The biopsy specimens Cited by:  , Fukutake et al, speculated that laser turbinectomy could inhibit the allergic reaction by causing scar formation in the turbinate. However, Jovanovic and Dokic 7 measured the secretion of mediators in nasal lavage fluid before and after laser turbinectomy and concluded that laser turbinectomy has no effect on local allergic by: 1.
