Abstract

A short anatomical and physiological review of the vidian nerve is presented. The authors have described the surgical technique they use which is somewhat similar to the one described by Nomura. Eight cases are presented which had been unsuccessfully treated by multiple radical nasal polypectomies. The results are comparable to those published in the literature and it appears that vidian neurectomy has merit in the treatment of recurrent nasal polyposis but must be used in association with radical polypectomy.
