November 1, 2010  |  Dong-Hee Lee, MD, PhD and Eun Hye Kim, MD

Abstract

A case-control study was conducted at our secondary referral hospital to compare the efficacy of microdebrider-assisted turbinate reduction (MATR) with laser-assisted turbinate reduction (LATR) and to evaluate their efficacy according to types of hypertrophic inferior...
