODOLOGY: All the patients with bilateral nasal obstruction of more than 6 months duration and having bilateral Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy were operated by microdebrider and the results were assessed and compared with national and international literature.
RESULTS: A total of 50 patients were operated, 60% were male and 40% female, age range was 18 to 40 years. All the patients underwent endoscopic assisted microdebrider resection of inferior turbinate. All the patients have significant subjective and objective improvement in nasal obstruction except one who developed recurrence of the disease. Only 10% patients developed complications like post-op infection 4% haemorrhage, 2% synachae formation 2% and recurrence 2%.
CONCLUSION: Since controlled amount of the tissue can be resected from the submucosal plane, the results with endoscopic assisted microdebrider resection of inferior turbinate are safe with minimal complication.

Key words: Endoscopic, Turbinoplasty, Microdebrider, Nasal Obstruction, Hypertrophied Inferior Turbinate.
