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
nasi.
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.
