Radiofrequency volumetric tissue reduction is safe and effective treatment for nasal obstruction secondary to allergic inferior turbinate hypertrophy refractory to medical treatment. Radio-frequency is delivered deep inside turbinate preserving its surface. Healing process induces submucosal fibrosis leading to tissue volume reduction that relieves nasal obstruction and other allergic symptoms.
