Abstract

Data of this study provide quantitative and quantitative information of the impact of inferior turbinate hypertrophy on the aerodynamic pattern and physiological functions of nasal airflow. By including the model of turbulent airflow, the results of this experimental study will be more meaningful and useful in predicting the aerodynamic effects of surgical correction of inferior turbinate hypertrophy.
