In-Office Polypectomy with Suction Microdebrider

Survey

Highlights:

  • Patient with complete nasal obstruction undergoes debulking of nasal polyps in order to re-establish an airway
  • The reciprocating tip of the microdebrider is powered by wall suction

Keep in mind:

  • Topic decongestant spray and anesthetic are usually sufficient
  • Bleeding is kept to a minimum by not traumatizing mucosa at the base of the polyps
