  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

  1. To assess the effectiveness of inferior turbinate surgery on unrelieved or partially relieved nasal obstruction in patients after maximal medical treatment of proven allergic rhinitis.
  2. To compare the results of the different techniques that are used for this procedure.
  3. To assess both short and long term results, and the complications of the procedure.
