Article Title Long-term results of Vidian neurectomy
Abstract A number of publications appeared in the sixties claiming success of Vidian
neurectomy in patients with chronic vasomotor rhinitis and recurrent polyposis
During the period from October 1970 through February 1975, a total of 27
Vidian neurectomies was performed in 14 patients (seven males and seven
females). Two groups of seven patients each were operated on; seven patients
with chronic vasomotor rhinitis and seven patients with recurrent polyposis
nasi and rhinitis. Symptoms were quantitatively recorded pre- and postoperatively
and patients were followed up 15-66 months.
The Rotterdam results appear in the long run inferior to those published in
the literature.
