The effect of cryodestruction of Vidian nasal branches on nasal mucus flow in vasomotor rhinitis
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.
