A Study of Comparison of Success Rate in Various Surgeries against Symptomology in Allergic Rhinitis

Harinarayana.N, Shreya Mahendra

Rhinitis is defined as inflammation of nasal mucos, a common disorder affecting up to 40 % of the population. Allergic rhinitis is an IgE - mediated immunologic response of nasal mucosa to air borne allergens and is characterised by watery nasal discharge, nasal obstruction, sneezing and itching in the nose. It is distributed mainly in males, aged between 20-40 years. The commonest finding is hypertrophied inferior turbinate producing nasal obstruction. The best result is by inferior turbinoplasty which gives almost complete relief. A clinical study undertaken to study the various problems with allergic rhinitis, which require surgical management to relieve symptomology. Various surgical techniques employed, complications and outcome of these procedures is studied in a two year prospective study from 2015 2017 at S.V.S Medical College and Hospital, Mahabubnagar, Telangana state. A total of 64 patients between 20 years to 55 years with allergic rhinitis symptoms were included. Appropriate Surgery done for recurrent cases with failed medical treatment. Follow up for 2 months to 6 months. Results are analysed and presented.
