30 patients of vasomotor rhinitis were treated by cryo-destruction of Vidian nasal branches and the success of the treatment was evaluated by an objective parameter i.e. saccharine test done prior and after the cryoapplication. The prolonged saccharine time before the treatment returns to normal after the treatment.
