Arteriovenous hemangioma formation following radiofrequency ablation for inferior turbinate reduction

October 27, 2011  |  Senol Polat, MD, Hasan Murat Tanyeri, MD, and Selcuk Bilgi, MD

Abstract

Inferior turbinate reduction by radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been recommended as an easy and safe option for the treatment of patients with inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Complications of this type of excision are generally acceptable. We describe a case of RFA turbinate...
