Lee et al., "Efficacy of endoscopic submucosal resection
with a ligation device for removing small rectal carcinoid tumor compared with endoscopic mucosal resection: analysis of 100 cases," Digestive Endoscopy, vol.
Comparison of radiofrequency tissue volume reduction and submucosal resection
with microdebrider in inferior turbinate hypertrophy.
Conclusion: Local anaesthesia was found to be a far more safe, effective and economical option for submucosal resection
of nasal septum.
An even newer technique, submucosal resection
with a turbinate microdebrider blade, effectively addresses turbinate hypertrophy and allows for the preservation of mucosa, but it requires general anesthesia and longer operating time.
The patient underwent transoral submucosal resection
via a midline soft-palate-split approach (figure 3).
Thirty patients were treated by total inferior turbinectomy and thirty cases were treated by submucosal resection
of inferior turbinate and results in terms of relief of nasal obstruction based on VAS (Visual Analogue Score) were observed with follow-up carried out at three weeks.
(4) If access remains restricted, a submucosal resection
of the nasal septum and a bony turbinoplasty will allow for further exposure and will facilitate extraction.
Micro flap technique involves an incision on the superior surface of the vocal fold, submucosal resection
, and preservation of the mucosa as a biological dressing along the leading edge of the vocal fold8.
The many types of surgery for inferior turbinate enlargement can be broadly classified into three categories: (1) simple mechanical means, such as crushing or lateral fracturing, (2) destructive procedures, such as electrocautery or laser vaporization, which reduce the volume of the turbinate, and (3) actual resection procedures, such as submucosal resection
, partial resection, trimming of the turbinates, or inferior turbinoplasty.
