Summary : Introduction: The aim of this study is to compare the degree of patient’s satisfaction after partial turbinectomy versus radiofrequency turbinate reduction in a context of nasal obstruction due to inferior turbinate hypertrophy with or without nasal septum deviation. Material and methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted at the department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck surgery of the Saint-Pierre Hospital, from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2010. A total of 177 patients composed 2 groups: the patients of the first group were treated by partial turbinectomy (N= 120), and the patients of the second group underwent an inferior turbinate radiofrequency (N= 57). A phone questionnaire was used to assess patients’ satisfaction after at least 6 months after the treatment. Results: Patients of the both groups have a high score of satisfaction. No statistically significant difference was found between both groups regarding the improvement of symptoms and the level of global satisfaction. Conclusions: Radiofrequency seems to be an efficient alternative approach in the treatment of nasal congestion due to inferior turbinate hyper­trophy. Long-term studies with larger samples and control group are necessary to corroborate our results.
