Improvement of Postnasal Drip and Chronic Cough Outcomes in Chronic Rhinitis Patients Treated with Temperature-controlled Radiofrequency Neurolysis of the Posterior Nasal Nerve
Daniel Gorelik, BS,1 Jumah G. Ahmad, MD,2 Samuel E. Razmi, BS,3 Masayoshi Takashima, MD,1 Yin Yiu MD,1 Apurva Thekdi MD,1 Murugappan Ramanathan Jr, MD,4 Michael T. Yim MD,5 Omar G. Ahmed, MD1
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the contribution of postnasal drip (PND) and chronic cough (CC) to the symptomatology of patients with chronic rhinitis treated with temperature-controlled radiofrequency neurolysis of the posterior nasal nerve and correlate PND and CC scores with components of the reflective total nasal symptom score.
