Abstract
Objective To explore the feasibility and clinical value of treatment for intranasal synechiae by CO2 laser with reduce the incidence of complication in endoscopic sinus surgery. Methods A retrospective study was made of 31 cases treated for intranasal synechiae by CO2 laser. A CO2 laser was used to facilitate removed intranasal adhesion between the middle turbinate and the lateral nasal wall with minimal blood loss under endoscopic visualization. Results 31 cases were followed up beyond 24 months. The overall effective rate was 90.3%. 3 patients underwent a revision endoscopic procedure. Conclusions The method has many advantages such as clear operative field, safe and satisfactory. So it is a good way to treatment for intranasal synechiae.
